Ming Tea is a band formed and consisting of:
Mike Myers (as Austin Powers, lead vocals),
Susanna Hoffs (as Gillian Shagwell, lead guitar and backing vocals),
Matthew Sweet (as Sid Belvedere, bass and backing vocals),
Stuart Johnson (as Manny Stixman, drums and backing vocals),
Christopher Ward (as Trevor Aigburth, guitar and backing vocals),
They are best known for their song "BBC", which appeared after the ending credits of the movie Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery, as well as the song "Daddy Wasn't There", which Myers' character Austin Powers sings in Austin Powers in Goldmember. Both songs appear in their respective movie soundtracks.
After their collaboration in Ming Tea, Sweet and Hoffs continued to work together, recording three albums. Under the Covers, Vol. 1, Under the Covers, Vol. 2, and Under the Covers, Vol. 3 consist of some of the duos' favorite classic rock songs. In this format they have been known by the pseudonyms Sid and Suzie.
In one reply to a fan's question about Ming Tea in The Bangles Fan Mail page, Susanna Hoffs states that "We got the name Ming Tea from a very obscure 1960's Italian movie starring Ursula Andress." The film in question is The 10th Victim, which features the fictional Ming Tea Company.
