With influences ranging from obscure 60's beat bands, Soul, Chicano R&B, and 70's punk, Thee Wylde Oscars mix these elements into a potent cocktail that's drop you to the dance floor - it is essential, shredding rock n' roll - danceable and wholly modern. Starting off with Keito Wylde's clarion call to rock - this 12 Song CD, 'Right, Yeah' features 9 original written by Thee Wylde Oscars. Thee Wylde Oscars CD rips into a haze of music styles: 60's garage punk inflected 'Why Do We Have to Meet in the Dark', anthemic power pop in 'All for Naught', soul-tinged cover version of Johnny Guitar Watson's 'Big Bad Wolf', and straight ahead punk with the edgy 'Live Wired'. Included is an beat-ified version of Velvet Underground's 'White Light, White Heat' and The Pack's German punk classic 'Nobody Can Tell Us' as seen though a Small Faces prism. All of this with a signature sound that can be hard to pigeon-hole with a broad brush. Founding member Jay 'Wylde' Wiseman is 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. Starting with the basic ground rules of 'Simple - not simple-minded' he forged an alliance with likeminded stylists with similar tastes. They called themselves Thee Wylde Oscars to pay homage to their favourite historical figure (albiet altering it somewhat); a brilliant tragic figure.
