Not sure where to start with The Cleaners from Venus? Look no further than this limited edition compilation of tracks culled from across the artist's catalog of 9-plus albums. The legendary lo-fi band began in the small town of Wivenhoe, southeast England at the turn of 1980s. Essentially the project of 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. Newell created a highly influential sound that continues to inspire to this day. The absolute opposite of a musical perfectionist, the founder Cleaner believed that great pop was to be had by doing things quickly, in slapdash fashion and by "fumbling around in the dark in search of happy accidents."
