Critical Error: Fruit Bats added to Archives

Fruit Bats added to the Archives at Wud Records? After all these years? Surely not!

Yes, it’s true! Two songs by the Exeter duo Fruit Bats have been added to the Wud Records Archives. You can find them as a sub-page of Critical Error.

In case you only happen to find one track there, it is because you have been very fast! We like to spread out the release times a little at SoundCloud due to the way new tracks are discovered at that platform. Fear not! Thinking About You will be released within 48 hours of The Mad Song‘s release.

Fruit Bats were Rosie Mullin on voice and Aidan Whiteley on guitar. They formed after Critical Error disbanded. Fruit Bats performed a handful of shows around the Exeter area in the late 1980s.

Rosie believes that the Fruit Bats wrote five original songs. Two of them are here. The other three have been lost to the vortices of time and space, sadly.

Should they ever happen to reappear in such a way that we are able to bring them to you, we shall do our best. Perhaps one day, something like “more Fruit Bats added” will be a news headline at Wud Records!

In other Critical Error news, Rosie recently sent us some photos of a Critical Error reunion beer that took place at the Double Locks in Exeter. We have added them to the Critical Error gallery and you can enjoy them by clicking right here.

Critical Error even jammed some songs together, with Paul Bateman playing the late great Steve Mavin’s role. Paul was the engineer for the band’s eponymous eleven-track album and a wonderful musician.

If there are any significant developments on the Critical Error front, we shall of course let you know in our News service and on Twitter.
