The Chills - Lost In Space (live at the Windsor Castle, Auckland, 10 May 1985)

"Lost In Space" was among the first generation of songs that Martin Phillipps wrote for The Chills, along with other compositions such as "I Saw Your Silhouette", "Rolling Moon", "16 Heart Throbs" and "Juicy Creaming Soda", among others. It was performed on a regular basis from early 1981 until the demise of the Phase 9 line up in February 1986, and after a long absence was reinstated into the bands set in 2007 and has been performed live ever since then. Unfortunately the song was never properly recorded in a studio. In 2000, however, a live version of the song, recorded on a cassette recorder by a member of the audience at a concert in Auckland nearly three years before this performance was filmed, was included as the opening track on disk one of the 3CD "Secret Box" compilation. This concert was filmed by Bob Sutton on a Panasonic video camera, the same video camera that was used to film the Doublehappys "Needles and Plastic" video the following month. It was digitised from the original master tape in December 2010. The Chills lineup at this point was Martin Phillipps (guitars/vocals), Terry Moore (bass/vocals), Peter Allison (keyboards/vocals), Alan Haig (drums).
