The SoapGirls

 
 
The SoapGirls have just finished making the video for their debut UK release – Bad Bitch, a caustic slice of vitriolic Rock’n’Roll & you can order the download now from https://www.cdbaby.com/cd/thesoapgirls
 
The SoapGirls hailing from South Africa were given their name by the general public  “We have been The SoapGirls since we were 8 and 9 selling soap and street performing for various charities, we did this 365 days of the year for 9 years” 
 
Bad Bitch was written 2 days after The SoapGirls were attacked in Hastings, resulting in a “very emotional and very raw” song. This unprovoked attack, involved sexist abuse and took place when The SoapGirls were performing live, with the perpetrators throwing copious amounts of red liquid over the band.  “We hated not being able to fight back and still suffer a lot of anxiety when we are performing as a result of what happened, I became slightly jaded and Bad Bitch was born after we decided we would never take shit from anyone ever again!!”
 
Bad Bitch sees the girls developing a recognized ‘sound’ with their ever-so-edgy vocals,  Mille’s heavy  throbbing bass lines and Mie letting rip with searing lead guitar work, creating an insouciant blast of filthy rock’n’roll.  
 
Proud and humble The SoapGirls are a force of nature who inspire anyone to “follow their dream and believe in themselves”. 
 
The SoapGirls stand for freedom and non-judgement, fiercely outspoken for animal rights, society’s most vulnerable  and anti government policies they write straight from the heart with every song being a real experience, either with themselves or someone close.
 
“Be brave enough to be yourself always, we have only one life that we know of so Rock it and embrace it without losing yourself” – The SoapGirls 
 
To see these girls perform live is a must.

About Louise Swift

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot! My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!' The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;) Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
