Garage punk infusing the very best of 60's continental beat music and American soul with the manic energy and attitude of punk bands from the 70's.

This 4 piece band, although relative newcomers to the band scene of Melbourne, has already garnered enthusiastic fans about town, swept up by the mayhem that ensues when Thee Wylde Oscars play.

From the Who to the Velvet Underground to Johnny "Guitar" Watson to Cuby & The Blizzards to AC/DC; with this many good influences it's hard for the WYLDE OSCARS NOT to come up with something that is unabashedly ROCK N' ROLL! Founding member Jay "Wylde" Wiseman is not new to the garage scene.

He was a member of seminal garage R&B acts such as The Trebels and The Hoods throughout the 80's and 90's, playing the thriving scenes in San Diego, Los Angeles and San Francisco and Seattle.

In fact, a song by his band "The Hoods", entered mythic status with its inclusion into the Rhino CD box set "Children of Nuggets", alongside garage luminaries such as The Lyres, The Stems & The Cramps amongst others.

Upon arriving in Melbourne in 2000, Jay embarked upon a musical journey (starting several bands along the way: The King Hits (with soon-to-be-members of Eddie Current Suppression Ring & Devastations), The Cheapshots & The Devil Dolls) which ultimately led to his return to his genre of origin.

Starting with the basic ground rules of "Simple - not simple-minded" he forged an alliance with likeminded stylists with similar tastes.

Although being a full decade older than the other "oldest" member, they hit it off immediately after they realised they had something obviously powerful when they play together.

Now with less than a year together they have written more than 20 songs and have performed 30 or more shows, growing stronger with each appearance.

They command a formidable live show as well as vibrant original material which mirrors their 60's and 70's influences without pandering to them, Check out their myspace site for their theme song (that's right - they have a theme song) as well as a couple of other scorchers that might have you FRUGGIN' THE HUSTLE WHILE WALKING THE DOG HITCHHIKING!
