  1. Batch

    Batch was the second album by Orange County pop punk band Big Drill Car, which was released in 1991. It was the last studio recording with the classic original line-up, and their last album distributed by Cruz Records. The album is widely considered to be a great follow-up to their 1989 classic debut CD Type Thing, with many fans actually citing it as the best album Big Drill Car made. Like many Big Drill Car albums, Batch is currently out of print.

Performance of dreary tasks all at one sitting. “I finally sat down in batch mode and wrote out checks for all those bills; I guess they'll turn the electricity back on next week...”
