Gotye's "other band" The Basics is back, releasing dual albums: a best of called 'Ingredients' and a b-sides and rarities collection called 'Leftovers'.Ten years ago The Basics formed and set about writing, arranging and recording their first set of original songs. Bassist Kris Schroeder & drummer Wally de Backer (Gotye) wore their influences on their sleeves, forming a songwriting partnership that became the backbone to all of The Basics repertoire and the introduction of guitarist Tim Heath, helped crank up the energy and diversity of the bands’ sound. Now 2013 sees the celebration of the decade with the release of two incredible collections: Ingredients, the perfect introduction to new converts, bringing together the best work from each of their albums (and tracks in between) and Leftovers, a treasure trove of demos, alternate versions and unreleased tracks, giving further insights to fans into the world of Australia’s most famous unknown band. Both albums are out now!!
