1. Superwhip (Waterfront Version)
This version features the He Fell Into The Sky-era 5-piece Tadpoles, with Mike Audino on drums, Nick Kramer on feedback guitar, David Max on bass and Andrew Jackson on guitar. Recorded this in 1992 at Waterfront Studios in Hoboken and it was our first studio recording with that line-up. Went in, recorded it basically live in the studio...it was a maelstrom. Not sure if the engineers quite knew what to do with us then. The song initially appeared on our 1992 demo cassette, also called "Superwhip." Remixed this song in 1998 with Pete Drivere at Ampreon Recorder in Youngstown, Ohio and that is the mix that appears here.

lyrics

discover your mind's eye
rip the window blind
pull the shade
and let the stars shine in
beats like the sweating sun
beating on the wicked drum
your eyes your face your hands your mouth
crinkle up on the cereal box

superwhip

leave your house
open the car door
alison gets hit by the silver ball
that's just flown out of your mouth
she's down for good
kids gather around
call the clown
its time to play

superwhip

ride your bike
pull the sled
back up on the hill again
when noone's looking
noone's around
put it on the ground
and slide back down

superwhip
