Number 874 - Alastair Riddell

Number 874

Alastair Riddell

"Out On The Street"



Genre:Glam Rock
The world had David Bowie and Gary Glitter, we here in Dirkadirkastan (NZ) had Alistair Riddell and Split Enz. (Which the Aussies stole)

I would love to show you a video of this song, but unfortunately no-one has it. Bummer. (Made me own..not great but will give you an idea)

"Sounding like New Zealand's answer to Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders From Mars, Space Waltz were fronted, sung, guitared and written for by Alastair Riddell, who caught the wild and trippy spirit of the times with the 1974 hit 'Out On The Street'. "

"Alastair Riddell and Eddie Rayner will be releasing a new Space Waltz album at the end of July 2004."
