Save Ferris split last year, but now Monique Powell has decided to go it alone! In a long post at http://saveferris.moniquepowell.com/, Mo explained that she has a new band, under her own name, and will be playing Save Ferris classics. The whole thing can be read at the above link, but here is a small portion from Mo herself. “Unfortunately, I am not able to tour under the name Save Ferris. However, this will not stop me from accomplishing my goal of playing Save Ferris songs for as many fans as possible. From this point forward, I will be touring under my own name, Monique Powell. Although the name is different, rest assured that I will be playing your Save Ferris favorites, as well as some fun new covers and maybe a few new songs.” Two other ex-Ferris members will join Mo in her new band…
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.
