about

The Farm Tapes Series features demos, finished recordings and sonic experiments recorded between 1985 and 2001 by Todd Parker (and whoever else was participating) with the only requirement being that the recordings were produced on a cassette 4-track machine. A Fostex X-15 was used until 1989 and from then on a Yamaha MT3X was the primary recorder.

Volume 6 - The Old Times

Volume 6 of the Farm Tapes goes back to some of the earliest material dubbed “Tadpoles” by Todd Parker. Draw a Picture from 1986 is one of the first songs to hint at the psychedelic direction the project would take and the rest of the songs in this volume, mostly recorded in 1987, begin to explore the genre. The cover of “With You” was recorded in 1988 after a particularly mind-blowing performance by the young Flaming Lips in a small club in Champaign, IL.
