Written and produced by the legendary eccentric Joe Meek, "Telstar" is one of the Telstar - Various - The Very Best Of The Sixties times when his inventive production style is married to an equally memorable tune. Opening with the sound of a rocket lifting off the title refers to the first telecommunications satellite, which had been launched earlier inthe song builds to a gallop on Clem Cattini's drums before bursting into the naggingly persistent melody, which Meek himself plays on an early battery-powered electronic instrument called a Clavioline, echoed by the reverb-heavy twang guitars of Alan Caddy and George Bellamy.
Meek's production is tirelessly gimmicky, with beeping sound effects, a wordless vocal chorus, and more distortion and compression than the entire Kinks catalog in totobut the tune remains paramount, making "Telstar" one of the pinnacles of '60s instrumental rock. True "Telstar" fans should also check out Glenda Collins' "It's Hard to Believe It," a Meek production that recycles the same rocket launch rumble that opens "Telstar," or a priceless demo by Meek of the tune that's included on the "outsider music" compilation Songs in the Key of Z; Meek, who could not carry a tune with both hands and a sling, "sings" the haunting wordless vocal part himself, sounding like Meredith Monk gone bubblegum.
