Happy New Year Nuts!!

2012 was one amazing year! Come visit us on Twitter (@thewallnuts) and catch all the lovely New Years wishes being shared as the clock turns for folks across the globe!

As we all ring in 2013 in hopes of yet more success for Wally and his collaborators, lets take a look at some of the awesome favorite original images taken by nuts during the 2012 tour dates, and some of the additional Social Action Projects that were recently donated by nuts to local charities!

We’ll be back on Wednesday with more! Happy New Year to you all!

Friday Flashbacks on an Amazing Year

2012 has been mad wonderment for Wally’s career! Let’s look back on some more reflections on a record and album that defined Gotye in new ways!

Break-Time Here We Come!

It’s that time of the year for festivities of all kinds, and a little more time spent with family and friends. The nuts will be on holiday for the next week, so here’s a boat-load of goodies to keep you busy while we imbibe copious amounts of hot beverages and festive treats in honor of the season. We’ll be back with more on 12/27 so our time away will be brief!

Don’t forget to check out our recent interview with Save Me vid animator-extraordinaire Peter Lowey!

Also, our intransigent and generally un-festive mascot Wallffles the Irascible Kookaburra decided to attempt some manner of greeting in honor of the holidays. Enjoy his humorous and vexatious attempt at merriment!

Cheers to you and yours from the nuts!

Wally also checked out some toys in Sydney via Fairlight Instruments.  Perhaps we’ll see that electro-dense album some of us are drooling over the thought of…….

Some cool reviews of the last Gotye show for the massive 2012 world tour have posted recently, and the nuts have been busy too! We continue our Toasty Nuts social action project with local donations of cozy Gotye-inspired goodies to shelters and need-based agencies across our nutty globe! Check out nut April and Nutmin Cyndi making the season bright! And our in-house nut photog-extraordinaire Audra has graced us with the updated edits from her shows during the Us tour!

Back soon! Cheers!

One Hell of a Ride!

Wow-2012 tour is over! Sydney had their magical fun last night with Wally, crew and just slightly comical special guest Bertie Blackman, seen creeping about backstage in her STIUTK costume. Gotta’ keep it interesting when a tour ends, right?!

Bertie sports the footie-look and Wally donned some vaguely feline ears for their rendition of “Somebody”

 

Check out some recent chats with Wally, as he reflects on a massive year of unexpected album success and the challenges and expectations it brings, including how he would revision Making Mirrors in retrospect!

Here’s an great article for more looking back on 2012 with Wally: Gotye on Gotye

The nuts are continuing our Toasty Nuts Social Action Project #2, with nut Mary and Mum Nut Paige sharing their donations! Tis the season to be givinanlovin’!
