Biography

Leeds, United Kingdom

The Civil Service is a Leeds-based band that loves pop music as much as it loves sheets of noise, and believes that the combination of the two yields something far better. Lyrical content tends to avoid the usual subject matter and seeks to educate as well as entertain. Gigs are loud, haphazard and prone to equipment failure. They like to think that they sound like the Fall covering Godspeed You! Black Emperor.

Their first single Better Than You/The Wolf-Mayor of Leeds is a beautiful handmade affair, each featuring unique covermounted photographs and containing a page torn (despite grave reservations) from a book by an embittered 1950’s ex-Civil Servant. The Civil Service understands cous-cous and operates a revolving door policy on bassists.
