Synopsis

The stranger-than-fiction true story of the rise and fall of a true British pop pioneer is a satirical and often comic drama revealing the many sides of Joe Meek. Set in the London music scene of the early 1960s, Meek began his career with a bang, producing UK and US #1 hit 'Telstar', the biggest selling record of its time. From an apartment on the Holloway Road, Meek went on to create the strange and wonderful recordings that have made him an iconic figure in the world of British pop.
