Punk rocks

This weeks Radio 1 Punk Show was very special indeed. We sent our engineers down to London’s famous Brixton Academy to record the Dropkick
Murphys’ final UK date. We have 45 minutes of live music from Bostons finest, plus live tracks from the Mad Caddies and The Briggs. Not only that all 3 sets are introduced by the bands themselves. All that plus our record chart the Outlaw Anthems, not to be missed!! It will be available to stream until 4am next Tuesday 3rd March at www.bbc.co.uk/radio1/mikedavies

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.
