A founder member of the now well-known Lo-fi band, Cleaners from Venus. during the 1980s Newell also co-wrote songs with the pop star, Captain Sensible. A highly entertaining live act, Martin Newell performs only rarely, refusing nowadays to tour at all. Martin returns to the Headgate Theatre in a very rare solo appearance to raise funds for Colne Radio, with whom he has long been associated with and presents a regular show.
