Label: Captured Tracks
From Television Personalities to The Pastels, early-'80s Great Britain was a fabulous place for lo-fi pop sounding as if it was recorded on cheap boomboxes, inside echo-laden public restrooms. Another key player in this movement was one Martin Newell, whose Cleaners From Venus project dropped a slew of excellent cassettes, singles and LPs at the time. One of the very best, in fact, is Midnight Cleaners. Split between deliciously melancholic jangle ("Wivenhoe Bells (II)") and avant-oddities (the sax-laced title track), it's a well-balanced presentation of the musician's eccentric vision.
