the servantsAnother recent discovery that Captured Tracks got to first = The Servants, a band that were part of the infamous NME C86 compilation and certainly owe a great debt to The Smiths and other guitar based groups of the era. Strangely enough the singer reminds me more of Stephen Malkmus than Morrissey but either way this is a nice collection of songs with more than a few gems like “Afterglow” and “Rings on Her Fingers”.  Stuart Murdoch from Belle & Sebastian was a huge fan and their influence is easy to trace back on everything from sound to cover art.
