ACHTERGRONDINFO *** BACKGROUND INFORMATION
CLIVE ROBIN SARSTEDT & THE DEEJAYS
Clive Robin Sarstedt (° 1944) recorded under a number of names, such as Clive Sands, Wes Sands, Clive Sarstedt and Robin Sarstedt. He was only sixteen when Joe Meek produced his first record. At that time, Sarstedt had Jeff Beck and Richie Blackmore backing him.
In the mid-sixties, he joined a British Group that was huge in Sweden: The Deejays. Later, he would secure a contract with America major RCA and release three solo albums.
As Robin Sarstedt, he would eventually hit the top of the charts with ‘My Resistance Is Low’ in the seventies. His fame would continue after that in Continental Europe.
As Robin Sarstedt, he released a solo album on Angel Air Records in 2016. He lives in Alemeria, Spain, where he still performs and is now working on a new album.
His brother Richard aka Eden Kane was a huge star in pre-Beatles Britain. His brother Peter is a world-famous song-writer who scored world-wide with ‘Where Do You Go To My Lovely?’. The Sarstedts are in the Guiness Book Of Records as the only three brothers to make the top of the charts in their own right.
A retrospective album of the Deejays was released by RPM https://www.cherryred.co.uk/product/the-deejays-coming-on-strong-the-best-of-the-deejays/
RADIO 68 spoke to Robin Sarstedt and you can hear snippets of this EXCLUSIVE RADIO 68 INTERVIEW in this show.
THE TEA COMPANY
“From New York City, The Tea Company was one of the early birds on the US psychedelic underground scene with an LP on the market originally released on Smash Records in 1968. This album stands for the evolution of the 45 rpm psych-garage bands to the upcoming LP-generation with extended improvisation parts. Tea Company evolved from the Naturals which were founded in 1963 and played the big ballrooms supporting Mamas and the Papas, The Lovin´ Spoonful, Bob Dylan, Ritchie Havens and many others. The band describes themselves as “an assemblage of possessed rock performers, retinue preparing the unusual, alternating with the roots of soul whose purpose is to cause sensation, due to stimulation of the auditory centers of the brain”.
They became famous in the US for spectacular live shows and lyrical hippie statements. The music is inspired by the Beatles, using exactly the same equipment as them. Tea Company played with lots of freaked-out-echo-organ/-guitar noises on a 12 string Rickenbacker and various stereo madness reminds strongly of Syd Barrett´s spirit but more driven by hard hittin´ drums. Being buddies of Vanilla Fudge and inspired by them, the Tea Company also did an outrageous 9 min. version of “You keep me hangin´ on” which is celebrated among 60s collectors as a true milestone. The album is a mind-blowing production. The CD includes also 4 bonus tracks of The Naturals).

Singer, composer but most of all keyboardist ZOOT MONEY, real name George Bruno, is all over the show. We have a look at his BIG ROLL BAND, which played steamy soul and R&B. Zoot & Co. took over from Georgie Fame at The Flamingo as the resident band. They releases several singles and albums, but never broke through commercially. A fine 4 cd-box titled Big Time Operator includes about everything you need to know about this period.
Money folded the band and went psych as DANTALION’s CHARIOT – to no avail. He and his mate Andy Somers (later of The Police) then accepted ERIC BURDON’s offer to join THE NEW ANIMALS in California. They can be heard on two albums: ‘Love Is’ and ‘Everyone Of Us’ (1968). Zoot Money recorded several solo albums and is still playing live. Andy Somers joined Soft Machine, then The Police.
