The Basics played their last show of their Sydney residency on Tuesday Night at the Hopetoun, and while they may be grateful for the rest, I’m going to miss seeing them each week; Tim’s cover versions, Wally’s voice and amazing drumming and Kris’s grooving bass-lines. They did seemed a wee bit tired, but it was revoltingly hot in the Hopetown and god damn they were tight.
Thumbs Up to: The Basics, and for covering Neil Young TWICE!
Heads Down to: Everything else, apart from the band, and Sean/Amanda/Geoff.
Their album Stand Out Fit In will be released on May 5th, but it’s out NOW on itunes.
Go and get a copy, don’t be cheap now.
