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!

March Madness continues…..little wonder image A took this bracket, it’s too muppety to miss!

Back again soon!

And the winner is...A!

Nuts for The Holidays

Hi Gotye nuts!

Congrats to Lisa who won the Gotye portrait contest and donated to a Wally-chosen charity! Good on ya, Lisa! Thanks again to Robin for her work-she won the Golden Nut along with Magda for their awesomeness in the community for November & December!

Robins lovely portrait goes to Lisa! Thanks nuts-this was a great social action project!

There’s even more awesome tee, hoodie and sticker designs now up in our storefront! All proceeds go to the fund to help members attend events and connect, especially international nuts who may need a little extra help to make it happen! Thanks to everyone who has already purchased, and to the amazing artists whose designs are highlighted!

The basics played Adelaide last night-credit to the RockWiz Team for the pic below!

Another big cheers to NFSA for sharing their conversation with STIUTK director and visionary Tash Pincus. Without her brilliance, a hit video may not have been what it is today! Read/Listen to it HERE!

Hope you’re all having a festive holiday season so far, nuts!

A Wealth from the “Wally Vault”

We love an especially good find from prior years, and occasionally one of our members comes across a cache of amazing Gotye treasures! Check out these fantastic show-shots from lifeonstage.net, found by one of our German nuts Stephanie!

Just a few short hours remain to bid on Gotye’s fave children’s book “Boy”-signed and all-to support Australia’s Monkey Baa youth theatre company! Catch it while you can!

We’ll be back with more soon, for now, how about we wrap-up with another congrats to Wally for that Triple J Radio nod for both Hearts a Mess and STIUTK as the #12 and #9 spots in the Hottest 100 of the last 20 years!!!

Wally’s pick for a top-of-20-years fave? One of ours, too! We feel ya’, cheers fellow Gotye nuts!

From the Wally-Vault

There’s that sound of singing crickets again! That means Wally is back home and getting more much-needed rest, and we’re digging through the dusty shelves to bring back some Gotye faves!

Don;t make it weird, wally. We're just bored and looking for some nostalgia! You know how it is! ;)

More Musical Time-Warp & March Madness

Wally is still at it at the NMC, mucking-about in musical history and producing the seeds for the next Gotye sounds! Watch the NMC’s twitter feed for frequent updates (see links on last week’s posts for other sources!)

Getting funky triggering on a coffee tin. That's Wally for ya.

We know news on the web can be spurious at times, but check out this comically erroneous article about Gotye, the man rolling-about in freshly minted millions every morning before breakfast! Hilarious:

Gotye is a “People with Money”

Ta ta for now nuts! Back again soon!
