All-time fav fruit-looper! CT Powerpop from 1980 - not the NZ poppers from a few years later!
from the label:
That the Bats came from that era and didn't suck is an amazing fact du jour. And, for the record, these Bats came and went long before the like-named New Zealand group even formed (and then fluttered into their own cave of obscurity). The Bats from New Haven, CT comprised three songwriters and this near perfect single that melded New Wave, Ventures noodling, well-meaning but misplaced prog and, best of all, catchy, beautiful pop.
What's on the vinyl is well-crafted, if youthful power pop. This group is only a trio, and from their looks quite young but manages to project a full, powerful sound. Though on a small label the sound is crisp and professional. To those who wake up every morning to well worn copies of the Raspberries' "Go All the Way," this one's for you. -- Billboard October 2, 1982.
