thisGIRL get made up!

By paul

Rising UK stars thisGIRL have been all over the shop recently, gracing all the mainstream magazines, but it’s great to see these top Rotherham lads still have time for us smaller fish…

Drummer Ryan Jenkinson emailed Punktastic to let us know how they’ve been coping since they’ve, ahem, got around, even letting slip that the band were getting close to Gareth Gates, although not in the most routine way…

Ryan said: “Allsorts blowing up at the min, quite overwhelming but we are grounded and still working hard!!

“The tour we just finished has been amazing! The crowds were waaaay bigger than
we ever imagined, with more and more people getting hold of the album. Word is
spreading quick!

“Reading and Leeds should be funny… thats all i’ll say!!!

“The Trouble TV thing was fun, we had makeup and wardrobe etc.. I fell in love with the chief makeup lady and she told me that she’s Gareth Gates personal makeup piece DOH!! outclassed as always…”
