VA - Joe Meek - Twangy Guitars, Reverb & Heavenly Choirs


" Not an artist in the traditional sense of the term (he couldn't play or sing at all) producer Joe Meek has nonetheless been belatedly recognized as an important, even inimitable, figure of early British rock & roll. Like Phil Spector, Meek developed idiosyncratic production techniques that, much more than the artists he worked with, stamped a vision of mad genius on his recordings. In Meek's case, this usually amounted to super-compressed sound, wavering sped-up vocals, ghostly backing violins and choruses, spooky echo and reverb, ticky-tack variable-speed piano, and all manners of Halloween and outer-space sound effects. The recordings were all the more remarkable for being produced not in a state-of-the-art studio, but in Meek's own bedroom-sized facility, located over a shop within the flat he rented.

Meek couldn't rightly be compared to Phil Spector -- he favored gawky, dippy teen idol fare for gawky, dippy teen idols, not the gutsy soul- and R&B-infused Wall of Sound. But he was a trailblazer in his own right -- even before Spector, he set up shop as rock & roll's very first independent producer of note, making recordings on his own terms and leasing them to labels for distribution. In the United States, he only scored big with the Tornados' "Telstar" (the first British rock & roll record to top the American charts, a year before the Beatles) and the Honeycombs' "Have I the Right." In the U.K., he produced scores of records, many of them flops, and many others hits, for the Tornados, Honeycombs, Screaming Lord Sutch, John Leyton, Heinz, the Outlaws (featuring Ritchie Blackmore for a time), and many more. Highly prized by some collectors, Jello Biafra noted in the book Incredibly Strange Music, Vol. 2, "You can tell a Joe Meek record a mile away."

Meek's business and production methods may have been ahead of his time, but his actual musical tastes actually started to run behind the times with the advent of the self-contained groups of the British Invasion. He actually recorded a few respectable efforts in the R&B/mod vein, but his career was in a severe spiral by the time his life ended in tragic circumstances in early 1967, when he shot his landlady and himself. John Repsch's book The Legendary Joe Meek (published in the U.K. only) is a biography of this fascinating figure. "

The King-Beats - Beat In Germany (Smash Boom Bang )

The King-Beats - Beat In Germany (Smash Boom Bang )

The King-Beats were a German-based quintet that specialized in Anglo-American style rock & roll ranging from light pop/rock to bluesier sounds ("Hear What I Say") with a couple of near-ludicrous variations on classic rock & roll ("Too Much Language Business") in between. They actually did some first-rate songs that could have competed with the real British and American article on their home turf, including "Same Way, Every Day," "I Know You Need Me," and "Make Up Your Mind," a lot of it resembling the work of the early Beatles circa Please Please Me. The group's principal lineup consisted of Elmar Marz (keyboards, bass, vocals), Ehrhard Marz (guitar, vocals), Klaus Kieswald (drums), Rainer Marz (guitar, vocals), and Richard Ungerath (guitar), although several members, including keyboardist Hans Werner Heine and drummer Joachim Franz, passed through the group around the core of the Marz brothers. In addition to their work as the King-Beats, the group also released singles, EPs, and albums under several pseudonyms -- the most bizarre was a 1966 single credited to Malepartus II, a German-language adaptation of "Wild Thing" entitled "Lisbeth" with a B-side of "Ichglaab, die Hole Mich ab, Ha-haaa," an adaptation of "They're Coming to Take Me Away, Ha-Haaa!"; their live recordings, credited to the Ad-Libs (not to be confused with the Ad Libs, the American vocal group), are first-rate covers of songs associated with the Beatles, the Searchers, the Animals, Tom Jones, the Hollies, and others. None of these are as slavishly devoted to the originals as, say, the Beatles Revival Band, but they are performed with a lot of love and passion. The three Marz brothers had previously worked together in numerous rock aggregations, including the Strangers, throughout the 1960s, but the King-Beats marked their lasting contribution to music. In 2001, Bear Family Records released an 80-minute CD of the group's complete released recordings in their various guises as part of its Smash! Boom! Bang! series devoted to the 1960s German beat boom.

The Dakotas - Meet The Dakotas

The Dakotas - Meet The Dakotas


The Dakotas' four-track 1963 EP Meet the Dakotas combined the A-sides and B-sides of their first two singles, "The Cruel Sea"/"The Millionaire" and "Magic Carpet"/"Humdinger." All of the tracks (unlike the Merseybeat ones they cut as the backup group to Billy J. Kramer) show them to be a very accomplished instrumental group in the style of the Shadows, with perhaps some Ventures influence, too. Easily the best of the four is the taut and eerie "The Cruel Sea," which made number 18 on the British charts, though American listeners might be more familiar with it via the Ventures' cover version.
