19th Nov 2001 - A REVIEW!!
Subject: Bats, Fusion @ Fuel Bar, Dunedin, Saturday Nov 17, 2001
It's hard to believe a band can keep going for so long and continue to
get better, but the Bats can. With every year a Bats gig becomes an
even more treasured gem. Chords, melody, rhthym, singing, who would
have thought it could sound so good? It's a joy to see how Kay's
confidence as a singer has built, handling lots of lead vocals and
Minisnap sounding excellent. The new material sounded great, Bob's new
song about September 11 in particular. May their litttle Bat fangs
continue to shine bright and sharp, forever more, amen.
Special mention to Thomas Bell for providing an excellent mix. Go
Jay and Brett played a great set. Brett played some banjo! Good to see
the crowd arriving early for their set.
