Cosmic Psychos: Blokes You Can Trust

1h 30m Documentary, Music, Australian, Australia 2013

A documentary about the iconic Australian punk rock group, the Cosmic Psychos.

For 30 years, the Cosmic Psychos have blazed a trail of empty beer cans and busted ear drums around the globe with their quintessential Australian drawl and pounding punk rock songs.

Fronted by Ross Knight, this film tracks the band’s adventures along the rock and roll highway, from downtown Kyneton in rural Victoria, into some of New York’s finest S&M parlours, and the Seattle grunge scene where they were highly influential. Nirvana were Psychos fans, they even played shows with Pearl Jam. But perhaps their biggest reputation was their ability to drink pubs dry, with word quickly spreading as a warning to other touring bands, “Never drink with the Psychos!”

With appearances and party tricks by Eddie Vedder (Mudhoney, The Melvins, Butch Vig, Hard-Ons, and L7 - to name but a few), this doco is a full frontal assault on the senses. Loud, rugged and entertaining, Blokes You can Trust shows all of the Psychos’ highs and lows, riches and rip offs, line up changes and losses. An extraordinary tale of Australia’s most unique cultural ambassadors, who sing about dead kangaroos, pubs and schnitzels. A tribute to a country lad, a family man, still rocking and rolling, when most have retired to the couch.
