THE LADY WITH THE CRYING EYES
Photograph of the famous painting by Joe Meek was donated by Andrew Hiley
Since sometime in the early 1970’s a picture has been in our family, My dad went on a pilgrimage to Newent to see the birthplace of the Telstar man, he met one or Joe’s brothers either Eric or Arthur and after a long talk finding out about Joe and his life he was taken to a garage or shed at the back of a house that contained some of Joe’s ‘things’.

THE STREET IN EASTLEIGH, HAMPSHIRE NAMED AFTER HEINZ
Photo of Joe Meek signed band ‘The Nashpool’, taken backstage at the Legendary ‘Star Club’ Hamburg by a venue waiter (August 1964). A youthful Robb Shenton on the right.
Robb Shenton notes:
‘The Nashpool’ [From Liverpool] – which I was a member, on Keyboards/Backing Vocals, were signed to Joe Meek; and had recorded several tracks at 304, a day before leaving to travel to Hamburg. The band and I parted company after the three month season at ‘The Star Club’, so the planned release was shelved by Joe. We also played in other Star Club Venues in Germany – [licensed by Star Club owner Manfred Weissleder], e.g; Kiel, Cologne, Rendsburg, Flensburg etc.
