Slapstick DVD

Taken from “Asian Man Records has set a release date for the long-awaited reunion DVD from Slapstick. The much loved Chicago-based ska/punk band formed in the 90s and saw members go on to form and perform in The Lawrence Arms, Alkaline Trio, Colossal, The Smoking Popes, Duvall, Tuesday, The Broadways, and The Honor System. The DVD is due out June 22nd, 2006 and is titled Reunion Show; it features the band’s last ever show at the Fireside Bowl and will be fleshed out with commentary from vocalist Brendan Kelley and drummer Rob Kellenberger. In 1997, the band’s discography was compiled for the aptly named Discography release, also on Asian Man Records. Kelly and bassist Dan Andriano also reunited last year to form the Falcon.”

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.
