Yes, my little friends, this is my loving tribute to the legendary Joe Meek, the man who answers the musical question: Could there be a less stable Brian Wilson? The man whose own story ends with "before turning the gun on himself." The man who wrote Telstar, surely a candidate for the greatest instrumental of the rock and roll era. The man who inspired a thousand bizarre sounds in British beat music. The man who turned down the Beatles (or so the story goes). The man who liked Steve Howe's trousers. The man who never met a terrible organ sound he didn't like. The man who believed that reverb was a food group. The man who turned his apartment into a shit factory... er, hit factory. The man who.... oh, you get the point. Joe Meek is a legend - a legend that will last long after other legends will stop lasting; a legend that will last a lunchtime. OK, enough nonsense - I LOVE THE JOE MEEK SOUND! And make no mistake about it, kiddies - there IS a Joe Meek sound. I've tried my best to capture some of his greatest kookiest sounds, his hookiest recordings, his most ludicrous moments, his tributes to space, and more. There is a "wealth" of Meek material out there, easily enough for more volumes. I think I'll keep this to one volume, lest your little heads explode. Joe "and you will know me by the trail of reverb" Meek - my personal lord and savior.

Very cool. Your record collection is a lot more extensive than mine.

Joe Meek! Great, great stuff Sean. Love that Screaming Lord Sutch & the Savages track especially.
Date: 8/10/2003
Looks great Sean. To be honest,I'm pretty unfamiliar with the Joe Meeks sound, so perhaps you could add this one to the heap of hip.
Date: 8/10/2003
Awesome! I've been looking forward to this, since you mentioned it. I really have to hear this. Didn't joe Meek take a header down his apartment stairs?

..and the MEEK shall inherit....good one Sean! The "Stairwell Studio"
meister brought forth for the masses, the misses, and the missus.

Joe Meek, the mad genius. I've loved the Honeycombs records and of course the Tornados. Not familiar with the other stuff besides Sutch. Heard some stories about Meek over the years. Now you can google him to find out everything. Great mix Sean.

Very cool Sean. No Crawdaddy Simone or Baby I Go For You? I demand a second volume with alot more girl groups too.
Date: 8/12/2003
tremendous stuff, Sean. Can't wait to hear this. A prime candidate for mix of the week.

There are tons o' stories about Joe. The confirmed death seems to be that Joe killed his landlady, shooting her and pushing her down a flight of stairs; then shot himself. On the anniversay of Buddy Holly's death, no less. Joe suffered from many mental problems (paranoia, schizophrenia), and was also gay when homosexuality was much more stigmatized than it is now. Apparently, he was in love with Heinz (originally of the Tornados), though Heinz married once or twice during the Meek heyday.

Dang, that's a good mix. Nice to see someone else bowing at the altar of the alchemist of pop.
