Student Rick turn back the clock

Student Rick have gone all 80’s on us when they went into the recording studio recently to lay down a few new tracks.

During their stay at a Milwaukee studio, the band took a trip back to the 80’s and brought the hair, lipstick, and leather pants into the studio and recorded two new songs.

The first song, ‘Journey – Anyway You Want It’ is going on Victory Records new compilation Victory Style 5 as
an unreleased track.

The second song, Belinda Carlisle’s ‘Heave Is A Place
On Earth’ will be featured on the infamous Fearless Records compilation Punk Goes Pop featuring songs from many different artist covering pop songs.

More information, such as release dates on the compilations will be brought to you as soon as we have them.

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.
