This follows the Joe Meek story to its tragic and violent end, when the producer ended his own life with a shotgun. It picks up as ‘Telstar’ hit Number 1 on both sides of the Atlantic and charts the inevitable decline in his fortunes after producing the biggest-selling UK record ever to that time (sales in excess of five million). Unfortunately Meek’s status as a maverick outsider in the music business leasing his recordings to major labels left him exposed and, after the beat boom rendered his recordings sounding less cutting-edge, the story ended in his studio over a shop in North London in 1967.
