Opened in 1993, The Garage quickly established itself as the capital's finest indie and rock venue playing host to many bands early on in their careers. Playing a show at The Garage became something of a right of passage. The venue became part of MAMA Group plc's estate in August 2007 in the acquisition of Mean Fiddler Holdings (which also included the Jazz Cafe and Borderline). In January 2009 MAMA Group and HMV created a new joint venture Mean Fiddler Group under which HMV acquired 50% ownership of 11 of MAMA Group's venues, namely The Garage, Jazz Cafe, Heaven, G-A-Y Bar, G-A-Y Late, The Borderline, Aberdeen's Moshulu and the renamed: HMV Hammersmith Apollo, HMV Forum, HMV Picture House, Edinburgh and opening later this year the HMV Institute, Birmingham... The Garage was refurbished in time for it's relaunch as the Relentless Garage in June 2009, with joint naming rights with Relentless Energy Drinks. The refurbishment featured major improvements including new dressing rooms and production facilities as well as new PA & Lights. It now has an increased capacity from 350 to 600.

FRENZY - Formed in 1983 by Steve Whitehouse, FRENZY went on to be one of the premier 1980s generated neo-rockabilly/psychobilly bands of that era. The band regularly played and headlined the original KLUBFOOT at The Clarendon in Hammersmith and also appeared on many of the now iconic live Klubfoot albums.
Since the band's 2007 re-launch (although the band have never actually split ) and the release of Nitro Boy , they have gained a fantastic reputation for one of the best live / stage shows on the circuit, with press reviews always stating that Frenzy have dominated any festival they have played !!!
2008 saw Frenzy celebrate 25 years as a band, and in honour of this the band played a World tour, taking in America, Brazil, Europe, Scandinavia and Japan.
In 2010 their 'In The Blood' album was released on People Like You & Crash Records (to critical acclaim), and this coincided with one of the busiest live performance years in the band's history to date.
2013 is a special year for FRENZY as they celebrate their 30th Anniversary. The guys are in the process of recording their new album ' Rust In The Machine ' and have been playing shows all over the World again.
FRENZY have stood the test of time and have cemented their place in History as one of the most prolific, long lived and energetic Rockin' bands on the scene !!
THE LONG TALL TEXANS - It's around 30 years since three fresh-faced Long Tall Texans emerged from the melting pot that was the Brighton music scene with their take on psychobilly. It wasn't long before they were firm favourites on the scene with some classic albums under their belts, Radio 1 airplay and numerous national and international tours. During the halcyon days of the legendary Klub Foot they graced the stage on a regular basis immortalised on wax and VCR. Since then they have hardly let up, in fact where have the years gone? The fun and rocking credentials certainly haven't left them. 2013 has seen them share a stage on the Queen Mary in LA with the likes of Offspring and Iggy Pop and have still had time to record a brand new studio album entitled 'The Devil Made Us Do It' which is due out imminently. The Long Tall Texans ride on and on and there is no sign of a sunset anywhere on the horizon.
EPILEPTIC HILLBILLYS - The Epileptic Hillbillys are a band from the 80's, whose members got back together again a few years ago, after playing in some of psychobilly's and rockin scene's biggest bands, just to play a couple of gigs for kicks. Since then they have had 2 cd albums released on Western Star and an album on Crazy Love Records. The Epileptic Hillbilllys keep going from strength to strength .
COFFIN NAILS - Low down and dirty scoundrels the Coffin Nails put the 'psycho' into 'billy'. Veterans of the circuit they're still kicking ass, with the title track from the latest album receiving over 100,000 views on YouTube (The Dead Don't Get Older). Headed by their larger than life frontman "Humungus", they continue to play shows across Europe, in the USA and even Brazil.
AFTERSHOW:- DEATH VALLY SURFERS - DVS Started with a plan to have fun on & off stage. Influenced by 50's B-Movies, Garage Surf, & Psychobilly. D.V.S have a jump about Rhythm, like Bo-Diddley on speed. They surf out with a Punkabilly style, while the sax man swings in & out the beat.
DVS have performed this stage chaos all over Europe & even down in South America. The Drums & Contra Bass pump out an infectious rhythm, that rocks your bones. We love that Crazy Rock'n'Roll. If you want to party, then these are your boys.
Lets meet the band: Russ Surfer - jumps about like a demented baboon; Jay Vee - this 6 string strummer was born in a garage; Karl Dibbs- Estonia's bearded drum skin basher; Siim - parping away on the honking sax; John Boy - slapping the bass with his Gold Top beat
One final thing- if you can't laugh at D.V.S then you should go to see a Doctor. D.V.S could be the worst or the best Rock'n'Roll band in the world. Only you can decide. But it surely will be a blast!
