Met some great folks this time around in New York City, and this place The West Brooklyn is one of the best. Decided to do an impromptu performance to say thank you to everyone here. Sad to be leaving #heyrain Check our Instagram for the other song #lovehurts

Meeting Phil Keoghan from @theamazingrace_cbs was hands-down the 2nd greatest moment of my life (after meeting Sir George Martin). He was an absolute gentleman and thanks to Butt/Bert for the photo #theamazingrace #theamazingrice #newzealand #australia

Hello everyone - Wally here! Happy New Year to you all, I hope it's already started excellently 🥳 Here's an idea: get yourself and those around you in a good mood with this playlist of hand-picked Basics songs I myself put together on Spotify: And if you’re in the NYC area on January 16th, perhaps it will get you pumped for our upcoming one-night-only sets Rockwood Music Hall that night. There are tickets left for both 7pm and 9pm, where we’ll do two completely different sets of material. Lots of love! 🥰 Wally

This inspiring photo hides the exciting truth that our own Tim Heath has been elected to the Board of Directors of Music Victoria! Such great news for Tim and the great state of Victoria. Please join us in congratulating him!

Look at him. Look at our boy Wout, old grey dobbin. In total ecstasy. Knowing that the only band who could ever truly do justice to this song is THE BASICS 👻🙊💦 (with special guest Monty C on acoustic) Brought to you by @songroomsessions - check out the full clip on Facebook link in bio #somebodythatiusedtoknow #allothersareimitations #saturdayshenanigans

Great to hear The Espy @hotelesplanadestkilda will reopen it’s doors tonight. The place hosted us 25-30 times with four residencies, various Front Bar and Gershwin Room gigs and of course one EPIC photoshoot for the cover of 2007’s “Stand Out/Fit In”. Lots of laughs and crazy times and memories, hats off to the next generation who will stomp their own beautiful beer, sweat and love into those time-worn floors. #southside #special #theespy #classic

Hello to all our new followers and friends! Here’s a cheeky little goodie from a little while back... Tim & Kris were doing a show in Melbourne while Wally was away on a trip to NYC, and the Internet link-up failed, so he recorded this “karaoke” version of their song ‘Just Hold On’ in his hotel room to project and play along to on stage. Enjoy! See you in January NYC! #justholdon #standoutfitin #hotelroom #karaoke #synchronicity #syncup #linkup
