The Space/Time Continuum

Time&Space were a little known duo originating from Auckland, New Zealand in the mid 70’s. One of the multitude of bands never to make it further than playing funerals and weddings, their career peaked playing support for Dragon and Hello Sailor at their house in Ponsonby. Celebrated by the avant-garde Auckland scene for their experimental use of tambourine and pan pipe backing tracks, Time&Space were rumoured to have inspired author Maurice Gee with their only recorded single “The Gift of Oblivion”, a phrase which reappeared in Gee’s much loved children’s classic, Under the Mountain.

Rachel & Theo in the cult classic television series Under the Mountain, 1981.
