The Tea Party were an underrated band who effectively combined blues rock with progressive rock and mixed it with Indian & Middle Eastern musical influences. Between 1991 & 2005 the three Canadians released 8 albums, including a live recording, and created a solid fan base in Canada & Australia (where they were quite popular).
Their style of music has the unique privilege of being labelled as ‘Moroccan Roll’ and they certainly were quite different from the rest of the bands. Although now effectively split up due to singer / guitarist Jeff Martin chosing to pursue a solo career & then his Ireland based band The Armada in a slightly different musical direction, the band still has it’s fans and bassist Stuart Chatwood & drummer Jeff Burrows are still together as a song writing team called the Art OF Decay. But here’s a live recording of Walking Wounded, one of their most atmospheric songs.
