The Hired Guns

The Hired Guns were formed in Melbourne, Australia in 1996, with the original line-up of Adam Spellicy (The Dumb Earth), Chris Willard and David Creese (both from The Dumb Earth and Lizard Train) and Anthony Paine (High Pass Filter, Snout and Black Cab). 

The band was initially conceived as a side project from the members' other esoteric musical concerns, and evolved from their mutual love of late 60s/early 70s psychedelic country rock, and an interest in the burgeoning alt.country movement.  

After releasing a debut split 7" single with Sydney band The Dearhunters in 1999, on the Steady Cam label, The Hired Guns added multi-instrumentalist Timothy Deane and Jane McCracken to their ranks and released their first full length album, "Between Here & The Night", on Laughing Outlaw Records, in 2002. 

After a lengthy hiatus during which the band underwent line-up changes and the members followed their other musical pursuits, The Hired Guns returned to the studio in late 2008 (with new drummer Kjirsten Robb replacing David Creese), to record their second album. 

'Flyin' ', CD single, release November 2009.

Album 'You Know Something' release 9 October 2010.

Album 'Golden Home' release 15 November 2014.
