What is he, a superhero? Probably.

Tomorrow is #BacktoBasicsSunday and you can join the ongoing #BasicsQnA and ask your Basic questions! Don’t miss it! It’s also St. Patrick’s Day for some of us, so how about a jig and a pint with Leprechaun Wally?! Cheers!m(credit to Nuthouse photoshop comedienne Francesca/@favfra)

So Much for Downtime…

Wally is around and about continuing to make drop-ins to local radio stations, and showing up on the rosters for more polls and award nominations. Seems it never ends!

He’s up for an International Dance Music Award….

He can 'drop it like it's hot' on the Red Carpet or the dance floor! C. Grammy

He’s in the Billboard March Madness brackets for best single and of course all over our own March Madness spread! Probably a dead-ringer for ours at least!

March Madness continues in the Nuthouse. No contest for Wally to win the final round....but which Wally?!

He’s been yakking it up with TripleR and 774Melbourne (podcast interview here and pics below)

Maybe there’s some sleep in there somewhere!

Back again soon! 

The Art & Music

We’ve published another Gotye collaborator interview today! Wondering about the oddly beautiful and beguiling visuals for the amazing tune “Giving Me a Chance?’ We delved into the weird and wonderful world of this clip with the creators Gina Thorstensen and Nacho Rodriguez! Check it out (& at left home menu <–)

We’re still running along with the comical fun of March Madness! Check out the next brackets in the queue!

If you missed our last #BacktoBasicsSunday there was some particular fun with an impromptu Basics Twit-terview!

We’ll be back again very soon with more! Enjoy!

A Talented Bunch

It’s no surprise that Wally is part of a circle of brilliant fellow musicians! We’ve recently been playing the tunes of Colour Bomb, brother Aussies including James, a Gotye live Oz-show band member!

Check out their most recent video for the utterly, infectiously brilliant Beautiful Parade!

Now that we’ve got that looping in your brains, check out an image  James shared with us today on Twitter of him and Gotye live-set soundmaster Lachlan Carrick working the mix on Colour Bomb’s forthcoming album! Thanks guys! We’re so excited for it to drop!

Speaking of Wally and friends, Scene recently chatted with Kris Basic and the word is there’s “still hope” for The Basics to return! We’ll hold to it, because our Sundays just wouldn’t be the same without Kris, Tim and Wally Basic!

Read the interview here and keep those Basic-lovin’ fingers crossed!

Because we all miss ya’ boys……(from article)

Wally is always such a giver, and yet another example of his social justice work can be yours to keep! Opportunity To Do is auctioning some rare and signed Gotye collectibles donated for charity. The funds go towards advocacy and programs for children, so grab a Gotye goodie and give back all at once! 

We’ll be back again soon, for now, enjoy a Gotye rocking-out with Oz’s Karnivool…because he’s so metal.

What a guy…..

Cheers nuts!

March Madness Continues

It’s been a flurry of comical fun in the Nuthouse as we enjoy our March Madness! Yesterday we posted a few of the first competitions, here’s a look at the brackets now forming from the contests!

March Madness in the Nuthouse

In spirit of a nearing season change and some (semi) quiet for Wally and co., we’re rocking the nuthouse with March Madness! Check out some of the first bracket categories, with nuts voting their faves. The leaders for the month will be the Gotye champs!

Thanks to everyone (including The Basics) getting involved in #BacktoBasicsSunday! It’s a good day for Leftovers!  Just look at all of ’em:

We’ll be back again soon! For now, how about we dress-down for a nice Wally-workout! BEU-9z2CMAA-W77.jpg-large
