    I found this record on CD decades ago in a Cash Converter sale for 1€. I took me a while to figure out what was going on there and i had no idea who these folks were. Except the indication of the NZ scene due to Flying Nun publication (i was definitively into Gate and Dead C then, so...). My first listening was a bit confusing. Distant melodies, wall of distortions, well... What was that...? Not as fuck up as Dead C, not as out-of-this-world as Gate, i had hard time to find how to get to this, but i could feel something was there...
    I didn't expect it when it happened, but one day i tryed it again and got stuck in total fascinating for the wonders going one here, eventualy. Massive rusty walls of guitar, all different from one song to another, a thick density of distortions and feedback, motorik rhythm taking you to the (heavy and turmoil) horizon, an indolent voice reaching unexpected height of intuitive grace... It was hard to believe a single album could cover such a large range of textures, tensions, intensities. Dense and droney, noisy and dirty, melodic sometimes, mechanical sometimes, powerful all the time, their sound was something totaly different from the US noise scene all stars (Dinosaur JR or Sonic Youth) or UK (MBV), they would share more common aspects with rather obscure geniuses of the same era like Luxurious Bags ("Frayed Knots" on Twisted Village is a record you want to know) or Rrope (another band everyone has probably forgotten when it was definitively one of the best guitars band of the 90's, by far, and i do not joke or exagerate : https://deathbombarc.bandcamp.com/album/we-are-you-there ).
    "Robot World" might as well being the most powerful record ever recorded by Bailter Space and became a landmark in my journey into noise rock.
    When i found the Matador LP a few weeks ago for 20€ on a flea market, it was raining realy bad, i felt i didn't lost my day, indeed.
