I agree with Idioteque77. I managed to somehow discover Bailter Space about the same time as I discovered Underground Lovers and The Church (three great Antipodean bands), which I think was around the mid-90's. The APS record shop in Crewe was at that time going well, run and owned by a friend of mine. He very often put an album on just after you went in, to get your attention, or that of other customers (many of whom became friends over time, and still are), knowing that you would be interested and you would probably then buy it. Shrewd of Tony, but he was loved for it.
They were great days back then, and marvellous memories often float back, such as uncovering so many superb bands, although Bailterspace must be in the top five of my discoveries.
On late Friday afternoons it would be the place to kickstart the weekend, and you may have left with a 'prize' album, maybe even a Bailterspace one. So lucky to have been there.

I was just browsing through my collection of Bailter Space CDs - I only own a few of their albums - and found that their older LPs are being offered for pretty steep prices, and also that - surprisingly - there seem to be no comments at all about this fine group. What's up with that?
IMHO, Bailter Space would be well-deserved and also likely candidate for a career-spanning box-set. Matador, Numero, who's up for it?
