Hey there nuts and fellow Gotye/The Basics fans, are you all about collecting some Wally treats?
This Sunday, for our weekly tradition of #BacktoBasicsSunday on twitter, we will have a Basic trivia contest!
The first to tweet us the answer to our Basic trivia question (tweeted via our official feed @TheWallnuts) wins a Basic and Gotye goodie!
We’ll be doing a second contest during the Grammy awards for more tasty Gotye collectibles, so watch Twitter for the action!
In the meantime, here’s some cool stuff that’s been buzzing along the wires this week!

As you probably know, Wally and the stage-gang will be back at it for a brief Asia tour this week! We’ll have a new nut posted at the first show in Singapore! Looking forward to her Gotye adventure! We’re also excited for our first video interview to drop soon, our chat with Barry Harrell, the “Somebodies” man! (see previous post or interview page on the home menu)
Here’s some lovely pics from talented photographers we’ve spotted recently (credits included)

We’re having fun chatting with Barry Harrell, fondly known as Baz, and grassroots famous via Youtube as the guitarist who shows us the way via the “Somebodies” mashup! Baz and the nuts have revisited some great little articles about the project that integrated 120 STIUTK covers by fans and fellow musos across the globe! Check these out, with our new pal Barry front and center!
Soon we’ll publish our Wall-Nut interview with Baz, where he will answer fan questions and tell us all about his experience with internet fame and making pals with a pop-music master!
