  • Movie - Telstar (DVD)

    DVD Description

    Set against a backdrop of early 60’s London, Telstar is the story of the world’s first independent record producer, Joe Meek. A maverick genius who enjoyed phenomenal early success with Telstar – the biggest selling record of its time – before bad luck, depression, heartbreak and paranoia forced him into murder and suicide. A gay, amphetamine addicted, talented but deeply troubled soul, Meek dabbled in the occult. He is already an iconic figure in the world of British pop. Far from being a maudlin tale, this stranger than fiction true story is a satirical comic drama revealing the many sides of Joe Meek, a man who is now revered as a pioneer in the field of popular music.

    Synopsis

    TELSTAR tells the true story of one man’s pioneering efforts in the world of popular music, and his tragic downfall. Record producer and song-writing impresario Joe Meek is renowned for breaking UK artists in the American market. His biggest success came in 1962 with The Tornados’ hit ’Telstar’ which topped the charts on both sides of the Atlantic. This was the first time a British band had reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100 and catapulted Meek to industry-wide recognition. Meek was notable not only for his commercial triumphs, but also for his technical wizardry inside the recording studio. Despite possessing no actual musical ability, he revolutionised the way sound engineers made records by introducing innovative new techniques to the process. However, the success Meek enjoyed was short-lived and tainted by a catalogue of personal scandals. A drug-addicted, flamboyantly gay man (at a time when homosexuality was prohibited in the UK) with mounting debts and a fascination with the occult, Meek’s frustration led him to commit murder and, finally, suicide.

    Director Nick Moran brings James Hicks’ play TELSTAR to the big screen with actor Con O’Neill in the lead role and Kevin Spacey co-starring as Meek’s business advisor, Major Banks.

  • Various - Good Rockin` Tonight-The Legacy Of Sun Records (DVD)

    18,00

    ”Sam Phillips’s Sun Records will forever be best known as the label for which Elvis Presley made his timeless first recordings. But Sun earned its legendary status by also recording any number of other blues and rock & roll greats, including Howlin’ Wolf, Jerry Lee Lewis, and Johnny Cash. This 112-minute, 2001 documentary from PBS’s American Masters series features plenty of reminiscences by Sun old-timers (including the ever-voluble Phillips, who was not, apparently, universally loved by his artists) and some vintage film footage. But the best moments come when more contemporary artists–ranging from Paul McCartney, Jimmy Page and Robert Plant, and Mark Knopfler to Live, Third Eye Blind, Ben Folds, and even Kid Rock–do their versions of Sun classics like ”Honey Don’t” and ”That’s All Right Mama.” Several of these performances can also be found on the excellent Good Rockin’ Tonight CD; the documentary is good, but if you have to make a choice, go with the CD. -Sam Graham
