For 30 years, the Cosmic Psychos have blazed a trail of empty beer cans and busted eardrums around the globe with their quintessential Australian drawl and pounding punk rock songs. With the founding member Ross Knight finding inspiration on the bulldozer he drove around the family farm in country Victoria, the band forged a unique sound and image that resonated with punk rock fans everywhere. Iconic label Sub Pop released their second album when the band fell into the ‘Seattle’ scene of the late 80’s amidst the likes of Pearl Jam, Mudhoney and The Melvins.
Never quite finding the mainstream success of their grunge counterparts, the band managed to tour heavily in the USA and Europe thanks to a large and devoted fan base. The Cosmic Psychos were notorious for their ability to drink pubs dry, earning them a reputation that resonated around as a warning – “Never drink with the ‘Psychos”. But it wasn’t all shits and giggles!
Cosmic Psychos – Blokes You Can Trust follows the bands colorful history, as well as the enigmatic and entertaining founding member Ross Knight, to get behind the man who rides the bulldozer.
Farmer, father, weightlifter, and front man. His story alone, and told from his perspective, is a unique portrait of an unlikely and revered rock ‘n’ roll bloke.
