The Bats

Flying Nun Records

$0.00

All prices in New Zealand dollars.

 

Originally released on cassette in 1987, Compiletely Bats gathers together this great New Zealand bands first three EPs - By Night (1984), And Here Is Music for the Fireside (1985) and 1986s Made Up in Blue.

Now re-issued for the first time since 1990 a compilation of one of Flying Nun's most acclaimed and loved indie pop pioneers, The Bats.

These early tracks show a group that has gone on to influence countless bands around the world. And for good reason. From the opening Made Up in Blue through to tracks like Claudine, the guitars jangle with both an optimism and a deeper melancholy that lurks just below the surface. While at times their offhand vocals and melodies tell tales of indecision and despair, The Bats are also masters of a sound and feeling that can only be described as joy.
