Archaeologists uncover the "lost" second album from C86 band The Servants

Anglophiles rejpice! The “lost” second album from C86 band The Servants is due for a release later this year. The album, Small Time was shelved way back in 1991 with the dissolution of the David Westlake-led band. The demos that were recorded around that time and will be released as part of a two-disc set. In addition to Small Time, a second disc titled Hey Hey We’re the Manqués, featuring demos, alternate takes, and rehearsal versions of songs from their first album, Disinterest will be included in the package. Think of it as two albums worth of jangley guitars for the price of one!

The Servants (and C86 bands in general) seem to be getting their due recently as Captured Tracks released a retrospective compilation Youth Club Disco last year.

Unfortunately, US fans might have to wait a bit. The Small Time reissue is due out in the UK on Cherry Red Records on October 22 with no US release announced as of press time.
