about

In early 1989, Tadpoles (then a duo of Mike Audino and me) produced a cassette-only album
on our 4-track
called
Beautiful Music For Ugly Children
and gave it out to a few friends before promptly
moving on to the next batch of songs.

That's just how things we done in the days
before MP3, the web and file sharing.

In the 90's, two of those songs,
Judas, This is Jesus and Old Dirty Mushrooms
appeared in freshly recorded form as bonus tracks on
Tadpoles "Far Out" album and the "Know Your Ghosts EP"

And that was the last Beautiful Music we ever played
for Ugly Children.

Until Now.

A funny thing happened on the way to recording
an album of
brand new Witches material.

We got sidetracked.

Mike always said BMFUC was his
favorite Tadpoles album.

He wanted to give it another chance.

So we did.

And now Beautiful Music for Ugly Children
has turned into
Evil Bliss.

What is old is new. What is new is old.

We had a lot of fun remaking this.

Hope you have fun listening to it.

What is made is how it is.

And that,

is all.
