Melbourne’s cosmic crusader returns to NZ after a long absence to present his new album ‘The Fire Set’ a journey through time and space.

The spaceman’s recent performances have drawn comparisons to Neil Young, Yo La Tengo and sonic outlaws Negativeland. A regular musical contributor to Melbourne’s rich independent music scene, BS has been dominating airways, hallways and just about every pub in Victoria.

Basement Spaceman’s new album ‘The Fire Set’ has received widespread critical acclaim and provided a backdrop for some inspirational performances.

One Seriously good record, an absolute thing of beauty on vinyl. Harks back to a late 80’s English sound, think Loop, The Darkside, Spaceman 3, Spiritualized… and that’s no bad thing at all! (Neil Rogers : The Australian Mood 3RRR)

Basement Spaceman will also be joined by one of New Zealand’s finest singer songwriters AJ Bell.
