The Cleaners from Venus are these four 65 year-old guys who all dress the same and look a bit like each other. They live together in a house and sing these very popular guitar-based songs, in between having lots of adventures. Every week it usually ends up with the band being chased down the street by groups of women in their late 50s, who all have a fave member that they'd like to go out with.

Number Thirteen from The Cleaners From Venus (1999) (LP). Following the release of 'Living With Victoria Grey', Martin Newell and the Cleaners from Venus once again began taking their musical careers seriously, releasing a few singles and two vinyl LPs. However by late 1988 Newell and bass player Peter Nelson left the band and ended up forming a side project by the name of The Brotherhood of Lizards. Four of these would eventually form the basis of what became his first solo album and international success, The Greatest Living Englishman. The quartet of songs chosen by Partridge were, 'The Jangling Man', 'Home Counties Boy', 'A Street Called Prospect', and 'Christmas in Suburbia'.
