Well, it appears that The Basics are back and sadly not with a vengeance a la Bruce Willis, but rather a more “mature” sound. I really tried hard to refrain from using that term because it reminds me of your Dad’s CD collection - but I’m talking the ‘good’ mature - like a fine, dusty bottle of wine that’s been sitting on a long forgotten wine rack in yesteryear’s basement. The good news is that unimaginative metaphor seems rather fitting since it’s been a long while we’ve heard from these 12MC favourites. Enjoy the cut and paste video from Matt Arnold and expect a super special 12MC-exclusive video with The Basics facing off The Bawdies in some super-challenging pub trivia, coming soon to an embedded YouTube video near you.
A big “thank you” to The Basics’ very own Neil Aspinall, Syms Covington.
