Baz McHat is the pseudonym of Barry Newman founder of The Wilde Club and Wilde Club Records. 'Baz' simply is a common nickname for those called Barry. 'McHat' derives from the Fall song 'Kicker Conspiracy' , wherein Mark E Smith intones "Pat McHat the very famous sports reporter is talking". Thus a ridiculous pseudonym was born. As an added bonus for Mr Newman, it's useage immediately ridded him of the above Fall lyric which had become a rather deeply entrenched earworm!
