The Basics are an Australian band originating from Melbourne, Australia. The group was founded by Kris Schroeder and Wally De Backer in 2002, beginning as a two-piece band with Kris on guitar, and Wally on drums.

They soon took on a third member, Michael Hubbard, as a new lead guitarist, asserting Kris's presently persisting role as the group's bass guitarist. Michael eventually left the group to pursue his own solo career.

Fortunately, the space left behind was promptly filled by Tim Heath in 2004, who has remained the band's lead guitarist since.
