MY NEW FAVORITE BAND. What boulder have i been living under?? This UK outfit was the brainchild of producer Joe Meek, TONE DEAF raging house tenant, and Britain's first independent producer. He pioneered experimental production techniques to create what paved the way for geniuses such as Brian Eno. A gay producer in the 50s in a country where it was illegal to be gay? A pill popping homicidal lunatic? Umm, color me obsessed.
