    LIMITED TO 500 NUMBERED COPIES (GREY AND WHITE EFFECT VINYL) PRESENTED IN GATEFOLD SLEEVE WITH CLEAR PROTECTIVE PVC COVER CONTAINING AN A4 8 PAGE COLOUR BOOKLET WITH NEW SLEEVE NOTES 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 Davies 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 inchEPs from that period.
