"Call this band England's native answer to Australian transplants Go-Betweens; that's a good half of any useful review for newcomers, and a vast compliment." - All Music review of Youth Club Disco
"The Servants (and C86 bands in general) seem to be getting their due recently as Captured Tracks released a retrospective compilation Youth Club Disco last year." - Tiny Mixtapes
