Blow Away Your Troubles

Release Year

First Release


THE CLEANERS FROM VENUS became one of the most influential bands of the early 80's. "Blow Away Your Troubles" was originally released in 1981 and initially only offered on cassette. Completely remastered and now on vinyl. Lol Elliott and Martin Newell, who together formed the legendary lo-fi band CLEANERS FROM VENUS met in the small town of Wivenhoe, southeast England at the turn of 1980s. Newell, a rock singer and part-time kitchen porter who'd left his band the previous summer, and Elliott, a drummer and former hippy traveller, had much in common. They shared a love of sunny 1960s pop music, punk rock and musical comedy. Neither Elliott nor Newell cared much for any kind of musical rule book, both were dismayed by the new right-wing politics which had now taken over their country. Both were in their twenties, had time on their hands and were keen to create something new.
