Submitted: “After just over 3 years Vice have decided to call it a day, there’s no original way of writing these things so here goes. We’ve had some great times, met some great people and played some really memorable gigs, along with some utter shite, but the good out weighs the bad. Towards the end of the summer it became clear that the 4 of us would not be in the same position come September and we contemplated ideas of trying to make it work but it has just not been possible and so we are bowing out. I’m going to leave this brief but a major thank you to everyone who ever supported us from family to friends, to Martin and various industry heads to all of the bands we’ve enjoyed hanging out with, you know who you are.”
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.
