A band - since New Year's eve 1982. Same 4 people still writing, recording, performing, making videos and enjoying each other’s company, the Bats have evolved from being described as country folk music with a sardonic city edge through to indie pop/rock - many think of the Bats as never changing. In and out of fashion several times without trying. The world revolves around The Bats and young initiates fall in love when they discover Bats gems from the past in their parents record collection while their parents have moved on to their latest Bats release.
Since New Year's Eve 1982 the same line-up has survived without break-ups, without re-unions, with new songs constantly being added to their repertoire (thanks to healthy song writing from Robert Scott) and then being recorded - 8 CD's with no repeats and still receiving 4 star reviews in the likes of Mojo and UnCut for new albums ..
