As much of the original soundtrack proved to be unfit for release, the band opted to treat the film as essentially a silent movie, meaning that newly written scores had to be recorded, as well as new versions of two of the original (and otherwise unheard) musical numbers written for the film, "The Importance of Evergreen", and "Lord It's Lonely", and a new version of the track "Eloise", previously heard on the Baby Sex demo tape in 1971.
The soundtrack to Whatever Happened To Vileness Fats? was reissued on CD featuring selections from The Census Taker soundtrack as bonus material. In 2001, The Residents would re-edit Vileness Fats again into a tighter 17 minute "concentrate", with another newly recorded soundtrack, for the Icky Flix project.
