Stray Trolleys ‎– "Secret Dreams Of A Kitchen Porter" (Man At The Off Licence ‎– NOW 004) 1979

The Stray Trolleys don't half sound like The Cleaners from Venus don't they?That's because they are/were The Cleaners from Venus,but this time in a 1979 vintage.When everyone else was listening to the deconstructed rock/pop song, like Wire and the Gang of Four, Martin Newell and chums were busy RE-constructing the pop song.All the Cleaners main attributes are here in fuzzy lo-fi,like jangly melodies,social relevance, and psych-stalgia; all under the umbrella of the noble slogan,"Bankrupt the Biz - Buy DIY". An ominous prediction of what we are doing now in the bloggersphere.Apparently these were "demo's",if they exist in the DIY world at all? And weren't released until 1982;including a daringly straight tribute to those DIY legends, otherwise known affectionately as The Fab Four.
