Smoke Notes

This re-issue follows on from The Bats latest album ‘Free All The Monsters’ - out now on "CD" & "LP".

The 1987 debut album from New Zealand indiepop pioneers The Bats, Daddy’s Highway has now been re-issued and remastered on 12” LP. One of the outstanding New Zealand albums from the 1980s, from the lo-fi pop hook of ‘North by North’ through to the gentle drone of ‘Tragedy’, Daddy’s Highway displays a quietly powerful sound that immeditedly tugs you in. There is a quirky energy throughout - such as “Block of Wood” - that also glows with shimmering harmonies, whispered vocals, reeling basslines and a sweet sense of despair that is as catchy as it is thought-provoking.

5. Had To Be You
6. Daddy’s Highway
