Summer 1982 in London. The city stomped. The Meteors had created a new music and life-style: Psychobilly.

Loads of young urban Rockabillies took a razor to their head and followed bands like the Stingrays, the Sharks, Restless or the Ricochets.

At this time the young singer Pip Hancox met a brilliant guitar player named Steward Osborne. They made up a band called the GUANA BATZ. One of the most successful bands of our scene ever. They played the early “Klubfoot” gigs and a few “Night of the long knifes”. They had several hits in the independent charts and their 7 inch “I’m on fire” from 1987 is one of the best-selling records of the Psychobilly scene.

In the early 90ies, after Pip had moved to the US, it seemed GUANA BATZ wanted to call it a day. But the guys came back. In October 1995 they blasted away the “2nd Wildcat Weekend” in Berlin. From this time on they have come over Europe once a year and played a lot of tours and festivals all over the world.
In 2017 they have released their first record in 20 years: Back to the Jungle (LP) and the single “Burning up” Both very successful.

Always a blast for your concert. Powerful stage performance, oldschool but also modern sound.
