Intergalactic Instrumentals From the Warped Mind of Joe Meek


Telstar was the song of that put crazy ol’ Joe Meek on the map, it has a very rare quality in being completely unique and genuinely weird while still being easily digestible and loved by the general population. I still hear the song in grocery stores, and it’s still pretty breathtaking the first time you hear it even forty five years later. Like i said, this is a pretty strange deal. Joe meek was a really strange guy, who made strange music, but in the end was every bit as groundbreaking as Spector. Spector Zigged and Meek Zagged.


If you like the sounds of the video, get the whole album.
