Alastair Riddell hooked up with bassist Peter Cuddihy at Kelston Boys High School . In 1972 they were joined by drummer Paul Crowther, keyboardist Eddie Rayner and, a year later, Wally Wilkinson ,who would all go on to become memberes of Split Enz. Towards the end of 1974 ‘Space Waltz’ were the runaway favourites of televisions New Faces talent quest and toured in support of their debut single ‘Out On The Street’. The single hit # 1.
The re-release of this album, and its release for the first time on CD is significant. Never before had such a popular New Zealand group released a conceptual album of completely original work that was contemporary and avant-garde by international standards.
