Legendary Australian Punk Band, Cosmic Psychos, Subject of a New Documentary

Cosmic Psychos: Blokes You Can Trust, a documentary recounting the three-decade spanning career of Australian punk legends Cosmic Psychos is in the works and is looking for help via crowd-funding site Pozible.

If you aren’t familiar with Cosmic Psychos, let’s just say the group were (and to an extent, still are) dirty, drunk, sloppy and loud—qualities that we all know make for the best bands. Audiences outside of Australia, especially in the US and Europe, first started getting wind of their stench when Sub Pop issued Cosmic Psychos' second LP, Go the Hack, in ’89—most likely the result of scene-kings Mudhoney and the Melvins singing the band’s grungy praises. Legendary Minneapolis noise-rock label, Amphetamine Reptile, also got on-board the psycho train, releasing a few LPs by the band back in the ‘90s. Sadly, despite sousing crowds all over the US and Europe for years, the scummy, dangerous sound of Cosmic Psychos never bubbled up much from below ground

Cosmic Psychos: Blokes You Can Trust  promises to tell the band’s sordid tale through interviews with sole remaining founder, bassist/singer Ross Knight, and former drummer Bill Walsh, alongside Q&As with well-documented fans; Eddie Vedder, Buzz Osborne, Mudhoney and others. But that’s only if they can raise some cash. Check out the film’s trailer, as well as a few of Cosmic Psychos' most gonzo tracks, below and then head here to see how you can help get the movie made.
