'Blokes You Can Trust is one of the best rock docos of the past decade' - Rolling Stone Australia
Featuring interviews with: Eddie Vedder (Pearl Jam), Mudhoney, Donita Sparks (L7), Melvins, Butch Vig, Steve Albini, Tom Hazelmeyer, Hard-Ons, Jonathan Poneman
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, Blokes You Can Trust tracks the band's adventures along the rock and roll highway, from 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 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 a few) this doco is a full frontal assault on the senses. Loud, rugged, and entertaining Blokes You Can Trust shows all the Psychos highs and lows, riches and rip offs, line up changes and loss.
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.
