British punk Wreckless Eric recounts Meek's life and recreates some of his studio effects in his song "Joe Meek" from the album Donovan of Trash. The Marked Men, a Texas punk band, have a song titled "Someday" with lyric: "Joe Meek wanted all the world to know about the news he found. The Frank Black song "White Noise Maker" deals with Meek's suicide by shotgun, the white noise maker of the title. It's been so long since my Telstar.
Wreckless Eric (born Eric Goulden on the 18th May 1954 in East Sussex, England) was part of the pub-rock scene before he became one of the earliest artists to be signed to Stiff Records.
What makes Wreckless Eric such fun is its combination of catchy hooks, spirited playing, and downright rudeness. Only a handful of songs are fully formed, and those - "Whole Wide World" and Ian Dury's "Rough Kids" - are punk-inflected pub rock classics, pure pop songs in every sense of the term. The remainder are off-kilter, idiosyncratic pop songs - about everything from "Personal Hygiene" and "Waxworks" to "Telephoning Home" and "Brain Thieves" - performed with sloppy, drunken abandon.

Wreckless Eric – amERICa (Fire). Out now. Wreckless Eric is a hero to all those of us who love a good kitchen sink drama set to music. He takes the strangeness in the everyday and sets it to song. Yeah, he is, says Ged Babey, so why is Mojo usually full of such rubbish? Wreckless Eric is on Fire! Literally.
