Alec Bathgate

Bio

Alec Bathgate's musical career started when The Enemy burst onto the unsuspecting Dunedin music scene in 1977 (a spectacular and ground-breaking arrival in its own right, we might add) with young Alec on guitar.

Right from the moment that Alec formed The Enemy with fellow art student Mick Dawson and talented misfit Chris Knox, he's been involved with Chris in one of this country's most enduring and original songwriting partnerships. Alec and Chris were the Enemy's songwriting core and after the group evolved into Toy Love in 1979, they were hammering out classic tunes for a band who were rapidly becoming the most highly-rated act in the land. Toy Love was over less than two years later, but Chris and Alec were straight into a new project, the Tall Dwarfs.

After one EP on the Furtive label, the Tall Dwarfs hooked up with Flying Nun and ten records later they remain creative stalwarts of the label. The duo are now legends in the world of four-track home-recording - they were invited to headline the inaugural Fast Forward home-recording festival in Holland where they were joined by the likes of Sebadoh.

Alec went on to release his solo albums Gold Lame (2002) and The Indifferent Velvet Void (2004).
