Few NZ acts have made the immediate impact that glam rock band Space Waltz did as they exploded into living rooms with their appearances on TV talent show Studio One in 1974. The judges were wary (to say the least) but the exposure rocketed their debut single ‘Out on the Street’ to the top of the charts. An album followed but failed to replicate that initial success. Space Waltz was largely Alastair Riddell’s project but band members included Mike Chunn and Eddie Rayner (from Split Enz) and drummer Brent Eccles who later joined Oz rockers The Angels.
