Heard It Here First – The Bats

Heard It Here First – The Bats

Heard It Here First celebrates the fringe, challenging and brilliant musicians who you would have heard about first on RDU throughout the years.

The Bats are a glorious anomaly. They have endured for three decades without a line-up change in an industry where bands crash and burn without leaving the practice room.

There are also few acts in the Flying Nun canon that inspire descriptions like sweet, gentle and lovely; but their intelligent, folky/country inflected jangle pop has regularly been framed in these terms – which isn’t to say that they don’t have a darker side.

Heard It Here First is proudly brought to you by AudioCulture.co.nz – The noisy library of New Zealand music.

‘Alternative Radio: RDU98.5FM since 1976’ is on at Canterbury Museum, Rolleston Ave until August 14.Click here for more information about the exhibition.
