Album Info

This recording will be of some interest to you if you count yourself as a fan of New Zealand's indie pop godsends  (who by the way are still in business).  While Electric Blood aren't the Bats per se, they were a notable precursor given Robert Scott's involvement.  Scott of course is the mouthpiece for the Bats, and fills the same roll on Electric Easter, trading vocal duties with his brother Andrew Scott on a couple of numbers. 

Electric Blood kick started their career in 1977 in Dunedin, NZ.  A number of homegrown cassette albums were released during the '80s, including this one in 1984.  It was reissued ten years later on CD on the small American imprint, Beehive Rebellion.  If the liner notes are to be taken at face value, Electric Easter was knocked off in the span of just one day in April '84, tracked live in a rehearsal room.  Easter is demonstrably tone-deaf, lo-fi noise pop, but proves to be increasingly melodic as it progresses.  Dare I say "Help Me" and “Boot Your CarвЂ� are genuinely catchy?  No out-and-out revelations here, but there's nothing to dissuade fans of the Bats or for that matter, Kiwi rock aficionados in general.
