Not Katies say bo selecta!

It’s been quite a good year for the guys in Not Katies, releasing an album to critical acclaim and grabbing numerous high profile support slots. But if you thought this year was a good ‘un, just wait until next year… “It’s been a great year for us, probably the high point was getting signed to Deck Cheese, although it’s had strong contenders in the form of a support slot with The Movielife and Thursday, the sold out show at The Garage with Good Charlotte and of course, releasing our first album,” the band told Punktastic. “We have already been in negotiation with Bon Jovi’s ‘people’ about doing a possible world arena tour (apparently Jon and Richie love our work)… also we are touring with our friends in Phinius Gage throughout February which will coincide with the release of the single and we are planning on making a follow-up video to ‘2 Halves of 2’ but we’re not sure what track yet. It would be cool if people could get in touch with suggestions.” Oh, and they tip My Awesome Compilation for greatness! Good choice guys…

Paul, otherwise known as Sav, is quite possibly the only member of the Punktastic team to actually have a proper job. But don't hold that against him. He's actually a proper journalist, (a reporter for a daily northern paper) and so adds a bit of credence to the team. Except you wouldn't think that by reading his reviews. Maybe somebody should tell him that it is quality and not quantity that counts! Sav actually ended up working for Punktastic after meeting Nick at university, and the pair bonded over all things punk rock. Another guitarist, he also "writes a lot of songs about relationships, and how mine went wrong." Oh, and he loves the Ataris, if you hadn't already noticed. In his spare time he worships at the church of Kris Roe... Other fave bands include: MxPx, New Found Glory, Blink 182, Weezer, Midtown, Reel Big Fish, The Get Up Kids, Alkaline Trio, NOFX, Green Day, Deftones, Lit and Silverchair to name but a few. Hobbies include, sleeping, drinking, eating fish and supporting Grimsby Town FC. But hey, somebody has to.
