The best kept secret in music

-Three Imaginary Girls - AstroPop, November 05

"A Most Enjoyable Jaunt"

"A Knack for Harmonies and Hooks"

“Moving from deft power-pop to wavy acoustic grooves, the Seattle group has a knack for harmonies and hooks … their sound harkens back to the Byrds and the Turtles as much as it nods to contemporary pop fauna."
-Jon Sobel - Indie Round-Up, May 05

Feeling a bit camera shy


The origins of Central Services can be traced back 12 years and across the country, to a sunny Connecticut suburb where Jeff and Kevin went to high school. Three bands and a long stint in the Boston music scene later, the two found themselves in Seattle and ready to collaborate on the kind of smart, melodic pop they'd always dreamed of playing.

Luckily, the two met expert drummer Chad and ex-metal guru Damien at a Math and Physics Club houseparty in August of 04, and enlisted the talents of keyboardist Eric Goetz shortly afterwards. Then Chad took off for greener pastures (literally = landscape architect), and Kevin took over as the stand-up (puns) drummer, actually standing up. To top the whole darn thing off, the band convinced Ethan from Math and Physics Club to play the acoustic guitar that had been left so lonely by the wayside.

The band released a 4-song debut EP in December, "We're All Smarter Now", which you can buy at Sonic Boom Records in Seattle and at their shows, and on the web at Amazon.com and CDBaby.com.
