Martin Newell (Cleaners From Venus)

Martin Newell is a poet, author, musician, gardener and general troublemaker. As the main singer/songwriter from the Cleaners From Venus, he self-released his albums on cassette and had as little to do with music industry as possible, becoming an inspiration for many who thought they could go about things their own way. Martin talks about the best advice we got, meeting and working with Andy Partridge (XTC) and his memories of the 1960’s. I have such a good time chatting with Martin, I pull a Zelig and my own voice starts to unconsciously imitate his accent!
