MARCH 2020

THIS EVENT has now been cancelled due to growing concerns over the coronavirus.

We have no option but to abort any event for 2020 and start to focus on April 2021. 

JOE MEEK INSIGHT

I’m certainly pushing the Joe Meek mantra this year as well as my co-production and Glenda Collins releases and other Thunderbolt contributions. I am also known for a famous zine ‘Dedicated Follower’ that was showcased in a V & A exhibition (where original issues are still housed) I did a few one-offs ltd edition paper issues in recent years but the last one got such an overwhelming response I have brought it back on a regular basis. The first issue of the year features a special in-depth piece about Joe Meek’s other talents (rather than his production) His other talents being A & R and songwriting. There is an additional page about Glenda Collins as well of course. Other features like Mary Quant may also be of interest. It is ltd edition of only 500 and only £5 inc P&P anywhere in the world

LATEST NEW GLENDA COLLINS RELEASE

 
This news from Russell C. Brennan of Future Legend Records –

Future Legend Records has now signed Glenda Collins up permanently and I’m currently recording an album with her. We also acquired her early Decca releases, and as Joe Meek didn’t produce those, I thought I’d do a remix of my favourite one ‘Find Another Fool‘ and release it as a single. It’s out today at Itunes – click on link below – and all good download sites now.

‎Find Another Fool (Remix) – Single by Glenda Collins

NEW ALBUM FROM WESTERN STAR RECORDS

The new Joe Meek tribute album is complete. This should be in stock early October.

Genuine, grade A stars such as Chas Hodges and John Leyton re-recordings sit alongside current bands such as The Strays, Henry & The Bleeders and many more.


STATUE FOR JOE MEEK UPDATE

The statue for Joe Meek is currently going through talks with the Council and there will definitely be a statue, it’s just the case of getting together to discuss the final details and I’m sure we’re all aware of how long these things can take but I have been assured that there is no need for anyone to be concerned re the length of time it’s all taking.
As for the ‘Go Fund Me’ link, nothing will be put into action until I’ve had the meeting with the Council and I have all that I need to know, then the sculpture can get to work with his creativity.
Hopefully, I can give everyone a further update as soon as I have the go-ahead from the meeting, and hoping everyone will kindly get involved with the ‘Go Fund Me’ so that hopefully the statue will be erected as soon as financially possible.

Many thanks and kind regards,
Pete Rochford ~ JMS Chairman

I HEAR A NEW WORLD RE-RELEASED AS PART OF 3CD BOX SET

I Hear A New World – The Pioneers of Electronic Music, An Outer Space Music Fantasy By Joe Meek, Various Artists, 3CD Boxset
Joe Meek

£12.99

Released September 20, 2019.

A presentation featuring Joe Meek’s fantastical lunar stereophonic sound adventure, I Hear A New World; both the celebrated 1991 RPM restoration and the original unreleased 1960 concept album; placed in broader international context alongside seminal works by other pioneers of electronic music; from Daphne Oram to Edgard Varèse. Considered in this context, Meek’s masterpiece seems less an oddball pop novelty than a daring and visionary electronic sound exploration.

THE VERY LAST NEWSLETTER…

The very last ever JMS NL (#210) is currently being printed at Catford. It should be with members during early January 2019. It is a special farewell edition – 8 pages & it does contain RGM – connected new for 2019!!!!!

Of course publication of our flagship magazine Thunderbolt will continue unabated!



CHANNELLING THE BEAT! – BOOK REVIEW BY JOE MEEK SOCIETY’S ROB BRADFORD (The Ultimate Guide To UK 60s Pop On TV)

Author Peter Checksfield

Well, this magnificent tome certainly delivers. It is surely the definitive book on this fascinating subject. In essence, it is the summation of 30 (yes 30!!) + years of patient, determined, dedicated and dogged research. Author Peter Checksfield is both a TV/Film and music fan/ writer. I love the introduction to his book. It is clearly a labour of love and it is most definitely written by a fan, for fans. For over 25 years, Peter had been researching TV / Film appearances by UK Pop Music artists of the 1950s / 1960s. He was waiting for someone to publish a book on the subject. Eventually, it dawned on him that he was the person to do it. So, he then spent the next five or six years organising, refining and typing up all of the information that he had amassed – before self – publishing the results. Over 700 pages, crammed with information.

Anyone who has done any writing at all or undertaken research in archives etc (as I most certainly have) will know that it all involves a simply enormous amount of time and effort. In the past, I have done some small scale projects (eg….Joe Meek / RGM acts on TOTP), Joe Meek / RGM acts on Five O’Clock Club / Thank Your Lucky Stars etc., etc. The Tornados at the BBC (Radio) and numerous others that I could list. Essentially, it required some research skills…..but then literally hours and hours of tedious slog to extract the relevant information and then hours more work to write it all up.

Now….I know how long it took me….concentrating upon small areas of research. What Peter Checksfield has done is to research every single TV / Film apppearance by no fewer than 150 different artists!!! It is truly a monumental effort. Of course – all of the big names are included: The Animals, the Beatles, Cream, the Dave Clark Five, the Hollies, Manfred Mann, Pink Floyd, Cliff Richard, the Rolling Stones, the Searchers, the Shadows, the Small Faces, the Who…etc etc.

Plus, of course, Peter has included quite a few Joe Meek / RGM acts too: These include: Mike Berry, Billie Davis, Heinz, the Honeycombs, John Leyton, Screaming Lord Sutch, Sounds Incorporated, the Syndicats and the Tornados.

