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 and 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 RnB 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 and The Cramps amongst others.
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.
BTW: ''What About Me'' won Coolest song of the World on Little Steven's Underground Garage. It's almost better than a Grammy!
