Telstar

Seksu Roba... Telstar (.mp3 audio 04:12). Totally wigged-out theremin version of the Tornados/Joe Meek classic.

On the second floor of number 304
Above a handbag store and the heavy roar
Of traffic rolling down the Holloway Road
A one time bedroom housed the studio of Joe Meek
Where he conjured with the sound of another world
That Tin Pan Alley thought was too absurd
But miles of wire and recording tape
Brought fortune fame and no escape for Joe Meek
As he stirred up the sound of a hurricane
Joe Meek
Called upon forces from beyond the grave
Joe Meek
Suffered alone for his madness and pain
These were the only rewards that the hit parade
Held in store for Joe Meek
Joe Meek [4]

According to Wiki "In 2005 a stage play, Telstar, based on his life starred Con O'Neill as Meek and Linda Robson as his landlady.[2] It is now being made into a film starring Kevin Spacey, Nick Moran and Martine McCutcheon with O'Neill reprising his stage role".

also "An independent American documentary, "A Life In The Death Of Joe Meek" is currently being edited for release in 2008. The production, which began shooting in 2003, includes over 60 interviews with Joe's family, close friends, associates, musicians Meek recorded and pop culture movers and shakers such as Alex Kapranos, Keith Strickland, Edwyn Collins, Liam Watson, Huw Bunford and Simon Napier-Bell".

So we will be learning more about Joe in 2008.
