Today’s final thought

It’s been a good year for Brighton skate punks Phinius Gage. Signed to Deck Cheese, a new album in the can and a spot of publicity too, things are definitely on the up. And with it being the season of goodwill and all, vocalist Ade decided to give all the Punktastic readers his own festive message. He said: “Thanks to everyone that has supported us, including you guys at Punktastic, it means a lot. Thanks to Eugene and Miles for putting their faith in us. Everyone, keep going to shows, supporting the scene and remember why you got into this scene in the first place, sometimes it’s hard and you get caught up in what’s hot and what’s not, just be whoever ever the fuck you are and listen to whatever the fuck you like……and be positive it’s all good. Blauw!” Now just take care of yourselves, each other and Ade…

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.
