"It's like we're all kids again, back in the basement and just playing rock songs. It's the reason we picked up the instruments in the first place. It's always been about rock 'n' roll and now we're all doing it again." -Justice Naczycz (lead voc./guitar- Secret Service)
For those of you that grew up with basement dreams of being Phil Lynott, or garage dreams of having as much fun as The Ramones or making as much great, chaotic noise as the MC5 the debut album from the Secret Service is coming to join you in an amazing rocket flight to the promised land!! Harmonies! Power chords! Insane solos! Thunderous drums and bass!! This is a monkey on sugar's wet dream!
"Although it's only March, the self-released The Service Is Spectacular already has my vote for album of the year. Recorded at Jim Dickinson's Zebra Ranch Studio with Kevin Houston engineering (overdubs were done with Pete Matthews at Ardent) and mixed at Ardent by Jeff Powell, the record boasts sly songwriting, first-class musicianship, and crisp production by Steve Selvidge. Songs like "Cold Sparkles," "Good Love and a Heart Attack," and "Milkshake," which the group hijacked from Chicago rockers MOTO, sound as timeless as "The Boys Are Back in Town" or "Eighteen."" -Andria Lisle (Memphis Flyer)
