Wally DeBacker aka Gotye teamed with Eddie Perfect and Tripod to record the Reels song as Gotye with Perfect Tripod. Gotye is also a SLAM ambassador.

SLAM is raising funding to cover the costs of continuing the organisation through crowd-funding company Pledge Music.

“Up to now, SLAM have been operating via the goodwill and generosity of volunteers with zero funding. All the artwork, web building, project managing, publicists time, photography, policy writing, bus fares, coffee, printing, distribution, postage etc have been donated,” he state.

“We need to raise up to $10,000 per state per year to help cover operational costs and future sustainability. If you marched in the rally or wish to see us continue our work your $10 will go a long way”.

Grab the limited edition Gotye with Perfect Tripod vinyl edition at Pledge Music.
