about

Self produced by Guy and Cos at the suggestion of Sexton Ming - this recording catches the Rudes at an early playful and experimental stage - with some songs that still pop-up! It's quirky and a little bit raw and definitely DIY but that just adds to its outsider appeal :)

Track Name: Aliens
So this is it
the train
the seats
the windows
The thoughts on other peoples shoes

But their in disguise
Can you hear the mice?
Can you hear the mice?

Nervous stares all around
as we crawl along
the London underground

Their all aliens
Their aliens I'm sure

Today I consider escalators
stair impersonators
creatures of slow motion
with an automatic notion
to tame your feet

Their all aliens
Their aliens I'm sure

You see the mice on the tracks
You see them as you wait for your train
You think their vermin but their not
Oh no their not.

Their all aliens
Their aliens I'm sure
Bred by the train company
Bred till their big and fat
Squeezed all their fluids flooding out
Used to power the trains
Cheaper than gasoline!

Their all aliens

Track Name: Frying The Neighbours
They're looking through my letterbox / They're reading my mail /
They're crawling across my carpet now / I can see their sticky trail / They're underneath my bed / Going through my underwear / Taking video footage of the thoughts in my head / I've got my safety to con- sider / I've got my safety to consider in this situation / They're in my kitchen draws now / They're poisoning my food /They're going through my knifes & forks / To see what they can use / They're watching me in the bath through a hole in the bathroom door / But I'm watching back just to let them know / I know / I can hear them / I can smell them / I can taste the poison they're putting in my air / I've just got to do something about it / It's a matter of defence
Track Name: Derek
Filling the space with his pink, bulky, body
and that sweet sweet smell
of sweat
I smell whenever I go to bed at night.

Filling the space with his pink, bulky, body.
Sometimes he reminds me of the birds.
Sometimes he reminds me of the birds.

I've got a man in my loft and I call him
Derek.

He's not as good as you but he's cheap
Derek.

Feed him on rice crispies and stolen cheese
Derek.

He's cut a hole in the roof so you can see his belly
Derek.

I've got a man in my loft and I call him
Derek
I've got a man in my loft and I call him
Derek

I've got a man.
She's got a man.
I've got a man.
She's got a man.
I've got a man
and I like to call him Derek.

Filling the space with his pink, bulky, body.
Sometimes he reminds me of the birds.
Sometimes he reminds me of the birds.

Track Name: Big Red House
There is a house on a hill
And it's a big house
And it's a red house
And it's my house
All mine!

It's got a big sofa
And a HUGE tv
The floors they are yellow
Match the doors
Which are peeling yellow paint
So much yellow paint
I though I'd wash the floors last night
But I didn't.

Big Red House
Big Red House

And it's got a nice view - Onto the car park below
Where you can't go - Because you don't have a ticket
It's got a big sofa - And a HUGE tv
The floors they are yellow - Match the doors
Which are peeling yellow paint - So much yellow paint
I though I'd wash the floors last night
But I didn't.

Big Red House
Big Red House (And I like it cause it's big and i like it cause it's sexy and I like it cause it's red and I like it cause it's mine)

A semi- detached in rural London
With walls on all three sides
Windows are fully glazed
With that genuine rustic feel that's so difficult to get these days
The garden feature, a genuine wc, looking out onto the sewer below
Ideal for you modern day family of one.
