Volume 3Cleaners From Venus
The legendary lo-fi band Cleaners from Venus was formed in the small town of Wivenhoe, England at the turn of 1980s by Martin Newell – a 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 four albums mark the final chapter in the unveiling of the entire discography from the band, spanning the end of Martin Newell's long, storied run as the Cleaners from Venus (1985-1992). Included are Living with Victoria Grey, Number Thirteen and My Back Wages, which Newell considers a new release as it is finally being released as he originally intended it. The fourth album is collection of rarities and unreleased material from the time that My Back Wages was recorded, called Extra Wages. This beautiful 4xLP box set includes original liners written by Newell himself with unreleased photos and a 16 page book of Newell's poetry. Each LP includes a download card.
