Armed with unforgettable melodies and catchy choruses, The SoapGirls energy, rawness and authenticity live, has earned them a formidable reputation. Performing continuously throughout 2017, these fearless French born sisters Millie and Mie, have slayed critics and earned a dedicated group of followers known as the ‘The SoapSuds’, who follow the band across the UK and Europe. The SoapGirls are society’s rejects and their punk credentials were rubber stamped by scintillating performances at the legendary Rebellion Punk Music Festival last year and such was the their success that they were asked back to play the Blackpool event again in 2018. The SoapGirls write outsider anthems that are androgynous, audacious and straight from the heart. Following the release of their album Societys Rejects, features on there band have appeared in Classic Rock, The Mirror and Vive Le Rock, while their last two singles were played on BBC Radio 1 and play listed by Planet Rock Radio. Fighting prejudice and haters with a sword of honesty and a shield of integrity The SoapGirls have endured much, but have always risen above those that have sought to derail them. The girls shine during their exhilarating, firework-strewn live performances, putting inclusivity and freedom of expression at the core of each show. They are keen to show that music should be for everyone and everyone should be free to be themselves. Alluring, hypnotic and nonchalant The SoapGirls started their career in Cape Town performing as street artists for eight years and were given their name by the general public. “We have been The SoapGirls since we were 8 and 9 selling hand made soap and street performing for various causes, we did this 365 days of the year for 9 years”. At twelve and thirteen they began their recording career and signed to Universal Records releasing their debut album in 2011 which topped the domestic charts. After conquering South Africa, The SoapGirls with their thirst for knowledge and justice, wanted to broaden their musical horizons, leading them first to stages in the United States and then the UK and Europe, with a determination to fight against struggle and heartache. The SoapGirls first toured the UK 2015, releasing their first independent well received album Calls For Rebellion, with one critic accurately calling the album “Raw, catchy, anarchistic Rock and Roll.” Guitarist Mie sets the pace beautifully as she powers through each song with a certain style and grace, that captivates every audience. Her biggest musical influences are Fleetwood Mac, Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, Heart, Nirvana, Butthole Surfers and R.E.M. and prefers more chilled out melancholy music. Bass player Millie is a fan of heavier music from acts like Alice in Chains, Marilyn Manson, The Smashing Pumpkins, Korn, Alanis Morrissette, Hole, Aretha Franklin, Nirvana, Napalm Death and L7!. This is evident in her performance as she connects and hypnotises the crowd. Both Millie and Mie swap vocal duties giving them scope to show their individual nature in a way that adds to The SoapGirls dynamic. Their common ground is grunge, but their ethic is punk. What’s in a genre anyway? It’s all music at the end of the day. The SoapGirls remind us that music can still be straight to the point, efficient, honest and exciting, so brace yourself for The SoapGirls’s next chapter.
‘Are You Listening?’ The Franklys demand an answer, scrawling it across the cover of their debut album – a title that seizes you immediately. Think frenetic garage rock meets grunge. Add into the mix a love for screaming guitars, in your face bass, hard hitting drums and raw vocals then you get something that resembles: The Franklys.
Inspired by the indie rock scene in the UK, Swedish Jennifer Ahlkvist and Fanny Broberg moved to London to embark on something compelling and new. The girls crossed paths with bassist Zoë Biggs and adding drummer Lexi Clark – The Franklys were formed.
Wasting no time, they threw themselves into relentlessly touring across the UK, Europe and America, including a recent support tour with Airbourne and festival slots at Isle of Wight 2015 and Download Festival 2016.
Building a reputation for themselves as one of the most exciting live bands on the London circuit and beyond, they have transferred the unique Franklys sound to their debut album; truly showing their diversity as a band. An album with immense energy throughout, a melting pot stirred with garage, heavy rock, undertones of post-punk, whilst keeping a lively pop funk undercurrent, keeps you wondering what these ladies will pull out of their hat next. Steve Lamacq, BBC 6 Music describes the first single taken from the album, ‘Castaway’, as the “Best thing they’ve done to date!”, and, judging by this, you should be listening.

Wir nennen unsere Musik selbst Zäpf Metal. Es handelt sich dabei um ein feines Premium Fun-Punk-Rock- Metal Gebräu, serviert mit zäpf-freundlichen deutschen Texten. Mit einem klarem Blick durch stets gefüllte Gläser auf die Welt, sind die Songs vulgär, obszön & laut – doch dabei immer kritisch. Zäpf Metal macht extrem viel Spaß, weil es sich immer um „Das Wichtigste….“ dreht. Gute Laune ist angesagt, denn der Alltag ist grau und vor allem trocken genug! Live bekommt das Ganze dann noch eine einzigartige Mitmachkomponente und hat viel Charme und Herz. Gegründet wurde die „kleine Band mit dem großen Durst“ 2010 in einer Wohnung in München Neuhausen. Seit Oktober 2015 besteht die Formation nun in dieser Besetzung und bereichert die Live Clubs der Republik.Vier Dinos auf einer Mission: The Heisenberghs zerstören euren Planeten …bevor es der Byranno tut!
