If Couchmaster did one thing, it was cement The Bats as one of New Zealand's great bands.

Alongside that, this 1995 release, which has now been re-mastered by bassist Paul Kean, sees the band exploring and experimenting with the folkish-psychedlic pop they have become internationally renown for.

Couchmaster, their sixth album, shows a band that is far from resting, with tracks such as the excellent "Afternoon in Bed" - a song so perfecty balanced, so perfectly The Bats. Robert Scott's wistful lyrics and guitar/vocal hooks are all accompanied by brilliantly crafted songwriting that is always trying something different. Whether that be the electronic howls on 'Chain Home Low' or Woodward's lead vocals on 'Shoeshine', Couchmaster is an album full of intelligent pop music that refuses to sit still.
