The ‘Bring Them Sluts’ Tour 2005

The Punktastic Recordings tour continues tonight despite the cold and wet as Echofreddy and The Maple State hit Leeds. Both bands wowed Scunthorpe last night, packing the Lincoln Imp and selling a ton of merch. If you’re yet to hear the new Echofreddy songs then you’re in for a real treat, while The Maple State are literally on fire – last night was possibly the best I’ve ever seen them play. The tour continues all next week at the following venues…
feb 26 – Leeds Packhorse w/ Milk2Sugars, Dudefish
feb 27 – Southampton Guildhall Solent Suite w/Not Katies, Mayday Warning
Feb 28 – Bournemouth Mr Smiths w/The Eldora Parade

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.
