The Batfish Boys - 12"s
The Batfish Boys formed when Simon Denbigh was booted from March Violets. On the 'Swamp Liquor' 12" you can hear a little of the March Violets influence. 2 tracks of this 12" also appear on the 'The Gods Hate Kansas' LP.
The other 12"s show the progression of The Batfish Boys to a more traditional rock sound. For many it is a downward spiral. Decide for yourself.
The Batfish Boys released another LP called 'Head' in 1986 and later shortened their name to Batfish for another album 'Batfish Brew' in 1989.
Track 2 of the 'Crocodile Tears' 12" originally by The Chocolate Watch Band.
