I Hear A New World

Joe Meek And The Blue Men - Orbit Around The Moon

I don't care what anybody says, especially logical people: if you go up into space, you will hear Joe Meek.

Only a complete genius could come up with a cosmic beat album. Imagine Flying Saucer Attack jamming with Lonnie Donegan and you're getting there.
With Oliver Postgate on backing vocals.

Truth is, Joe put in the Rock Island Line bits and the poppy hooks in order to make it more entertaining. I'm glad he did. Anybody can make an experimental album. Not just anybody makes it rock.

Ladies and Gentlemen: I give you the strange sight of Martians in the Coffee Bar, ordering a cappucino and grooving to Tommy Steele.

Thanks a lot to Tom from the wonderful Indie MP3 for pointing me in the direction of Comfort Stand...
An excellent non profit making web label that has an album of messages and obscure tracks from Joe Meek to download.... Great stuff.
