The Brotherhood of Lizards
Lizardland

Been waiting a long time for this to be re-issued. This is the short lived 'other' band of the Cleaners From Venus main man Martin Newell but there's not all that much difference in the sound. It still has that perfect '80s update of classic '60s pop and the sort of melodies that other bands would kill for. Once again it was ignored by the public at large possibly to do with Newell's insistence on touring only by bicycle.

The Stray Trolleys
Barricades and Angels

If, like me, you've fallen in love with the music of Martin Newell via the various the Cleaners from Venus and the Brotherhood of Lizards re-issues on Captured Tracks then here's another one to add to the list. This delves further back in time to the late '70s and Newell's rickety new wave outfit the Stray Trolleys. His melodic instinct is already perfectly intact and here coupled with songs of a more glammy persuasion referencing Roxy Music, Lou Reed and Bowie.
