I like P.A.I.N

If you like ska/punk, then you're going to love these guys. If you don't know what I'm talking about I still recommend checking them out. It's really addictive music!

P.A.I.N stands for Propaganda and Information Network. There's about 5 people in the band. John is the singer and plays synth and sampler – he was also in AOS3 and a band called Less. Most of the members have been Radical Dance Faction as well.

They're on Iron Man Recordings and here's a bit of a spiel about them from sonicbids.com:

ESTABLISHED in 1995, The Propaganda And Information Network (as P.A.I.N is officially named) was first put together from the ashes of two seminal free festival bands: A.O.S.3 and Radical Dance Faction. Brought together to carry on the same Anarcho-style rantings, but with a much harder, Punk Rock attitude to it (less toking and more drinking!) within the first 7 days of forming P.A.I.N managed to book up a 3 week tour, literally writing the set in soundchecks.

The band went from strength to strength releasing their first live demo (Prison's no Place for Punishment – a real collector's item these days,) within their first month of existence. Well that was 11 years ago. Since then P.A.I.N. have released 2 studio albums, 2 cd singles and a couple of live albums, and are currently working on a new studio album and a P.A.I.N. in Dub album.

There are a few gigs springing up around the country and more tours coming up in a couple of weeks so things are going great guns at the moment.  "Sharpen your cutlasses boys, theres a mighty stormy sea ahead!!"
