    TRUBEE RECORDS : NUDE WOMAN EXDOCRIUS
    by JOHN TRUBEE AND THE UGLY JANITORS OF AMERICA TR 6900837
    12" vinyl full length LP on 180 gram virgin vinyl. All tunes composed by yours truly, produced by Bruce Duff and yours truly. Tunes: WHEN BIG TINY COMES TO TOWN---really tight surf-punk instrumental groove. PEOPLE ARE IDIOTS--I heard Julie Andrews as MARY POPPINS singing this anthem to misanthropy in my head for DECADES. FINALLY I expunged it from inside my head out into the world. TIME HOWLS is a requiem for dead friends, a meditation on time changes and eternity. ALDO RAY is about ALDO RAY. HAG MARCELLA was inspired by Sinatra singing a melody I heard on the radio and a vicious bitch named Marcella at a former job who used to scream at me. DRAGGIN' YOU DOWN INTO MEDIOCRITY is a heavy rockin' litany of crap I hate which degrades the quality of our lives. SPANISH SUNSET EXDOCRIUS is a flamenco-inspired, exotic instrumental latin groove designed for nude couples to listen to during fervid lovemaking on lazy Sunday afternoons.

    Includes unlimited streaming of NUDE WOMAN EXDOCRIUS via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

about

Thank you for bothering to pick up this LP and examine it more closely. We commend your astute attention to modern culture and your heartwarming curiosity so sadly lacking in far too many of your peers. We earnestly hope our beautiful music makes you happy.

There are two distinctly different groups of musicians on this record---one band in Los Angeles, another band in San Francisco. They are all one, organic whole: THE UGLY JANITORS OF AMERICA. I invented this band in 1983 in North Hollywood, California, to perform and record my music. Any and all musicians I have conscripted since then are all part of the same organic, whole band and part of my plan to bring my music---made on nothing but my ideas, shoestring, and some duct tape—to the world. Our music reflects all the joy, madness, passion, sorrow, agony, and excitement in life which is often so difficult to directly express. Music is our great expressive outlet for all the joys and madness and sorrows and passions in life.

I cannot ever express how exciting and how much fun it is to invent musical ideas in my head, organize them, enlist great musicians to perform them, and happily fling recordings of them out into the world. It is my supreme passion in life.

It is my strong hope that this passion has been imbued into this vinyl, and when it enters your ears will bestir you with similar passion.

--John Trubee, Santa Rosa, California, May 25, 2014

People are idiots

Liars and cheaters
Dumb little babies
Criminal mofos
Who want us to die!
To die!
To die!
To die!

Little liars and cheaters
And shitheads and fools
Pissy control freaks and sadists
Who kill us with rules

Happyface dumbbells in motels
Who love to see us in pain
Little bitchy vermin
Just squirmin' like in “The Devil's Rain”!

Little idiots, goddamn idiots
Fuckin' idiots have ruined the world

Little idiots, goddamn idiots
Fuckin' idiots have ruined the world

Time Howls

Time howls down the alleys
Blasts past desert mountains
Slaughters friends forever
Endless, ceasing never
Barry, Zoogz, and Richie
Candace, Pam, and Jeannie
Moments appear too distant
Passing: too unseemly
Here but dust and ashes
And the living

Time howls, conquers strongmen
Renders all impotent
Memory vestige sorrows
Sadly fleeing moments
But a speck at twilight
Purple clouds go fleeing
Shadows flitting through the darkness
Sobbing, keening
Here but dust and ashes
And the living

We
Shimmers of vibrating, colored light
Dance a song
For a moment
Moment's gone
Moment is eternity
Desert sands
Birthing mountains


Hag Marcella

Hag Marcella's dead
I bashed her head in with a rock
Couldn't stand her scolding squawk
Her bitchy, old hag talk
That's why she's dead
I killed her good
Her blood, it gushed upon the ground
She didn't make a sound
No tears for harpy shrew


Hag Marcella, crone
You're every bitch suburban mom
Slapping her kid's head
In the supermarket aisle
You're everywhere
You're every schoolmarm
In every grade school where I died
You scolded without end
Flinging shit upon the kids

Die! Die!
Old hag die!
You've tortured my children
For the very last time
Die! Die!
Old hag die!
You've bitched at me
For the very last time
So go to Hell
Why don't you just go to Hell?

