Young Docteurs. An original Punk/Psychedelic band from 1978 formed in Canberra, Australia.The song War Hero is a Young Docteurs song & was recorded in 1979 by the original line up of the band. Featuring Paul Hayward- guitar, Chris Shakallis-vocal, Marcus Flux- bass,Gup- drums.The photos in the clip are all circa 1979 pics of the band.

Thirty years and music really hasn’t gone anywhere.
