"When first you hear Alright, Junior, you may be intangibly tossed into a back in da day vortex, liberating early 90s grunge rock nâ roll, lathered in crippling Smashing Pumpkins riffs and caliginous Alice in Chains vocals. They have endurance, thereâs no doubt in that, extolling their engendered appreciation for the last âgoodâ era of rock music with all the spasmodic moves of an undomesticated bronco." (Origivation Spring 2007)
When you talk to the members of Alright Junior, you realize that with music, sometimes timing is everything. âYou get the feeling with this bandâ, says front man Jace Miller, âthat something special is happeningâ Formed by members of 3 former Philadelphia Alternative Rock acts , Alright Junior began in the spring of 2006, when drummer Mike Fraclose and guitarist Steve DeMeo (formerly of The Rebel Saints) began writing and rehearsing with Miller (formerly of Juliet). With the later addition of bassist Greg Jovanovich (formerly of Pennant Race), and with new material already in tow, Alright Junior burst onto the Philly scene, playing shows in familiar venues to surprisingly large crowds. Says DeMeo, âfor a band that at the time was only 2 months old, we couldnât believe the response from the first few shows.â âWe realized that our old fan bases from the other bands were coming out as one in support of the new project.â, says Miller. For promoters, writers, radio personalities and fans alike in the Philadelphia area, it became obvious from the start that Alright Junior wasnât truly a ânewâ act, but rather local music vets who were hell bent on stirring up the local music scene.
Early after their inception, Alright Junior caught the attention of producer Joe Mattis of label Slugfest records, when Mattis saw the band open for national headliner Sponge. Mattis was impressed by the raw talent, stage presence and young energy of the new band. Work began on an LP engineered by Kevin Williams at Slugfestâs recording studio in Spring City, PA. Released in February 2007 release, Alright Juniorâs debut LP (availible on iTunes) featured 10 songs showcasing the bandâs unique alternative rock sound. Tracks such as "Mouths of a Herd", "Sinner of the State", and "Up In Flames" quickly received airplay on Philadelphiaâs 93.3 WMMR and Delawareâs 93.7 WSTW.
Alright Junior has been on regular specialty rotation on Radio 104.5 since 2008. In addition, the band was also featured on Philadelphiaâs Radio 104.5 live at five in studio session, heard live at afternoon drive time, performing the track the station had been spinning "Mouths of a Herd" from their first album.
Rumors of a âship of foolsâ captained by legendary Tim Gilles (Taking Back Sunday, Thursday, Misfits, Local H, Bouncing Souls) led the band in February 2009 to Big Blue Meenie studios in Jersey City, NJ. Alright Junior crafted a 5 song EP built to lead them onward.
Chosen to be released Independently in 2009, âOur Temporary Everythingâ represents a band comfortable in its own skin, looking forward rather then repeating patterns and molds of rockâs recent mundane history.
This newest offering stands to take Alright Junior even farther in the future. The band decided to return to the analog universe at Big Blue Meenie to craft 3 new tracks that show a band with a more focused and direct sound. The first track "Burn" was first heard in acoustic form as part of Radio1045's Live at 5 Studio Session but this disc brings out Burn at its most bullish; a defiant, in your face track that combines melody with a vicious alt rock sucker punch. Table for Two ups the ante, blasting the listener with beautifully overdubbed analog guitar that Big Blue Meenie is famous for. The disc finishes with Norma Jeane, a track on which we hear vocalist Jace Miller essentially by playing himself, not something heard before on previous Alright Junior records. Of course, the rest of the band eventually joins in, to deafening effect.
