Stray Trolleys / Cleaners From Venus - Secret Dreams Of A Kitchen Porter mp3 album

The album was not particularly successful commercially but his next album A Summer Tamarind returned to his usual style and was much more warmly received. In late 2005 the British singer Richard Shelton released a jazz vocal album called Top Cat with five Newell compositions. The Stray Trolleys, The Cleaners from Venus. Secret Dreams of a Kitchen Porter.

The pair formed Cleaners From Venus, primarily as a vehicle for Martin’s remarkable songwriting: an anachronistic hybrid of baroque, psychedelic 60s pop and urgent dole-queue punk. Unable to afford recording a professional studio, the Cleaners decided to do things themselves. Elliott left the band around 1983, but the Cleaners have never really gone away – their most recent album, English Electric, came out in 2010. Meanwhile, over the last 20 years Newell has also enjoyed a colourful career as a poet, memoirist, literary critic, regional TV presenter and much more besides – he is, as they say, a character (in his own estimation, ‘The Greatest Living Englishman’), and the stories he has to tell – about everything from pop music to the history of farming – could fill a. thousand pages. What were you up to in the years immediately prior to forming Cleaners From Venus?

The Cleaners From Venus is the creative vehicle of English singer-songwriter & poet, Martin Newell. The band began as a collaboration between Newell & Lawerence ‘Lol’ Elliot, releasing their first singles in the early eighties. The band remains local to Newell’s hometown of Wivenhoe, Essex. The Cleaners From Venus blended the low budget sound of home music making with melodies & lyrics which are some of the finest England has to offer. The Cleaners From Venus began recording & releasing their albums on cassette, often times with alternating track listings depending on who was recording the tape & promoted the copying of their albums by fans. Their sophomore album, ‘Midnight Cleaners,’ included the message: No rights reserved.

Martin Newell's early tapes all had hand-colored cover drawings. Those were then photocopied in black and white for the Calypso Now license releases, sometimes then hand-colored as well. Sometimes the original cover of Newell was copied in full color.

Martin Newell is great. Always makes good music. Not many people seem to know about him. That is a shame really.
