Blokes You Can Trust
For thirty 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, BLOKES YOU CAN TRUST tracks the band's adventures along the rock and roll highway, from downtown Kyneton in rural Victoria, into some of New York's finest sadomasochist parlors and the Seattle grunge scene where they were highly influential. With appearances (and party tricks) by Eddie Vedder, Mudhoney, The Melvins, Butch Vig, Hard-Ons, L7 (to name but a few), this doc 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 loss. As well as the colorful journey of a band, BLOKES YOU CAN TRUST reveals the personal story of founding member and frontman Ross Knight musician, world champion weightlifter, the farmer with a bulldozer fetish and dedicated father. This is an extraordinary tale of Australia's most unique cultural ambassadors, who sing about dead kangaroos, pubs and schnitzels. It's a tribute to a country lad, a family man, still rocking and rolling, when most have retired to the couch.
