New single from The Senior Service (Graham Day/Prisoners etc) + launch gig!

Here’s a heads up on this 7″ single we have due for release on January 8th.


(Ltd. 7″)

Cat No: DAMGOOD447

Format: 7″/Digital

Release Date: 8th January 2016


The Senior Service are the latest band to burst forth from the little clutch of towns known collectively as Medway. However, they are no newcomers (as their name may suggest), for they have been in some of the biggest bands to have come from that area. These bands include –

The Prisoners

The Mighty Caesars

The James Taylor Quartet

The Masonics and

Billy Childish and The Buff Medways.


The band members –

Jon Barker – organ,

Graham Day – guitar,

Darryl Hartley – bass guitar

Wolf Howard – drums and percussion


have been close friends throughout and have always been into film themes and instrumental music.

Amongst their influences are John Barry, Barry Gray, Booker T and the MGs, Ennio Morriconeand The Small Faces.

“We got together to play instrumental covers because I happened to have bought a Hammond organ” says Jon, “but we dropped that idea before we played a note and quickly moved onto our own stuff.”

The recordings, done at Borstal Road Studios (Jon’s house) have an organic feel to them that only close, like-minded friends can achieve, and it feels like the time is just right for a fresh batch of exciting tunes played on antique instruments by young-minded lovers of Sixties instrumentals!

Single launch gig at The Half Moon, Putney!

This is expected to be a sell out so we recommend booking your tickets early. To mark the release of ‘Depth Charge’, the debut single by The Senior Service, there’s to be a launch gig at The Half Moon in Putney.

Advance tickets are available here.
