As promised, the letter J has been bookended by a pair of Danish pop duos.
There is so much to love about this CD. The cover perfectly captures the content, which is all neon and bubbly, and inducing of much arm-waving and other silly gestures.
Sitting around at home today reading through academic articles has not been the ideal setting for this collection of tracks. This is a Saturday night album (or whatever evening it is that the kids do their thang these days).
It is helium-like in its upbeat-ness. The songs have that breathy, rushed jolliness that so few bands manage (think B-52s), over a great set of rhythms.
The two lads obviously have very short attention spans, as they jump from one floor filler to another, chanting choruses that anyone/everyone will yell along to (while ignoring that glam poppers like Sherbet and Bay City Rollers were onto this schtick in the mid-70s).
Somehow, the duo do find time within the 32-or-so minutes to manage to produce a hilarious Dylan meets Beach Boys meets Oasis hybrid on Shake Me Baby.
In the end everyone bought this album for Move Your Feet and it was worth every cent:
