'Keep your friends close' is the 3rd long-playing release from Australian band The Basics. Composed in Australia's western desert, and recorded between Melbourne and London (at abbey road studios), the album demonstrates a further evolution of the band from retro-rockers to one of Australia's best-loved outfits. In the tradition of crowded house, hunters and collectors and the triffids.
