Telstar is a West End play about the life of Joe Meek, the first independent record producer, who could reasonably be called the British Phil Spector. It's written by Nick Moran, who discovered Joe Meek when he saw the plaque on his old studio: "I stumbled across the plaque with a friend of mine in a taxi. He said, 'Oh yeah, there was this mad old poof who used to take loads of drugs and had all these young boys up there and ended up having the biggest-selling record ever and then killed himself. He used to worship the devil.'" He thought is sounded like a good idea for a play. Reviews have been pretty good, and it's running until 10th September - Details.
