In Memoriam: Junior Senior

Dan Gibson | September 26, 2008 2:45 am

There hasn’t been a lot of great news lately, and today is no exception. Here’s one more piece of lousy news to throw on the fire: The delightful Danish dance-pop duo Junior Senior has called it quits.

The bad news came via Junior Senior’s MySpace page. But even in announcing their breakup, Jesper “Junior” Mortensen and Jeppe “Senior” Laursen brought their fans–and the world–joy.

We know it would have been a much juicier story if we hated each other and we split over big egos or something. We even thought of making a fake youtube video of us getting into a fight at a late night party over whether we should call the next album “Jumping Jack Junior” or “Senior Says.” But we don’t promote violence, kids. Just peace and good vibes alright.

We have met so many amazing people around the world, experienced so many cool things, had so many crazy good times… so many we never even dared dream of. We are so happy we made you dance….

But most importantly, though…

Thank u for dancing, coming to our shows, listening to the music, being there and going crazy. We are forever and ever ever grateful and a thank u would never be enough.

YOU made us so happy
