Psychedelic Uke? Yes! Its about time.... A digital-only EP from Todd Parker and the Witches featuring new Ukulele interpretations of two tunes by the Tadpoles, Todd's 1990's neo-psychedelic band. The Ukulele Colored Glasses EP contains the tenor ukulele as the only stringed instrument on the psychedelic-flavored foundation. Jimmy Colored Glasses, from Tadpoles' 1999 album Whirlaway, gets a trip-hop beat and Nazareth, from Tadpoles' 1996 album, Far Out, features Todd Parker on vocals for the first time as the Tadpoles' version featured Nick Kramer. Instrumental versions of both songs complete the EP.


you're taking my mind
you're taking my money
you're taking your time
you're baking my mind
you're making me funny
you're making me blind
you're just like a train
thats going insane
thats leaving today
can you spare me a dime
i wanna get high
if i can't i might cry

c'mon make me a deal
i wanna feel real
for that i would kill
i love all your lights
they really shine bright mon
you're right out of sight
i'll take you to bed
a dream in my head
until i am dead
you're taking my mind
you're taking my money
you're taking your time
