Home Service was also born out of a desire to work with a brass section, an idea which emerged when trumpet player Howard Evans joined the Albion Band to work on Bill Bryden’s original production of “Lark Rise” at the National Theatre. During its relatively short life in the mid-eighties, Home Service produced three albums (all still available from Fledg’ling Records), headlined at major festivals including Cambridge, Cropredy and Dranouter. They toured extensively, but were probably seen and heard by the greatest number of people when they provided music for the National Theatre’s highly acclaimed production of “The Mysteries”. This epic trilogy adapted by poet Tony Harrison, ran for many years at the National and Lyceum Theatres, was filmed for television and reprised for the Millennium Celebrations.

“Jonathan Davie & Michael Gregory lay down an immovable foundation; the brass section play like the Devil’s own pit band; Graeme Taylor’s guitar can strip paint, Steve King conjures a whole orchestra from his keyboards, and John Tams’s vocal smoulders and roars” ***** R2

“Moving Anglo roots rocks forward by light years…keen spokesmen for a generation of the dispossessed…expect this to be in the ‘Best of 2011’…make it the soundtrack of your summer” fRoots

“The very mightiest of sounds that could grace any stage, with nothing remotely comparable in the folk-rock arena in terms of maximum visceral and emotional impact…a totally essential purchase: no argument” Net Rhythms

“Blistering…truculent folk-rock” ***** The Financial Times
