Approaching a quarter century of recording and performing, New Zealand's The Bats have survived seven albums and five world tours with the original line-up of Kaye Woodward, Malcolm Grant, Paul Kean and Robert Scott intact. With a sound at the jangle/indie end of the pop spectrum, the band made significant headway in the States in the 80s alongside Flying Nun label-mates The Chills and The Clean. The 90s saw tours of the US and Europe, supporting the likes of Radiohead, Belly, and R.E.M.. Paul, Kaye, and Malcolm form side-project Minisnap, while Bob can also be found in The Clean and The Magick Heads.
