about

In early 1989, Tadpoles (then a duo of Mike Audino and me) produced a cassette-only album
on our 4-track
called
Beautiful Music For Ugly Children
and gave it out to a few friends before promptly
moving on to the next batch of songs.

That's just how things we done in the days
before MP3, the web and file sharing.

In the 90's, two of those songs,
Judas, This is Jesus and Old Dirty Mushrooms
appeared in freshly recorded form as bonus tracks on
Tadpoles "Far Out" album and the "Know Your Ghosts EP"

And that was the last Beautiful Music we ever played
for Ugly Children.

Until Now.

A funny thing happened on the way to recording
an album of
brand new Witches material.

We got sidetracked.

Mike always said BMFUC was his
favorite Tadpoles album.

He wanted to give it another chance.

So we did.

And now Beautiful Music for Ugly Children
has turned into
Evil Bliss.

What is old is new. What is new is old.

We had a lot of fun remaking this.

Hope you have fun listening to it.

What is made is how it is.

And that,

is all.

Track Name: Old Dirty Mushrooms
old dirty mushrooms
tend to make you feel
a whole lot better

drop by the fire dragon
feel your body warning
god your hair is burning

like a bunch of raisins
on a banana peel

old dirty mushrooms
tend to make you feel
a whole lot better
than a box of pills

Track Name: King Of The Castle
i'm the king of the castle
master of all i survey
look directly into my eyes
and i might just let you stay

king of the castle

waiting in my little world
where all is made of gold
look directly into my eyes
watch yourself explode

king of the castle
Track Name: Scrotumhead
you live in a past that you never had
anything new you think is bad
i can't understand why you want to be so sad
you think you're happy
perhaps i've gone mad

hey pass me a light, you poor old man
what is wrong with doing the best i can
maybe its something you'll never understand
there's more to life
than being a poor old man

collecting things of old
just to fill you in
without them would you be
just empty headed and thin
poor poor old man
can't you understand
that suns and moons pass by
as fast as they can
Track Name: What Is Made Is How It Is
all i know is what i see
that is all for you and me
its something thats deep inside
something that doesn't hide

is how it is
how it is
and that is all there is
what else would there be
what else could there be

you can really see
and i know its free
it can't be there
if it wasn't there to start with
can it

there are some things
that you can't always see from the outside
but some you think you can
but you really can't

its not what you think
for if it is
what if it is
not really there at all

then where is it
where are you
if you can't go there
then you are
nowhere
Track Name: Kick Yourself In The Head
kick yourself in the head
one more time
you'll be dead

get up out of bed
kick yourself in the head
listen to what i said
kick yourself in the head

if all the world's problems
could be solved by a
single thought
if all the world's troubles
were something that if
we had not
kicked ourselves in the head
that one last time
we wouldn't be dead

and we're kicking, kicking

kick yourself in the head
one more time
you'll be dead
Track Name: Judas, This Is Jesus
Judas, this is Jesus
Its raining silver
help me
Track Name: He Fell Into The Sky
i always had an old friend
swerving around the twisted bend
glistening twinkle in his eyes
feeling like he was going to die

way back then nothing wrong
left the hometown it won't be long
madness walking down the street
shining at everything he meets

it all seems to go so fast
nothing ever really lasts
its too late we're leaving time
an old friend has gone behind

again again again and again
writes a letter to brother ben
it never gets there
its always late
no one left to hate

woke up last night
felt quite good
the big band played
like they knew they could
songs that sounded like scarlett's cry
my old friend fell into the sky
Track Name: Antman Beats On
Instrumental - Drum Solo
