Old Dirty Mushrooms (1991 Demo)

about

Old Dirty Mushrooms started out as a cassette 4-tack tune on our cassette-only 1989 release "Beautiful Music For Ugly Children". We remade it in NYC in 1991 on 24-track tape, but ended up shelving it. This recording was then added on as a hidden bonus track to Tadpoles 2nd official album for Bakery Records, 1996's "Far Out", on the CD edition only. This is the same recording and version that appears on "Far Out" but we've included it here since it belonged with this set of 1991 demos originally and it is now it its rightful place! ~ TP, August 2020

lyrics

Old dirty mushrooms tend to make you feel

A whole lot better than a box of pills (like Gerald mouse on a spinning wheel)

Pull the bright red wagon

Drop by the fire dragon

Feel your body warning

God your hair is burning

Old dirty mushrooms tend to make you feel
Like a bunch of raisins on a banana peel (like Gerald mouse on a spinning wheel)
Pull the bright red wagon

Drop by the fire dragon

Feel your body warning

God your hair is burning
