In so many ways, the version of psychedelic rock being expressed by the Butthole Surfers of the mid to late 80's was one of the prime catalysts for the Tadpoles forming as a live group. This version from the early 90's got into Butthole Surfers pathos territory, but one cannot out-Butthole the Butthole Surfers, so Tadpoles ended up pulling back a bit as time went on, mixing in the headier psych of bands like Spacemen 3 to the more aggressive sounds in hopes of creating our own take on the genre.
