It was never about the chicks and free money gathers no moss. It's all about Rock & Roll with the necessary influence of rap, ska, reggae and funk artists to keep the party rollicking.
Soil 7t7 has been together from April 2000 and has ever since taken audiences aback with their unique sound. They are a fresh sounding trinity of good-looking lesbians (they like women very much) from the best city in SA (without a beach), Pretoria. Their long awaited independent, debut album was launched on the 8th of March this year and people everywhere are raving about it
Soil 7t7 consists of Franco Jamneck, harassing the guitar and doing the stand up comedy and rap, Jay Bolton – walking the bass through party-avenue and is guilty of the exploitation of vocalism, and Bets.V.Z, resisting the decay of time and the slowing down of the human body through percussive demonstration.
This band featured at The Rock Concert 3 and 4 and left a lasting impression on the crowd. Beeld had this to say: "Wonderboom launched their CD, Tell someone who cares, at the occasion, while especially Tweak and Soil 7t7 showed how the voices of a younger rock generation can get a audience screaming hysterically." (Plus (Beeld) – Wed. 26 March 2003).
You will definitely find all the traces of rock and heavy music throughout their show but equal amounts of funk, rap, reggae and ska as well as heaps and heaps of energy.
Soil 7t7 has had a short but very full career, having all their fun independently. They have played all over South Africa and have performed at some major festivals including Oppikoppi and Woodstock.
The single "Get Some" has been released on 'Wicked Rock - Let us be heard' in December 2002 as well as SL Magazine's Selection CD #11 – April 2003. It will also be used in a video production called Liquid Paradise. Another song called "Modest" was also released on a compilation album called "Wicked Bootlegs" (March 2003) which includes USA band Seven13.
Soil 7t7 will be a releasing their new single "Woman" on September 15, 2003.
