Alec Bathgate


Everyone’s tags

Having played in The Enemy and Toy Love and being the ‘other half’ of Tall Dwarfs, Alec Bathgate has a strong musical pedigree but can sometimes appear to be overshadowed by his more outspoken musical partner Chris Knox. More cautious at the microphone than Knox, Bathgate more than makes up for this reticence with his towering walls of guitar magic and the careful structures of his songwriting. Bathgate’s solo recordings so far include only two albums and a few contributions to various collections of covers.

    Bathgate is NZ's very own guitar god. His precision is magical.

    yeah, he's remarkable. he's really got a unique sound, incredibly catchy and textured. just plain good. when i listen to him i wonder why he doesn't have some sort of Laureate position in New Zealand ... i'd pay more taxes for that!

    i really like this...i have to wonder, has no one posted on here because they don't like it, or is it too obvious to post praise for this guy? this is the first time i've heard it, im blown away.
