Release Info: Bailter Space - John Peel session, Dec. 1992
I hopped aboard the good ship Bailter Space just in time for their 1993 watershed platter, Robot World. Criminally ignored, even for a band with ties to Flying Nun Records, that general indifference ultimately left more Bailter for their De minimus, yet firmly devoted fan base. Starting life as The Gordons in Christchurch, New Zealand, they released two albums under that name, but by 1989 had reshuffled their lineup, and eventually became known as Bailter Space. Under that oblique moniker seven albums resulted in roughly ten years: Tanker, Thermos, Robot World, Vortura, Wammo, Capsul, and Solar.3, alongside several short form releases including 1992's excellent Aim ep. Responsible for some of the finest noise-pop/rock of '90s, Bailter Space's amped-out swath wasn't necessarily for the genteel or faint of heart, but for those who opted to make the investment (esp in Robot World and Vortura) they were accorded the potential of being ushered into a sonic threshold without peer. iTunes and Amazon downloads have their back catalog all tied up, so the best I can offer you is a 1992 Peel Session, which as it turns out is quite representative of their distortion-ridden firepower.
