The Bats
(New Zealand)

The Bats have been producing their own brand of straight-ahead indie pop-rock since the mid-1980s, experimenting and evolving, but never straying far from their distinctive head-bobbing rhythms and chiming guitars. Twenty-five years later, they're still flying. Their 'North By North' is the theme song for Australian political satire The Hollowmen and recent album The Guilty Office has garnered praise following its worldwide release.

It's hard to go wrong with The Bats ... prime examples of that much-loved Kiwi pop jangle. EXCLAIM! (CANADA)

First on stage: Lawrence Arabia, aka New Zealander James Milne, delivers sweet melody and lush orchestration from his recent release Chant Darling.

After Party: Ghost Drums plus guest
Ghost Drums is the solo project for Perth-based musician Pete Guazzelli. Having drummed in countless bands in the metro area, Pete decided to build his own machine from all the parts laying around the house. Firstly, there's the trustworthy drums – gold-sparkle, 60s Prems. Then there's the pedals and toys he's built up over the years to create spazzy little sounds. Add all that junk-percussion that's been clogging up the spare room, plus some 80s synths and some mics and a desk and you're pretty much there. Inspired by a blend of acoustic-experimental-electronica, Ghost Drums provides a lo-fi soundtrack to the multi-million dollar film that is your life. Howie B, spacey soundtracks, mum, Morricone and Aphex Twin's drukqs are all found inside if you look.
