The past two years have seen a creative burst from New Zealand / New York noisegaze merchants Bailterspace, with the release of a bracing new album “Concret”, the celebrated 25th Anniversary reissue of their Matador and Flying Nun Records classic “Wammo”, and a surprising reissue of The Gordons legendary self-titled LP paired with their “Future Shock” EP by 1972 Records. Following a teaser NYC show late last year, it seems only fitting that both coasts of America should be treated to the unforgettable live experience that is a Bailterspace concert.


Led by former Gordons guitarist Alister Parker, noise rock unit Bailterspace emerged from Christchurch, New Zealand in 1987. Originally composed of former Clean and Great Unwashed drummer Hamish Kilgour, Pin Group alum Ross Humphries on bass, and Glenda Bills on drums, the group issued its debut EP “Nelsh”. Humphries and Bills would depart soon after, resulting in the addition of former Gordons bassist John Halvorsen in time to record the 1988 full-length “Tanker”. A tour followed, but when The Clean reformed, Kilgour joined them on a permanent basis; his replacement in Bailterspace was Brent McLachlan, also the drummer in The Gordons.

Despite the restoration of The Gordons’ core roster, Bailterspace were clearly a distinct entity, their sound more dense and imposing than their previous incarnation. The trio returned in 1990 with “Thermos”, mounting a tour of the Northern Hemisphere the following year. An EP, “The Aim”, appeared in 1992, and in 1993 they released “Robot World” to further acclaim. Their prolific output continued with “Vortura” (1994) and “Wammo” (1995) before slowing as the members began living in both New York and New Zealand. They released “Capsul” in 1997 and “Solar.3” in 1999, before returning with a roar via “Strobosphere” in 2012 and “Trinine” in 2013. A brilliant new album “Concret” has confirmed that they are as vital as ever.
