For a band that doesn’t have a label, and has never had a pop single, Army Navy sure has a lot of friends in high places. Frontman Justin Kennedy was in a band with his high school buddy, Ben Gibbard, before Gibbard left to start Death Cab for Cutie. When Army Navy’s drummer left the band before the first album was recorded, Pete Thomas, one of Elvis Costello’s Attractions, picked up the beat for that record. Kennedy, who still holds a day job as a wardrobe stylist, has outfitted everyone from Elton John and Morrissey to Ted Danson and Tom Cruise.
