Peel was a big fan of the band's 'Turntable Terrorist' E.P., released on the Digital Hardcore label of Atari Teenage Riot in early 1995, although he was less impressed by the name of the German newcomers. On his 14 April 1995 show, he commented:

"This EP is a major favourite at Peel Acres. Sonic Subjunkies - I know it's an awful name, but it's a great record."

Four years later, the DJ played multiple tracks from the 'Molotov Lounge” album, put out on Iris Light. The track 'Do You Even Know Who You Are' subsequently became the band's only Festive Fifty entry.
