A dear friend intro'd me to 'Wild Boys'. A short tv series from Australia (where she's from) & 1 of the outlaws sings "I am a wild & fearsome boy" & tells the listener via the song of his pride in his gun(!) cos "deadly is its aim". They kill loads of people & eat possum stew w/o realising. It's great. Anyway was wondering if anyone knows of said song,/theme song?? The "wild & fearsome boy" song certainly sounds like a real song, but I searched finding nothing. any ideas??

Well, Google leads me to a singer called "Machine Gun Kelly" and a recording of the song Wild Boy. So, I tied that to Ned Kelly and that tied me to Australia.
And then I listened to the song and guessed that the song just couldn't be connected to the request.
Or is it?
There's also a 1984 single titled "Wild Boys" by Duran Duran that was a #1 hit in Australia.
But I suppose that's not it, either.
The Wild Boys TV series ran in Australia from September through November, 2011 - 13 episodes in all. All 13 episodes are available on YouTube. Anybody know what episode this song was in? Somebody want to binge-watch and find the song?
