‘Driving Around New Jersey on a Summer Night,’ John Trubee and the Ugly Janitors of America



From the 1990 album, Strange Hippie Sex Carnival: A lively instrumental that really evokes its title phrase.

Trubee grew up in Princeton and has worked with the eccentric rocker, Zoogz Rift. He’s now based in Santa Rosa, Calif.

New Jersey celebrated its 350th birthday last year. And in the 350 Jersey Songs series, we are marking the occasion by posting 350 songs — one a day, for almost a year — that have something to do with the state, its musical history, or both. We started in September 2014, and will keep going until late in the summer.

If you would like to suggest any songs to be included, please let me know in the comments section underneath the video. And if you want to see the entire list, either alphabetically or in the order the songs were selected, click here.
