Australian punkers COSMIC PSYCHOS changed the face of alternative rock in their home country without really knowing what the hell they were doing, or at least that's the story in the excellent new documentary about them, Cosmic Psychos: Blokes You Can Trust. For 30 years, the trio of have blazed a trail of empty beer cans and busted eardrums around the globe with their quintessential Australian drawl and pounding punk rock songs. Early cosmic adventures adventures took them along the rock and roll highway, from rural Victoria to New York's finest S&M parlors and eventually the burgeoning Seattle grunge scene, where their influence can't be overstated. NIRVANA, PEARL JAM, MUDHONEY - they were all PSYCHOS fans. Perhaps their biggest reputation was their ability to drink pubs dry, with word quickly spreading as a warning to other touring bands: "Never drink with the Psychos!" The dark, creeping "death punk" of CLAW TOE exists in a space in our brains we all have - the passing evil thoughts, the uncomfortable realities of daily reality. Reminiscent of early 80's dark wave bands (Think PIL Bauhaus, Throbbing Gristle, Killing Joke, etc.) but with a backbone set in firmly within late 70's three-chord punk rock. There's a twisted style humor underlying CLAW TOE's music that makes for an interesting juxtaposition against the band's hard rocking troglodyte stomp. Probably the scariest band on the planet right now - awesomely terrifying!
