Handsome Young Strangers is a strange name for an Aussie folk-punk band, it doesn’t have the ring that I would expect for a bunch of colonial punks – it sounds way more lizard lounge or the like if you ask me. But like follow Crocodile Hunters (is that too much of a cliche?) The Currency, Mutiny and Jack flash, HYS mix Australian folk standard such as Augathella Station and Lachlan Tigers with their own originals, all done in a Stones-ish meets crusts folk punk around the camp fire with the XXXX cracked open. G’d stuff indeed mate.
