Cleaners From Venus – On Any Normal Monday/In the Golden Autumn/Midnight Cleaners (Cassette, 1990)


GAJOOB Review by Bryan Baker, 4/1/1991:

CLEANERS Martin Newell and Lawrence Elliott offer up a consistently outstanding pop sensibility throughout these tapes. Characteristic chorused melodic guitar lines effortlessly propel the arrangements that are very full notwithstanding the homemade 4-track medium that they use. These sound great and acoustic drums really add a lot to the life of most any rock song, especially when the drummer is as talented as this. THE CLEANERS have been around the independent cassette scene for a long time, and if you haven’t heard ’em yet, I strongly urge you to do so. Homemade pop rock just doesn’t get any better than this.

Media: Cassette.
