New York City
Joe Meek — the World’s first independent record producer — lived a brief, explosive and bizarre life which changed the world of music and the lives of everyone in his orbit forever. Despite meagre resources, he recorded three of the biggest hits of the period: “Jonny Remember Me,” “Have I The Right” and of course “Telstar,” which became one of the biggest sellers of all time. This play based on his life witnesses the contained hysteria of these momentous recording sessions and the wild times had by his band — a ramshackle bunch of local youngsters, who found themselves suddenly thrown into the big-time. His unrequited love for his one-hit wonder protégé, his fateful alliance with his landlady, and his crazy business partnership with Screaming Lord Sutch ignite the play in a whirlwind of music, mayhem and madness.
