Young Docteurs are an original Punk/Psychedelic band

Young Docteurs rose from the Canberra punk scene in 1978, they moved to Sydney and immediately made an impact with their unique blend of psychedelia and punk.

Performing alongside many influential bands of the time including New Race (featuring members of Radio Birdman, MC5 & The Stooges), The Stray Cats (Runaway Boys Tour 1981), Los Angeles band The Gun Club, The Birthday Party, The Saints, X and Elvis Costello.

Young Docteurs with their individual distinctive sound drew the attention of many including members of The Hard Ons, INXS, The Church, The Sunnyboys, Hellmen and Happy Hate Me Nots. The band signed a multi-record deal with Festival Records and they  were approached by LA scenester, Kim Fowley, renowned American hustler/svengali ( Former Manager of The Runaways). In 2013 Spanish band Red Nukes paid tribute to Young Docteurs song Buying Freedom by recording and releasing it on 45.

In 2015 original members Paul Hayward (guitars) and Chris Shakallis (vocals) were joined by the rock solid rhythm section Darren Spiteri (bass) and drummer Imants (Immo) Freimanis. In June 2016 Young Docteurs are releasing a new album, a heady concoction of material from their new, cryptically titled album, Beginning at the End.
