Ad Infinitum - Telstardotdot
artworkThis is one odd single. The wafer thin sound and Casio approach to The Tornados' classic is at once refreshing and questionable. It misses Joe Meek's entire point, yet laughs at itself in its shallow delivery.

Techno Surf (Instrumental)

When Joe Meek conceived "Telstar," he could not have possibly imagined this. Thin techno fluff, orbiting around the musical planet, just waiting to dismay the unwary. "Telstar" cries out for creative covers, but unlike "Pipeline," it has mostly attracted the unbelievably tame. Casios at twenty paces would be an improvement.
