Captured Tracks continue their admiral quest to re-issue every single band who came out of New Zealand in the 1980’s. The Bats were a different proposition to the likes of The Chills, The Clean and The Verlaines in that they peddled a more obviously tuneful brand of folky guitar music, commercial and catchy despite its lo-fi beginnings and use of a squeaky violin. More akin possibly to The Go-Betweens and The Triffids to the rather Wire(y) post punk of their peers. This album is a collection of their first few EP’s and is charm personified, recorded seemingly in a biscuit tin but full of strummy winsomeness.
