Japanese Version featuring Two Bonus Tracks
Described rather astutely as "The Laurel and Hardy of Danish electro pop," Junior Senior's "D-D-Don't Stop the Beat" is the coolest thing to come out of Denmark since Lego. Already huge in Scandinavia, the JS sound (think the Cramps, the B-52's, and Wham! in some gloriously incongruous pile-up) can't fail to paint a smile on the hardest of cynic's face. Fittingly their debut is full of perversely mad pop songs, referenced to the hilt and none too complex in production; for sheer goofy charm and jump-around madness, it's hard to beat. "Chicks and Dicks," an ode to misguided sexual attention, rocks along to 60s beach guitar and surfin' harmonies, while "Move Your Feet" is the sound of Fatboy Slim body-popping to "Club Tropicana." At turns clever, irreverent, and maddeningly catchy, this is a record from Denmark that other countries will want to listen to. --Paul Tierney
Top Customer Reviews
They were formed in 1998 by Jesper Mortensen (Junior) and indie rock god, Jeppe Laursen (Senior). The band originally hails from Jutland, on Denmark's western peninsula. The record was launched in 2002 by Danish indie label Crunchy Frog (also home of the Raveonettes). Junior Senior has quickly built a fanbase on both sides of the Atlantic. They wowed them at CMJ last year too. Blending pop, rock, Motown, new wave, and hiphop influences with dance beat, their sound is undeniably infectious and their live show completely a blast. Even local Danes have been coming. They did a small tour and a few TV show in August 2003. I spoke to them right after they did the Tom Green Show. They were unpretentious and excited to talk about their music. This year they have moved to LA and have been working on their next album. We are all looking forward to that.
Give me a break.
First of all, there are no sware words. Even the D-word has been bleeped out in track 4, "Chicks and ****s". Second of all, this kind of music is harmless! It's pure fun to listen to! I love this album so much (save the last 2 "bonus" tracks, the movie version of "Shake Your Coconuts" and a live version of "Move Your Feet"). Tracks that definately stand out are "Move Your Feet", "Shake Your Coconuts", "Rhythm Bandits", and "White Trash" (my favorite).
Junior Senior (two Danish guys, one small strait guy, and the other is the complete opposite) are amazing. If you want fun, and you don't mind different genres of music, definately buy this album. It's the first CD in which I can say that every single song is incredible (save the last two "bonus" tracks)
Seriously now, Junior Senior finally provide something fresh and new to an incestuous music scene that seems content with hyping syrupy, blatantly unoriginal indie bands, churning out countless watered down punkers, horridly under-talented garage bands (who all end up sounding like a poor mans Velvet Underground) and reviving defunct 80's musical styles that should have stayed in that miserable decade. Somehow though, Junior Senior manages to throw them all together, add a pinch of electronic psychedelica, (think: the last minute of any song by The Music) sugary 60's pop music, (think: the beach boys) disco breaking grooves and huzzah, you've got a wacky melange of hand claps, sequenced drum beats, catchy riffs and hilariously simple lyrics. D-D-Don't Stop barrels forth like a funky 32-minute long avalanche of zany dance floor mayhem.
