New Zealand Music Month 2015 - Yet another instalment

There is actually a bit of a connection between this song and the previous one... Brent Eccles (drums) later ended up in Citizen Band before joining the Angels. Eddie Rayner (keyboards) is later of Split Enz, and even later involved in producing orchestral versions of Split Enz songs. But tonight's star is Alastair Riddell, who never really did much after Space Waltz.

Space Waltz were New Zealand's contribution to 1970s glam rock. There's a definite sign of Bowie influence to this song, although the actual Space Waltz album shows many other influences (including prog and heavy rock), all combining into an actually rather interesting whole.
