Band sign off with gig at the Relentless Garage in London

The Holloways reunite with ex-members for final show before splitting
The Holloways reunited with guests including their ex-guitarist Rob Skipper for their farewell gig at the Relentless Garage in London last night (Monday 23) – a gig that saw emotional scenes and a stage invasion.

In a show which saw original members Alfie Jackson and Bryn Fowler play with an array of current and ex-members of the band, The Holloways tore through a 70-minute set featuring their much-released single 'Generator', 'Two Left Feet' and 'Dancefloor'. The gig ended with a chaotic stage invasion during 'Fuck Ups'

"It was emotional," Jackson told NME, "I loved it. I loved how much love there was from the crowd. There were people there tonight who represented a thousand people."

"Good vibes!" added Skipper. "We had a little jam the other day to try to work out songs to play tonight and we ended up playing all these shitty, random b-sides. How could I miss it really, it's the last dance."

The Holloways released two albums in their career, 2006's 'So This Is Great Britain?' and 2009's 'No Smoke, No Mirrors'. "As many of you will know we have had a few problems through the years," they declared when they announced they were splitting earlier this year. "Fires burning all our stuff down. Labels going bust, friends leaving the band to name but a few. This has left us deciding to call it a day."

The Holloways played:

'Public Service Broadcast'
'So This Is Great Britain'
'Happiness And Penniless'
'Most Lonely Face'
'Sinners And Winners'
'Knock Me Down'
'Jukebox Sunshine'
'Reinvent Myself'
'London Town'
'Two Left Feet'
'Fuck Ups'
