The Very Best Of - Living With Victoria Grey

by The Cleaners From Venus

  • Record/Vinyl

    LIMITED TO 500 NUMBERED COLOUR VINYL COPIES (GREY AND WHITE EFFECT) PRESENTED IN GATEFOLD SLEEVE WITH CLEAR PROTECTIVE PVC COVER , CONTAINS AN A4 8 PAGE COLOUR BOOKLET WITH NEW SLEEVENOTES BY MARTIN NEWELL. THIS COMPILATION HAS NEVER BEEN AVAILABLE BEFORE ON VINYL.


    Deluxe vinyl issue of an album that first appeared on CD in 2004, which serves both as an introduction for new listeners and as a ‘refresher’ for past listeners. In fact,. The 18 tracks on this collection were the ‘best of’ The Cleaners vinyl years -- as opposed to their d.i.y. tape years.

    One of the great undiscovered talents of underground pop music, The Cleaners from Venus (led by Martin Newell) trawl a heritage of pop culture, trash TV and the innocence of a long-gone age. Slightly psychedelic, the songs echo Ray Davis and are steeped in 60’s nostalgia.

    These tracks were selected from Under Wartime Conditions (Autumn 1985) Going To England (1986) Town and Country (1988) plus one or two orphan tracks from singles and 12 inch e.p’ s from that period.

about

The Cleaners From Venus Wivenhoe, UK

Every week it usually ends up with the band being chased down the street by groups of women in their late 50s, who all have a fave member that they'd like to go out with. ... more
