The end of the road
Current mood: optimistic
Category: Life

O.K. Listen up. its time for some sad news....The Servant are splitting up! there will be no new Servant albums. after ten years we have reached the end of our road together and its time to move on to pastures new. Dan will be pursuing his musical career in some form or another (look for him on myspace or facebook), the rest of us will disappear back into obscurity i would imagine. So i would just like to say this...Thanks to all of you lot for showing us such love and support over the years and for making being in the band such an unforgettable experience. its a bit of a shame we couldnt play more over here in England or that you lot couldnt all come out to France or Italy to see thousands of people singing along to Orhestra, Liquefy, How to Destroy and all the rest. What a fucking blast! still, the last couple of Hoxton shows where as rocking as anyone could wish for I think. I will be keeping this site going for a little while but my presence will be getting less and less a the weeks go by. i have got so used to doing this that its gonna be hard to cut the cord i think. I hope you all have long and happy lives, you've certainly made mine worth living for the last few years. Cheers to you all, XXX Matt Fisher. Rock Star. (Retired). P.S. if i ever get round to making a solo album i'll let you know, o.k.


And Dan:

Hello

Varying stories have begun to circulate on the internet and radio so I thought maybe someone from within the band should say something to you guys about recent events. We have decided to take an indefinite break from being "The Servant".

We have been together now for a long (long!) time and basically fancy doing some new things. We would like to thank you all for all the great support you have given us. This is a sad but exciting moment.

Personally, I am going to be coming back very soon with some new music, which I will let you know about shortly. Well, not sure what else to say about it really, hope this isnt too upsetting for any of you....

Take care for now

Dan Black x x x



How do you guys feel about this?

I feel awful , terrible, i'm going to burn my little shrine that i keep of them in my bedroom right now.

well, ok, I feel disappointed and sad that i missed my opportunity to see them when i was in Paris, and now i will never get to hear them play any of their lovely songs, some of which are quite possibly my favourite songs from anyone anywhere. And of course this is not important, but i reckon it's a bit sad, since a band with such originality and talent as the Servant could have conquered THE WORLD. Every person i have introduced their music to has loved it. It's seems almost crazy that they should throw in the towel now when they are at their peak.

Ah well,
It was awesome while it lasted

PS:i'll keep you guys posted on any band-related news.

I wish that whoever started this community had named it "theservantuk" instead. Plus having two communities makes it confusing.

I heard that Dan Black's birthday is Nov 17th. Anyone care to confirm this?

For all of you deprived of the Servant's brilliant Music.
All of their songs have been posted on Sound and Vision on the Servant's official (and updated site)
(well, nearly all, i can't find In a Century's time on it, or Brand new lover, which you can find here on radio club blog)

I love clicking the links and seeing the band throwing crumpled pieces of paper towards the screen!

Hey!

So, this is the only The Servant community to find here at LJ... I didn't expect something like that, but thankfully there is at least one.
However, here I am, a young man, want to introduce myself. :P
The Servant is my favouite band for now, Dan got this crazy voice. Have you ever heard him live? I got an acoustic version of body and it's kind of disgusting, just genial. Hope, they come to back to Germany next tour. I'll be there!

Excuse me for my maybe weird English, I'm learning. =)

Hey! I joined about 3 days ago...I think. 

Anyway, I can't believe that this is the ONLY community for The Servants, and that it's so small! I was expecting to see a big ol' list! 

That's sad. Very sad. 

Oh, and I'm trying to get my friend into listening to them, but you tube isn't working for her, nor is that website I saw listed here to listen and buy the CD. 

[Btw, there's not any copies available at the present time. How sad for me! I want it!]

Oh yeah, so the point of this post was to express my deep sorrow for this small little community, and I hope to see it grow. AND, does anyone know of another place to listen to their songs? I don't have a downloading music program so I can't download them, and  really want my friend to listen to them. Any Help will be greatly appreciated. Yes.

Good night!
