From the Archives: Junior Senior even hotter in the UK (by 21. February 2003)

02.26.2003 Monday 24th of February saw the long awaited release of “Move Your Feet” in the UK. And the band seem to get a lot of attention right now. The single is “Single of the Week” in NME, and there is a big feature in The Face. Besides that MYF recently peaked at no. 1 on both the Up Front Club Chart (the official UK club chart) and the Pre-Release Airplay Top 20. The crunchy tune is in hotter-than-hell rotation on radio stations all over UK, including the big’uns such as Radio 1, XFM and Kiss 100 FM – and the track is currently the 10th most played song on British radio! This week also includes performances and interviews at the Graham Norton show (Channel 4), Jo Whiley’s Live Lounge (Radio 1)(see some cool pictures from this session here), and XFM’s Zoe Ball session. Not to forget features in this month’s Face, Gay Times, Attitude and Q.

The reviews are not bad either: Called “Possibly 2003’s first perfect pop single” with a 10 out of 10 rating at’t say 10 what, but hopefully not punches on the head), ratet 5 out of 5 at (“Put this on and watch the ladies flock around you!”), and a 4 star review of the album, D-D-Don’t Don’t Stop The Beat, at and

In the US, David Fricke, editor of US magazine Rolling Stone, gives the band thumbs up in the recent issue of the magazine. “The songs are all about motion (“Go Junior, Go Senior,” “Rhythm Bandits,” “Shake Your Coconuts”), and they all deliver. The dead-ringer-Michael Jackson aria in “Move Your Feet” is really Thomas Troelsen of the Danish band Superheroes. It’s so good, Jacko will wish he’d been there.”. Read it all here.
