Cosmic Psychos

Melbourne/AUS

Diese Band werdet ihr nie in einer der großen, sterilen Arenen hierzulande erleben. Nee, echt nich, da wollen wir sie auch nicht sehen. Seit den 80ern trümmern die Australier alles weg, was ihnen vor den Bagger kommt. Der eine nennt's Punk, der andere nennt's Garage. Wir nennen's: Voll auf die Zwölf!


Hier ein paar Zitate von Fans der Band:


“The Cosmic Psychos were always kind of drunk”
BUZZ OSBORNE – MELVINS

“Live it was always so huge and powerful”
EDDIE VEDDER – PEARL JAM


“I think the Cosmic Psychos were a band that was highly influential on the Seattle so called grunge scene. I know that Kurt and Nirvana were fans, they played shows with Pearl Jam. Even thou the Cosmic Psychos never had the commercial impact or success that those bands had, they were still a major influence on them, and I think a lot of it had to do with the spirit and the sound of their music.”
BUTCH VIG – Producer (Nirvana – Nevermind)

“I have 5 frames of the greatest record covers ever. In the top 3 is the Cosmic Psychos when they’re standing on the Bulldozer.”
EDDIE VEDDER – PEARL JAM


“The thing about the Cosmic Psychos and that era in general for those of us that lived through it, it was a real celebratory era. It was about partying. And those guys, at least the record we put out, “Go the Hack”, kind of defined that mood and that space better than any slab of Vinyl I’ve heard since."
JONATHAN PONEMAN – SUB POP!
