The Maple State hit the jackpot

Taken from the TMS myspace: “We’ve been invited to play The Great Northern Music Show for Channel M this thursday at the Manchester 235 Casino. It’s totally FREE and is filmed by the good people at Channel M, so if you’re coming you had better iron your shirt and shine your shoes as your going to be on TV! However this isn’t just some two bit Punch and Judy show down in Margate, you can’t just breeze in off the street, you need to email [email protected] and tell them you want to see The Maple State on the 1st of March and give them your name, address and phone number and they’ll hook you up! Also it is strictly over 18’s as it is a Casino, so bring photo ID and bag of coins to blow in the slot machines!”

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.
