Although we do tend to review 95% of CDs sent to us, we do have a few rules and we would love you forever if you could adhere to them please. We no longer reviews CDs with less than three songs on – we have to draw the line and whilst in the past we have done two trackers, we will not any more. On a similar note, please do not send us any ‘extreme metal’ or blatant Oasis-esque indie to review. Again, we blur boundaries a little, but we won’t review stuff that’s blatantly not suited to this site. Always make sure there are enough stamps on your package to cover postage as we will not collect parcels that do not have enough on them. On a similar note, if you intend sending us something by DHL or UPS, please, please email us in advance and we will give you an alternative delivery address. Thank you.

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.
