New Zealand Artist: The Bats
Early in the 1980's, Robert Scott was playing with The Clean and sharing a flat in Christchurch with Kaye Woodward. Robert taught Kaye some of his songs and also played once or twice with Paul Kean (ex Toy Love bassist) in 'Thanks To Llamas'.
The 3 played together a couple of times at parties as The Percy Taiwan Band until they got together with Malcolm Grant (The Bilders) on drums. With this line-up they decided on the name The Bats and played their first gig at the Empire in Dunedin on New Years' Eve 1982.
The Bats first debuted in the KiwiFM Top 10 on 21 December 2008 with the song Castle Lights. There are three entries by The Bats in the charts.
