Biography

There are two bands named Mad Tea-Party

1. A japanese post-punk band who released a 7” single on Osaka-based Vanity Records in 1980 and a track on the 沫 Foam compilation in 1981.

2. Mad Tea Party brews up rock ‘n’ roll, retro-pop and honky tonk to create a fresh and intoxicating sound. “It’s B-52s meets Buddy Holly with a lot more thump.” Musical conspirators Ami Worthen and Jason Krekel serve up an exciting live show to music lovers thirsty for upbeat, original refreshment. Delicious harmonies glide over electrified ukulele, juke-joint guitar, scratchy fiddle and pulsing foot percussion. Catchy songs about love, life, sex and dancing are steeped in raw rockabilly with shreds of doo wop and devilish blues. Drink deep - Mad Tea Party concocts a musical recipe that will make you boogie.

The band’s dynamic show has been catching people’s attention across the country. Metro Santa Cruz described it this way, “More a spectacle than a traditional two-person band, Mad Tea Party consists of vocalist and ukulele strummer Ami Worthen and guitarist, fiddler and drummer Jason Krekel. As Worthen reels out charming and quirky songs with an arch sense of humor, Krekel does double- and triple-duty, creating the illusion of a much bigger band with only two arms and two legs. It’s a sight to behold…but Mad Tea Party’s unique sound is just as worthy of note. A bubbly amalgam of juke-joint blues, pop, tiki exotica and rockabilly, the band has honed an approach that is unique and affecting without being too precious.”

    When I first heard Win-D-Oor I thought I had found the Japanese Young Marble Giants. Then I checked discogs, and they only have 4 songs ;_;

    Man this is awesome. I gotta buy all their stuff now. I listened to previews of their stuff on CD baby and thought they were good, so i bought it. But they did these songs like no justice. Big Top Soda Pop is such an insanely happy album.
