In depth story on Toy Love written from eye witness Terrence Hogan’s perspective. He was an integral part of the Toy Love family. Lots of great photos too.

This song reminds me of holiday singalongs in the car... Summertimes for us in New Zealand and Australia and Christmas for nearly everyone on planet followed closely by 2019! Please share and we can have a global mass singalong at midnight on 31st December. 😜 We'll be loading up some new Bats songs over the next few months of 2019 and Flying Nun are planning vinyl, CD and digital releases of what looks likely to be Volume 2 of our 1990's period. We're digging through the archives for EPs, b-sides, outakes and unreleased material. Hope you all have a peaceful Christmas. The Bats

Happy Seasoning of turkeys everyone. Sorry for neglecting all 7,159 of you. Saying that, we think a good 7,000 of you have neglected us .. Although FB are probably wanting both us and the big collective YOU to show the love by buying some boost. Let’s not bother.

Below is a message from Michael to The Bats website and a link to his anthology. Comment: Hello, I've just uploaded a music and video anthology of early 90's indie rock (true indie) and have included several of your songs - 3 of which I made videos of. I've also used the video you made of your song "Courage" and synced-it up to the cleaner, better-quality CD version. I've been a fan since '95 after hearing "Afternoon In Bed" on WFMU - a radio station here in New Jersey, USA. Unfortunately, I never got a chance to see you play live, but your songs are special to me. Thank you for the tunes. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_lGeqJTNsaQ

SPOTIFY - it has proved to be very popular on our planet as a means of listening to music. As music makers we despised it for a while as it competed with our ability to recoup costs through sales of our music. We have got next to nothing from Spotify for people use of our music.. BUT things are improving for NZ and Australian recording musicians .. AND Bats music has received millions of plays around the world. That re-assures us. We create music to share with the hope that we can invest in future recordings and tours. So please enjoy what you find of our music on Spotify, share it - and if you want to support us further invest in your very own Bats downloads from our Bandcamp site https://thebats.bandcamp.com/ And you can watch some of our videos on our website for free anytime https://thebats.co.nz/
