Roadkill Radio #28: Joe Meek Shall Inherit the Earth



Everything Joe Meek touches turns to gold. And gold we are as the great man graces this spacey, devastating and obscenely loud episode with his spiritual presence and scatters his twisting of gold dust all over our smackings of psych, garage rock, punk and outrageous humour. We are indeed blessed.

*Roadkill Radio would just like to thank our sponsors, Girlsville Records and The Low Road for the ongoing support, Tom Violence Media for its somewhat competent production and of course you, the loyal fan, who without, we wouldn’t even bother producing a show.

On next week’s show, we feature a stack of early grease ball rock, plenty of twisted trash, punk and garage rock and a ‘Nerd Dancing’ segment with a well known song from the early 1980s.
