The Writing's On The Wall

MusicJeff Martin, frontman for Canadian rock trio The Tea Party, has quit the band. Fifteen years after they formed in Windsor, Ontario, The Tea Party are no more.

I never liked The Tea Party. At best they were an okay Doors cover band. This band hogged valuable stage time at way too many Edgefests for my liking. Looking back at their career, my favourite Tea Party song was their first hit "The River" and I don't think I have a second favourite.

A toast to the most overrated Canadian band of the past fifteen years.

You're kidding, The Tea Party is underrated; listen to "Sister Awake," "Save Me," "Walking Wounded," and "The Maker" and you will change your mind. And no, Jeff Martin is not Jim Morrison, and is not trying to be. Whenever I hear the Tea Party, I think why aren't these guys more famous. They combine indian sounds with meaningful, personal lyrics, lyrics that are personal to Jeff. I think he deserves equal status as a Canadian musician to Matthew Good with an edge. Honestly, I feel offended, the aforementioned songs touch my heart.
