rough notes

The Tea Party, The Messenger (1999)

leave a comment »

Artist: The Tea Party (Daniel Lanois, composer)
Title: The Messenger
Artist Website: Tea Party.com, Daniel Lanois
Date: 1999
Location: Windsor, ON; Montréal.
Rating: Meh.

[Editorial notes: Does anyone else recall the incredibly ridiculous furor over whether or not we should have liked The Tea Party because of Jeff Martin’s resemblance to Jim Morrison and musical similarities to Jimmy Page? By this time Martin began sporting that dirty moustache, which made him look more like the operator than anyone else. Dude still rocked the house, though. The CRTC Apologizes for the moustache, as well as for the awful first 10 seconds of the video, which is nothing more than an egregious advert for a website. Even though we here only re-list content like the rest of them, we would never do some bullshit tactic like that.]
