Happy Birthday Gotye

We may have had a little spesh b-day pressie for Wally this year. In conjunction with the amazing ASRC Food Justice Truck project, the nuts raised nearly $1k to donate in honor of the gracious Mr. Gotye! Special thanks to ASRC communications Director Patrick Lawrence for this amazing thank you video he sent to us and Wally!

<p><a href=”″>Thank you video from the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre to the Wallnuts</a> from <a href=”″>Patrick Lawrence</a> on <a href=””>Vimeo</a&gt;.</p>

A special thanks has gone out from Wally to the nuts and can be viewed by FB group members on the page! Enjoy!

For now…how about Kris Basic’s lil’ teaser of what’s to come for The Basics’ triumphant album return!


Back again soon nuts & friends!

Basics Back At It!

Those Basic boys just keep going! They’ve recently announced an added performance with the Into the Wild Festival in London in mid July! Follow the fest on FB for updates!

Wally is back at his philanthropic activities with the Thin Green Line Ambassador All-Star’s show on 1 August! What a class-act as always! Speaking of class…..he’s also one of the rare class of musicians who produce their own work almost entirely. Check out Tone Deaf’s review of the 7 musical magicians who take the reigns, Gotye included!

Hope everyone had a fab Mum’s day! We’ll be back again soon!
