Aliens 03:16
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 © Miss Roberts

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

Derek 07:00
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. © Miss Roberts

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. 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).

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 :)
