“A Life In The Death Of Joe Meek” documentary film

A Life In The Death Of Joe MeekI’ve just returned from Toronto, where I saw this film at the NXNE Film Festival, and met Howard Berger, the director, who is totally dedicated to telling the story with accuracy.
It’s an extraordinary documentary, very detailed, and includes many interviews with contemporaries; musicians, producers, engineers and studio managers. It’s a must-see film for anyone remotely interested in Joe Meek, and we are planning to host an exclusive MPG screening later this year.


Howard told me that he would be delighted to hear from MPG members. You can contact him directly at:
