As the Bates they released their 2nd 7" I See Love In Your Eyes/You're Better Than Me, finally released on new label Cactus Records which had been founded by friends. Musically they changed their style and move to an Alternative sound and in my opinion they lose a bit of class. The songs not bad but they are nothing special. But it's a matter of taste, right? After another 12" on RST Records, featuring a Goth Rock cover version of The Glitter Band's "Angel Face" they had to change their band name into Bates Unlimited due to a legal controversy with the German band The Bates. In 1994 the band split, Nemetz and Bechtloff forming Seven Ages. So overalI I can say both records are pretty ok and worth the download because they fuckin' rare (check eBay for silly offers). And I would note that they are not present on the cool Austrian compilations Es Chaos Is Die Botschaft and 'De Guade Oide Zeit' which is a shame but there are certainly reasons. Enough words, enjoy the music!!
