Basics ‘get back’ to London

The Basics have made their triumphant return to Abbey Road Studios and London, some 5 years after their last stint for the recording of the lovely and heart-rending “Keep Your Friends Close” in 2009. Here’s some awesome updates on their adventures thus far, and of course stay with us on Twitter for more frequent goodies!

Back in 2009, for KYFC:

The present adventures commence!

Thanks to our photoshop pro @favfra for her recent interpretation of The Basics ‘on air in London’

Wally in Space and Wall-Nuts on Instagram

In a seemingly prescient moment from his old, original website bio, Wally joked that perhaps his tunes would make it to the International Space Station’s Hot 30 countdown. As it happens, years later he shall indeed join the other “space junk” in orbit!

And hey…Wally’s been regarded highly by the UK as well! He’s still on a roll!

The nuts have ‘joined the fold’ on Instagram, we’re just rolling out, but we’d love to share some Gotye fan-ness with you all! Come join us!
