Inspired after a fun night watching Austin Powers get shagadelic, this impromptu gathering of sounds fell into place with associative (but disparate) assistance from Liars, Arthur Alexander, Elvis Costello & The Impostors, Elvis Costello & Burt Bacharach, Ming Tea, The Who, The Len Price 3, The Misunderstood, Bill Bruce, Supersempftt, Ministry, Deep Purple, The Nomads, Alex Chilton and The Seeds. Groovy baby!

* Ming Tea was Austin Powers band, which he sang for when he was not being an international man of mystery. The line-up included Mike Myers, Sussana Hoffs, Mathew Sweet, Stuart Johnson, Chis Ward and a great blonde go-go dancer. Their name was lifted from an old Italian sci-fi movie The 1oth Victim - The Ming Tea Company was Ursulla Andress' character's corporate sponsor. The band actually played out a number of times including an infamous gig at The Viper Room in L.A.

Here's another Ming Tea classic Daddy Wasn't There!
