Bats have arrived at Punakaiki and settling into our amazing accommodation overlooking the Tasman sea and starry skies. Looking forward to waking up to beautiful views and checking out the Taiko Festival site activities tomorrow. We may miss the early morning yoga but apart from the superb walks, pancake rocks etc there’s lots more to choose from including tree planting, mural painting, market stalls, kids programme and a night of great music.

1995 cassingle for Afternoon In Bed - forgot all about those “b-sides”. Who’s got this as a cassette or CDEP? And is anyone wanting digital copies of these songs?

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
