Route 215 get a new member

Remember the name Route 215 because next year these London boys are going to be ripping up a town near you. With two big tours already in the bag in the first 3 months of the year, plus a new record (which people in the know tell me sounds immense) 2003 is a big year for the 215 boys. So much so, they are gearing up already – with the addition of a new member, Sean! Drummer Nick told Punktastic: “We are still involved in line up changes and have found one new guitarist but in a shock turn up
for us we have decided to have two guitarists because of them bloody Dow brothers (Skirtbox) and their guitar twiddling on our album – we cant even think about
repoducing it live without two guitarists.” Anyway, catch the band on tour with The Bombjacks and The Travoltas, then Brodie and My Dad Joe, and look out for lots more on the boys on Punktastic next year. Rock!

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.
