Secret Service
Secret Service
Justice Naczycz met Steve Selvidge when he booked Steve and
his dad (legendary Memphis folk singer Sid Selvidge) to play a
show in the round, sometime around the year 2000. From that
show together, a partnership began that first produced Justice’s
solo record, “Water for the Withered Root.” After finishing the
solo album there was an obvious disconnect between the album
and the live show. Five years later, these difficulties combined with
Justice writing some all out rock songs convinced Steve and
Justice to change the name and the focus of the band. Soon
thereafter came “The Service is Spectacular” by Secret Service.
Having been joined by John Argroves and Mark Stuart (one
of Memphis’s most sought after rhythm sections, having just left
grammy winner Alvin “Youngblood” Hart’s band), Secret Service
was born. With one of Memphis’s most explosive rock shows
and the album being chosen Album of the year in 2007 by
the Memphis Flyer, the short life of the band saw a lot of success
playing to packed houses and going on tour with the Hold Steady.
But the band proved impossible to hold together and broke up in
2009 due to touring commitments with other acts.
The band played their first show in 5 years at the Levitt Shell
in the fall of 2016, after which Misspent Records’ John Miller
approached the band about recording 2 previously unreleased
tracks for a 7”. Shortly thereafter, Secret Service went into the
Hi/Low Studios and recorded a pair of blistering jams with sonic
aces Pete Matthews and Toby Vest. That the band had been starting
to evolve even further before they broke up is evident from the
first downbeat through the last insistent shout.
Secret Service will release Teenage Mustache b/w Outsiders with
a show at Minglewood Hall’s 1884 Lounge in Memphis on July
21st. They will be joined by another Misspent Records act,
James and the Ultrasounds.
