THE END OF THE BAND
As band members grew older and chemical preferences shifted from alcohol and speed to marihuana, interest in reggae music infected the band. Hans had left the building and Rene joined again, this time as the drummer, while Erik moved to keyboards. For a short while they tried to be a punk and reggae band at the same time, but soon punk was dropped.
After a while the band disintegrated. Stan, Emile and Erik teamed up with the remains of another broken-up band that played more standard repertoire, but Mornington Crescent had ceased to be. There was one last gig when the former members threw a party to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the birth of the band in 1991.
