Saucy Monky Triple A's Most Added

Saucy Monky have had considerable success convincing American radio programmers with their new single 'Disco Ball'

The Hot Press Newsdesk, 09 May 2005

Irish/LA contenders Saucy Monky have got their US campaign off to a flying start with the news that their single 'Disco Ball' was this week's No.1 Most Added record on Triple A Commercial Radio format, in the first week of its US release.

The Saucy Monky single was ahead of the latest releases from Ani di Franco and Oasis, who were at No.2 and No.3 respectively.

Triple A is among the most influential formats in American radio, pitching the band right into the centre of the action where sales and chart positions are concerned. Among the stations that have added Saucy Monky are: WAPS-OHIO; KPRI - San Diego; KRSH- Santa Rosa/San Francisco; KTAO-New Mexico; WRNX - Springfield/Boston; WXRV-Chicago; WEBK-Vermont; KMTN - Wyoming.

An indication of the prestige of the achievement is that the previous week’s No.1 Most Added on Triple A stations was ‘Speed Of Sound’ by Coldplay, the first single from their brand new X & Y album.

Saucy Monky recently signed a deal for the US with 429 Records, the rock imprint of SLG, which sees the band’s album Turbulence being released there, with the full back-up of the Warners marketing and distribution set-up in the States. The album has been re-sequenced since its acclaimed Irish release and ‘Disco Ball’ – which featured on their debut mini-album Celebrity Trash – has been remixed and added.

The band are currently being chased by a number of UK labels with a view to securing the rights to release in Turbulence in Europe.
