After Tea - National Disaster (1968) Netherlands


After Tea, from The Hague, was formed when keyboardist Hans van Eijck left the Tee-Set. He was joined by Ray Fenwick and Polle Eduard.
After Tea’s trademark was a poppy flower power sound.
Just after the band’s debut album “ National Disaster” was released van Eijck returned to the Tee-Set and Ray Fenwick returned to England to join the Spencer Davis group, replacing Steve Winwood. He was replaced by Ferry Lever.
Drummer Martin Hahe left the band and was replaced by Pierre van der Linden (later drummer of Focus) and later on by Ilja Gort.
The album “ National Disaster” was released in Germany as “ Bubblegum Beat Party”.
Keyboardist Uly Grun (ex-Boots) joined the band for the album “ Joint House Blues”. The sound moved towards progressive hard rock. The commercial success stopped from that moment and soon the band broke up.
