BailterSpace originally hail from Christchurch, New Zealand and are now currently based in New York.

As one of the longest serving bands for New Zealand independent record company Flying Nun, Bailterspace's first incarnation came in the form of the trio's group 'the Gordons' in the early 80s. When 'the Gordons' disbanded, Alister Parker and Hamish Kilgour (drummer for the Clean) commenced with a new project called Nelsh Bailterspace (1987), adding Glenda Bills on drums and Ross Humphries on bass.

After the release of a Nelsh Bailterspace e.p., Bills and Humphries departed and ex-Skeptics guitarist John Halvorsen was recruited to play bass.

This initial Bailterspace lineup recorded the debut album Tanker (1988). Kilgour soon after rejoined The Clean and Brent McLachlan was reinstated as drummer. The album Thermos followed in 1990, recorded at Writhe studios in Wellington, then came The Aim e.p. in 1992 (the title track a re-invented version of Nelsh's Our Aim), two of the songs being recorded in New York, and which pre-empted their relocation to the Big Apple. Working from New York, Bailterspace went on to produce Robot World (1993), the B.E.I.P. e.p. (1994), Vortura (1994), Wammo (1995) and their latest album to date Capsul released in April 1997.

Since aligning themselves with Turnbuckle Records in 1997, Bailterspace have released two further recordings - the Argonaut/Capsul 7" (1997), and the 8 song Photon E.P. which arrived on our shores in July 1998.
The Solar.3 album was released late 1998 and was distributed through Wild Side Records/BMG in Australasia.


Anyway - don't die wondering - make an effort to experience Bailterspace in any medium....
