At Day at the Salon with These New South Whales

Buffing and shining with Sydney's premier punk outfit.


Sydney punk outfit These New South Whales have (hopefully) projected themselves onto your stream of consciousness in recent times, thanks to the release of both their debut album, You Work For Us, as well as their Spinal Tap worthy mockumentary series, The Life We Chose.

But being a rockstar ain’t all beer and skittles, and life on the road can really wear you down. So to help the guys unwind before heading out on their upcoming national tour, we decided to take frontman Jamie and guitarist Todd out for a quick buff and shine at our local nail salon, and shoot the shit about all things These New South Whales.
