A tribute to Joe Meek, the UK's sonic genius who gave us such innovative hits as 'Telstar' and 'Johnny Remember Me' before delving into the weird world of making music from outer space! Joe is probably best remembered for murdering his landlady then blowing out his own brains in 1967.
This show includes commentary and interviews from the BBC Arena documentary about Joe which was broadcast in the early nineties. Most of the hits and a lot of the weirdness is included and there is an excellent garage/psyche track by The Buzz which we stole from Mike Bradshaw's Show. It ends with the beautiful tribute to Joe Meek that Wreckless Eric recorded a few years ago.
