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 7 - Friends

Volume 7 of The Farm Tapes features a song sequence from 1988 which was called “Friends” (She’s A Shiny Doll/Bill Su-Icide/One Or The Other/Friends). The master tape for this set had previously had Mozart on it, so remnants of Mozart nicely mingle and make happy accidents with the tunes taped over it. Friends and One Or The Other were rehearsed and performed a few times in early 1990 NYC incarnations of Tadpoles, but were eventually shelved and were never re-recorded. Electric Love Child, also recorded in 1988, was shelved until 2017 when it was re-recorded and released by Todd Parker and The Witches. The rest of this volume comprises songs from Todd Parker’s original “Witch” project from 1993-1994. Originally titled “Wake and Bake”, Dusty Baker was eventually re-recorded and released on the last official Tadpoles studio album, “Whirlaway” in 1999.
