A) The Event

B) The Bands


Soaked is an up-and-coming indie punk band founded by Brandon Frisby in 2022. Brandon initially started the band on his own before recruiting Ronnie Cochrane on bass and Alex Newman on drums. The band draws its inspiration from iconic British punk and indie bands such as The Jam, Arctic Monkeys, Oasis, and the Sex Pistols to create their unique, passionate, and heavy sound.
Their chemistry and shared taste in music make for a cohesive and unique sound that has captured the attention of the British indie punk community. Soaked is currently working on releasing their EP, which has been recorded at Sick Note Production in Maldon Essex and Abbey Road Studios.
They have expanded their reach with shows in London and other major cities such as Edinburgh, Manchester, Birmingham, Norwich, and Brighton. Their music is characterized by raw and authentic lyrics that express the essence of British daily life, while their energetic and dynamic live performances have won them a growing and loyal fan base.
With the goal of touring up and down the UK, releasing more music and playing more shows, Soaked shows no signs of slowing down. As Soaked's momentum continues to grow, they are becoming one of the most exciting up-and-coming indie punk bands on the UK music scene.



The Molotovs

The band consists of:

  • Mathew Cartlidge – Lead Guitar/Vocals/Songwriter
  • Issey Carts – Bass Guitar/Vocals
  • Ice Dob – Drums/Backing Vocals.


You’d be hard pressed to find another young rock band on the UK circuit working as impressively as The Molotovs. They exploded onto the London live scene mid-2020 and with over 200 gigs under their belts to date, they’re showing absolutely no signs of easing off. This trio are fast gaining a reputation for their incendiary and highly energetic stage craft. With short, sharp, punchy originals and a strong aesthetic, The Molotovs really are at the forefront of a new youth explosion. 


Lead Guitarist/vocalist/songwriter Mathew Cartlidge (think effortless swagger), bass guitarist/vocalist Issey Carts (think pure rock-chick) and drummer Ice Dob (rethink ‘hit like a girl’) are definitely on the rock radar, with support slots to date with Blondie, The Libertines, former Sex Pistols Paul Cook and Glen Matlock, Sham 69, The Subways and The Vapors - not to mention being spotted in a crowd of 90,000 and name checked by Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong. 


With influences spanning The Who, Clash and Jam, rightthrough to Oasis, The Libertines and Arctic Monkeys, The Molotovs are finding their sound resonates with a vast eclectic audience who appreciate the raw power, intensity and dynamism on offer. Get out and see this electrifying band in action if you want some bragging rights.
