Cleaners From Venus Treated More Reissues by Captured Tracks

Cleaners From Venus Treated More Reissues by Captured Tracks
Last year, Exclaim! called Cleaners From Venus' Vol. 2 box set one of the best reissues of the year, so we're pleased to report that Captured Tracks has now lined up Vol. 3. This latest box set will drop on June 10, and the albums will also be able individually.

The British indie pop band, led by Martin Newell, were active from the early '80s until the early '90s, and this set compiles music from the later part of their run. The set is available in four-CD or four-LP boxes. Both come with a 16-page booklet of new liner notes written by Newell.

The albums included here are: Living with Victoria Grey (originally one of the band's low-key cassette releases), Number Thirteen (which had initially been intended as a demo), My Back Wages (in its original form, unlike the prior version, which included unapproved additions) and Extra Wages (rarities and unreleased material from the same era as My Back Wages).
