about

The Yokai (Traditional Monsters in English) are a type of supernatural creature in Japanese folklore.

The term Yokai essentially refers to mischievous characters with supernatural or unexplainable capacities.

The musical world portrayed by Dick Turner and Traditional Monsters is something of a bestiary filled with borderline characters in search of hypothetical happiness, painted against a background of desperate humor...

Track Name: Sitting in the Laundromat (noon)
Sitting in The Laundromat (noon)

I put my dirty laudry

Into a dirty sack

I stuffed it full of everything

The shirt right off my back

Today I read the papers 

And they made me fell depressed

Thinking maybe I might change the world 
If all my pants were pressed

So I'm sitting in the laudromat

Getting my clothes clean

Pouring all my money

Into the big machine
I made a resolution

Things have got to stop

This world is such a dirty place

So I'll get out the spots


But what is the solution

For all my dirty clothes

I used a little too much bleach

And now they're full of holes


It's getting close to midnight

And everything's the same

I was hoping for more progress

And I'm running out of change

I've gone through all the cycles

And I've seen the dryers spin

Now everything's in tatters

Held with safety pins

Just sitting in the laundromat 

Books and magazines

Outside's the world's a dirty place

Tearing at the seams

But if I can get these clothes washed

Things will change no doubt

Still it might take forever 

For the stains to all come out

Come out
Track Name: Going to Pennsylvania
I’m gonna go to Pennsylvania
Because they say there
I’ve got a friend
Gonna go to Pennsylvania
Hoping that this heartbreak will end

I’m leaving soon for Pennsylvania
Gonna watch a marching band
Maybe go and join in a 4H club
See who wins the medal for best ham

I’ll stare down an empty coal mine
Look at that broken bell
Check out a little Marcel Duchamp
Maybe watch a soft-ball game as well

Why don’t you come with me to Pennsylvania?
You and me in a Trailways bus
Corned beef in our picnic basket
With enough beer for the two of us

I’ll stare down an empty coal mine
Look at that broken bell
Check out a little Marcel Duchamp
Maybe watch a soft-ball game as well

I’m off today for Pennsylvania
Wanna see if what they say is true
Because I need a friend something awful
To fill this empty space left by you
Track Name: When You're in Love
When you're in love

It's strange how things get

What you remember 

And what you forget

iIfe is a room  

Stuffs laying about

Love takes a broom 

And sweeps the junk out


I see on your face that you have a doubt

But when you're in ove you'll figure it out


When you're in love 
It takes all you've got 

To tell how you feel 

To someone's who's not

Life is a word 

That needs explanation

Love comes along

And does the translation


I see that you're asking how I know it's true

But when you're in love you'll see it my way, too


When you're in love 

You'll know what I mean

In a place where the plants 

Are all evergreen

Life is that garden, 

Seeds laying around 

Love makes the flowers 

Grow in the ground


I see on your face, by that look in your eyes

That you're in love and love never lies


When you're in love
