The boys won an unprecedented five days on the run this week on the most-listened to radio show in the UK.
An estimated 8 million listeners daily tuned in to hear the new single Takin’ on the World see off a different band each day. Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Foy Vance (57%), Kathryn Williams (67%), The Go-Betweens (74%) and Elbow (83%) all failed to beat the lads.
Jonathan Ross who hosted the breakfast show all this week called the tune a ‘brilliant pop song’.
The CD includes the fabulous new b-side You Can’t Trust the People as well as lost Amsterdam gem The Time of Your Life.
The specially autographed 7″ vinyl is backed by an acoustic version of new song Career Building a track described by band producer Tony Kiley as ‘a hit single in the waiting when we get the band in’.
