Product Description

RE-PRESS: CD ORIGINALLY RELEASED IN 2001 An early RPM release gets the make over treatment to bring you a very special...special edition. Meeks highly influential album 'I Hear A New World', from which tracks continue to be sampled by todays pop meisters such as David Toop and Lewis Taylor, now has an extra 35 minute audio track plus a bonus enhanced CDRom track. The Audio is an interview with Meek conducted in 1962 as he takes the listener around his studio. The enhanced ROM track is the segment filmed by the World In Action team for a Granada TV documentary broadcast in the early 60's discussing influential people in popular culture at that time. The clip of Meek is approx. 3 mins in duration. The profile of Joe Meek and his recordings has risen immeasurably over the last decade. TV documentaries, book biographies, recording equipment company named after him selling his compressors, frequent name checks and frequent press pieces on his work. 'I Hear A New World' is a unique recording , Meeks vision of an outer space music fantasy which has never been equaled since. This highly unique package is a must for all Meek fans and has been unavailable for a good while

Format: Audio CD
Joe Meek and the Blue Men's I Hear a New World is astonishing. I was expecting a laughable, novelty collection of late-50s beat music with zappy noises, but it's not that at all. It's closer to Brian Eno's ambient experiments than anything on contemporary pop radio. It's frequently gorgeous, sometimes very silly, but always interesting, not least because of the mystique that surrounds it - at the time, only parts of it were released, and as Joe Meek's reputation grew following his suicide in 1967, it was hailed as something of a great lost masterpiece by people who hadn't heard it. The title track is eerie. It's supposed to set the tone for a journey into space, but with lines such as 'I hear a new world / haunting me / how can I tell / what's in store for me', it's hard not to think of Joe Meek's eventual mental disintegration. The photograph of him on the sleeve- frightened, hunted-looking - doesn't help. The album has a loose theme of a trip to the moon to witness the strange beings that inhabit the satellite, such as the fun-loving Globbots and their despondent neighbours, the Sarooes. It was intended as a showcase for Meek's production talents, and uses a strange mixture of effects, found sounds, varispeeded voices and Hawaiian guitar to produce a set of ambient songs which wouldn't have been out of place on Chris Morris' Blue Jam. It's mostly instrumental, although some of the songs feature high-pitched chanting to represent the inhabitants of the moon. Entry of the Globbots and March of the Dribcots, in particular, would not be out of place on the soundtrack to a children's television programme, and the whole album has a wide-eyed innocence that seems at odds with the seedy pop scene of the time.Read more ›

This is a most peculiar album. Very interesting if you like experimental electronic music and, considering it's from 1960 with the technology available it is quite innovative. Knowing a bit about Mr Meek and his circumstances at the time adds to the interest. There are one or two excellent tracks on here, kind of pioneers to later works by Eno and the like, Other tracks sound like The Clangers, silly speeded up voices which gets a bit tiring. As a whole 30 minute album it is quite difficult, but probably worth having for the few gems on it. The extra features on the enhanced CD make it pretty good value too.

Great opportunity to hear Joe's personal work. It's not to everyone's taste, but I really enjoyed it, displays Joe's creativity and uniqueness well. What made this album special was the additional material: listening to Joe talk about his experiences, and watching a video clip of him ( in which you can see his insecurity and paranoia developing)

I think it is quite variable, some sequences are beautiful, others ordinary. It has joined my collection.

This is an acquired taste and was well ahead of its time. He really was a strange person, but very creative.
