Selective Service EP (November 2010)

You Best Believe EP (April 2011)



Being hard to pigeon hole is something that this band thrive upon. For the melting pot of funk, reggae, blues and down right rock'n'roll, is what differentiates Selective Service from the rest of the pack.

Forming in 2009, the band spent their first 18 months together pounding the highways of their native Scotland, taking in new followers at every port of call. They supported some great acts along the way, including Sons & Daughters, The Jim Jones Revue, The Heavy and The Hours, earning well deserved plaudits from all of these peers. 2009 ended with a triumphant set at George Square during Winterfest to over a thousand hardy souls braving the freezing temperatures.

2010 saw the touring schedule worked to the max, with the band playing over 100 gigs and cutting their first disc at La Chunky Studios. Release in November 2010, the eponymous debut EP has all but sold out (physically speaking) and the launch night was so over subscribed that between 30 and 40 disappointed fans could not get in to the event.

Not the sort of band to rest on their laurels, Selective Service ended 2010 by re-entering the studio equipped with new cuts which had been road tested on the previous tour. This next effort, entitled You Best Believe will be released in April 2011. The band have just shot their 2nd music video and a host of promotional activities are planned, most notably an instore performance at Pretty Green's Glasgow boutique. Kasabian tour DJ Dan Martin is also booked to play at the EP launch night, with Serge Pizzorno having given his personal approval.
