The Cleaners From Venus – The Cleaners From Venus Vol. 2

The legendary lo-fi band Cleaners from Venus formed in the small town of Wivenhoe, southeast England at the turn of 1980s by Martin Newell. The man, the myth, but to rock singer and part-time kitchen porter with a love of sunny 1960s pop music, punk rock and musical comedy. He never cared much for any kind of musical rule book and broke new ground with music that garnered a cult following and a highly-influential sound that continues to inspire. These 4 albums span the next chapter in the unveiling of the entire discography from the band (1981–1985). One album included here contains 12 unreleased songs, making it the first new release from the band in over 25 years, dubbed “A Dawn Chorus: Early Cleaners and Beyond.” This is a beautiful, 4×CD foldout wallet with booklet including album bios written by Newell himself and never-before-released photos.
