about

The Temple Of The Goddess EP by Todd Parker and The Witches contains one brand new track, "Temple Of The Goddess" written and recorded in 2011 specifically for the nation's premier psychedelic voyager/radio host, Valis and his "Trip Inside This House" blog's annual summer solstice spectacular compilation and for airplay on his weekly psych radio show Trip Inside This House on KDHX 88.1, St. Louis.

Rounding out the EP are 3 previously unreleased bonus tracks recorded in the hot Manhattan summer of 1991 by the then-Tadpoles, Todd Parker and Michael Audino. These 3 tracks - High Flier, Trips And Visits and Superwhip - were recorded in 24-track studios during the same sessions that produced "Old Dirty Mushrooms" which was later released on Tadpoles' 1996 album, "Far Out." The tracks were shelved as the Tadpoles added additional members and began work on their first official CD, "He Fell Into The Sky."

The 3 tunes were subsequently remixed and Parker added new vocals to High Flier in 2009 for this special revisit to summers' past.

Track Name: Temple Of The Goddess
You want to trip inside this house
C'mon and tear the inside out
Don't wanna be like everyone
Its up to you to find the sun

You want to trip inside this house
C'mon and tear the inside out
Don't wanna be like everyone
Its up to you to find the sun

Don't want to trip inside this house
And purify the inside out
Don't wanna be like everyone
Search for stars but find the sun

Don't want to trip inside this house
And purify the inside out
Don't wanna be like everyone
Search for stars but find the sun

In the temple you dream away
Falling water we begin to pray
From the left eye Amaterasu waves
She is shining from the darkest caves

You want to trip inside this house
C'mon and tear the inside out
Don't wanna be like everyone
Its up to you to find the sun

Find the sun
You gotta find the sun
Find the sun

Track Name: High Flier (1991 Tadpoles Demo)
Once I saw a cat fall down
All the way down to the ground
It rose to climb the building side
The boat pulled out
An old man cried

Full moon sound will fill your ears
The boat sails on
And disappears

Track Name: Trips And Visits (1991 Tadpoles Demo)
I hear you scream
you dream obscene
taking these trips and visits and the fear is gone
i'll visit your mother
i'll visit your brother
but i won't visit you at the funny farm
i hear you scream
lets go over
next to my place
taking these trips and visits then the fear is gone
come on along now
and bring your dolls
taking these trips and visits then the fear is gone
i'll visit your mother
i'll visit your brother
but i won't visit you at the funny farm
i hear you scream

Track Name: Superwhip (1991 Tadpoles Demo)
discover your mind's eye
rip the window blind
pull the shade
and let the stars shine in
beats like the sweating sun
beating on the wicked drum
your eyes your face your hands your mouth
crinkle up on the cereal box

superwhip

leave your house
open the car door
alison gets hit by the silver ball
that's just flown out of your mouth
she's down for good
kids gather around
call the clown
its time to play

superwhip

ride your bike
pull the sled
back up on the hill again
when noone's looking
noone's around
put it on the ground
and slide back down

superwhip