Hag Marcella, bitch
You're every high-strung harpy's shrill
Your voice, instead of fists,
Upon the world enacts your will
Go die some more
Go far away
From my peaceful solitude
From my remote hermit's lair
From my calm, reflective mood

I amble by
The colonnades of Europe old
Searching for her Spanish gold
And the secrets that she holds
In vaults of mold
I climb on high
My frozen, misty mountaintop
From my aerie vista perch
I watch the world unfold

Die! Die!
Old hag die!
You've tortured my children
For the very last time
Die! Die!
Old hag die!
You've tortured me
For the very last time
So go to Hell
Why don't you just go to Hell?

Draggin' You Down Into Mediocrity

Draggin' you down into mediocrity
Draggin' you down, whoa
Draggin' you down into mediocrity
Draggin' you down, whoa
Draggin' you down into mediocrity
Draggin' you down, whoa
Draggin' you down into mediocrity
Draggin' you down, whoa

And when the whole world burns
And when the whole world screams
And when the whole world dies

Satan be standin' on the mountaintop
Pissin' fire on the pigs below

Your girlfriend's an idiot
She went and fucked warthogs
Then she demands diamonds, whoa

Draggin' you down into mediocrity
Draggin' you down, whoa

Petty, normal dipshits
Stupid, boring office jobs
Proud of their stupidity, whoa

Draggin' you down into mediocrity
Draggin' you down, whoa

Drunken ugly fistfights
Bloody sick barroom brawls
Everyone kills everyone, whoa

Draggin' you down into mediocrity
Draggin' you down, whoa

Bitchy, snotty people
Shove ahead of you in line
They went and grabbed everything, whoa

Draggin' you down into mediocrity
Draggin' you down, whoa

And when the whole world burns
And when the whole world screams
And when the whole world dies

Satan be standin' on the mountaintop
Pissin' fire on the pigs below

Wasting all your precious life
At your dumb, stupid, boring job
Just to make the owners rich, whoa

Draggin' you down into mediocrity
Draggin' you down, whoa

Dumb, worthless bullshit
Stacking old cardboard
Wasting your precious life, whoa

Draggin' you down into mediocrity
Draggin' you down, whoa

Vicious, cruel managers
Control-freaking everyone
Thowin' shit everywhere, whoa

Draggin' you down into mediocrity
Draggin' you down, whoa

Hyena Boy and Granny Fuck
Fuckin' in the guest suite
Then they shit on everyone, whoa

Draggin' you down into mediocrity
Draggin' you down, whoa

And when the whole world burns
And when the whole world screams
And when the whole world dies

Satan be standin' on the mountaintop
Pissin' fire on the pigs below

Lunkheaded boyfriend
Stupid, pissy girlfriend
Arguing in public:
A study in ignorance, whoa

Draggin' you down into mediocrity
Draggin' you down, whoa

Freakshow of Normals
Parade of Dipshits
Carnival of Idiots, whoa

Draggin' you down into mediocrity
Draggin' you down, whoa

Arrogant celebrities
Unwarranted self-regard
Shitty, pompous morons, whoa

Draggin' you down into mediocrity
Draggin' you down, whoa

Stupid, piggish yuppies
Greedy, grabby infants
Gotta hog everything
Gimme gimme gimme gimme

Draggin' you down into mediocrity
Draggin' you down, whoa

And when the whole world burns
And when the whole world screams
And when the whole world dies

Satan be standin' on the mountaintop
Pissin' fire on the pigs below

Draggin' you down into mediocrity
Draggin' you down, whoa
Draggin' you down into mediocrity
Draggin' you down, whoa
