    CD made of black plastic with ridges on the top, meant to look like a tiny vinyl record with a donut label in the center. Comes in a cardboard sleeve featuring psychedelic artwork by Jack Bride, inspired by Dara's dream of a blissed-out unicorn pony listening to our music in the form of a donut on a toy record player in a majestic wonderland. the back has our Donut Heart logo, designed by Rah's awesome flatmate Marion Barry. DIY printed insert with lyrics, insights, thank-yous, and love.

lyrics

Batley
round and around you go
outside my windy-O
Batley
I spot your silhouette
outside the tenement

tracing
the perimeter
of the courtyard
just above the roof line
Batley
nothing sinister
just a flying mouse
not a stinking vampire

one, two, three, ah ah ah ahh…

Batley
round and around you go
outside my windy-O
Batley
I spot your silhouette
outside the tenement

ultra
sounding frequencies
to echolocate
all the tasty insects
eat up
all the little bugs
so the stupid fly
don't come in my kitchen

straining
my diurnal eye
I observe your flight
in the waxing darkness
I'll see
you tomorrow night
at the same bat time
on the same bat channel
bat channel, same bat channel
same bat, same bat

I’ll see you…
straining my eye…

Batley
oh, my Batley!