Although the above will primarily be of interest to JMS members, I am sure that most people / music fans will find the entire book absolutely fascinating. The book is packed with interesting facts and trivia. Transmission dates are included whenever possible as is information about the songs performed. Not only that – it is all incredibly nostalgic and a great memory jogger. I’m sure that most of us recall the main music shows: 6.5 Special, Oh Boy!, Drumbeat, Thank Your Lucky Stars, Ready, Steady, Go!, TOTP, OGWTest, Colour Me Pop, The Beat Room etc., etc. But where ”Channelling The Beat!” really scores is in reminding us of half – remembered / long forgotten shows (especially children’s TV) on which a lot of groups and singers made regular and numerous appearances – eg Pops And Lenny (the Lion!!), Tich and Quackers, Big Night Out, Top Beat, the Pop Spot, the Tingha and Tucker Club, Whistle Stop, Action! and many more. Again, we all tend to remember Crackerjack, Five O’Clock Club and Blue Peter….but I hadn’t thought about some of the others for well over fifty years. So many variety shows too (apart from the fondly remembered ones). They are all here in this remarkable book.

OK…to whet your appetite – Mike Berry’s 60s TV appearances: 07 – 04 – 62 Thank Your Lucky Stars (It’s Just A Matter Of Time), 11 – 08 – 62 Twist! Music With A Beat, 20 – 04 – 63 T Y L Stars (My Little Baby), 29 – 09 -63 T Y L Stars (It Really Doesn’t Matter), 24 – 01 – 64 Ready Steady Go!, 08 – 02 – 64 T Y L Stars (On My Mind), 25 – 04 – 64 T Y L Stars (Lovesick), 08 – 05 – 64 RSG!, 18 – 05 – 64 Hi-T!, 20 – 06 – 64 Open House, 26 – 06 – 64 RSG!, 02 – 07 – 64 For Teenagers Only, 17 – 10 – 64 TYL Stars (Two Lovers), 12 – 12 – 64 (Two Lovers), TYL Stars Summer Spin (That’s All I Ever Want From You Baby). Peter goes on to list all of Mike’s 1970s / 80s / 90s appearances too – ending with the Voice (13 – 02 – 16) when Mike sang True Love Ways.

I won’t list any more RGM acts just yet…..as I am sure Peter would like you to buy this brilliant book. By the way, he lists film appearances too and a handful of foreign shows like Germany’s Beat Club and the main USA shows (Shindig! The Ed Sullivan Show etc.) too. There are no illustrations, it’s all text. The main reason, of course, is to keep down the cost of the book. I got mine from Amazon for £24.95 (there was also a Kindle version for a mere £6.99). Quite honestly, it’s a steal, considering the sheer amount of work involved. A must buy for anyone with more than a passing interest in UK TV / Pop Music. This book will immediately be the ‘go to’ reference on the subject. It’s officially recommended by Peter Noone, Mike Pender, Brian Poole, Steve Ellis and Billie Davis. Oh, and me too!!       (ISBN9781723468216)

KIndle edition:  https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B07FWMTCC4/

Amongst the featured artists are Mike Berry/The Outlaws, John Leyton, The Tornados, Screaming Lord Sutch, Heinz, and The Cryin’ Shames. The book includes a foreword featuring some interesting anecdotes by Peter Noone, Billie Davis, Mike Pender, Brian Poole, Tony Crane and Steve Ellis.

With 30 years of research, over 700 info-packed pages, and a foreword by Peter Noone, Mike Pender, Tony Crane MBE, Brian Poole, Steve Ellis& Billie Davis,‘Channelling The Beat!’ more than lives up to its subtitle ‘The Ultimate Guide to UK ‘60s Pop on TV’!

Profiled are over 150 “British Invasion” artists. These include the post ‘50s rock ‘n’ roll of Cliff Richard, Adam Faith and The Tornados; the beat  explosion of The Beatles, The Tremeloes and Herman’s Hermits; the rhythm ‘n’ blues of The Rolling Stones, The Pretty Things and The Who; and the psychedelia of The Pink Floyd, Procol Harum and Traffic, not forgetting the girl singers such as Cilla Black, Billie Davis and Dusty Springfield.

Amongst the 100’s of legendary shows featured are the UK’s ‘Ready, Steady, Go!’, ‘Top of The Pops’ and ‘Thank Your Lucky Stars’, the US’s ‘The Ed Sullivan Show, ‘Shindig!’ and ‘Hullabaloo’, Europe’s ‘Beat Club’, ‘Popside’ and ‘Twien’, and 100’s of more!

So, whether you have just a casual interest in ‘60s music and culture, or you’re a more serious researcher and historian, this is the book for you!

MALCOLM LENNY BOOK

Malcolm Lenny (ex Packabeats) has a book out. While not a 100 percent Meek book he does recall his recording with Joe.

It’s available in paperback and e-format at Amazon worldwide

Here’s the Amazon UK links:

Paperback 

 

E-book

Book Description:  After being told that I should make a note of all the stories and people I’ve met during my life in music, as well as working in the television industry for 34 years, I felt compelled to put my own reminisces down on paper. It’s just that it occurred to me that I’ve met an awful lot of quite well-known people during my life, albeit some in only a small way. I played in ‘60s pop groups The Packabeats and recorded 3 singles with Joe Meek (The TELSTAR Man) and The Hi-Fi’s and recorded two singles with Glyn Johns (The Beatles  record producer after George Martin). I also had a No.1 & No.4 in the German charts in ’65 and ’66 and a hit album with The Hi-Fi’s. Later on I worked in the TV industry, mostly with London Weekend Television (ITV) and later SKY TV (Satellite TV).
