Cosmic Psychos have been a mainstay on the Australian punk scene for more than three decades.
Their humour, wit and sarcastic nature, coupled with what can only be described as Australianisms found within their music has made Cosmic Psychos the ultimate feel good party band, a measure of success that is sure to continue with the band’s upcoming album Mountain Of Piss which will be released n July 9.
Guitarist Macka joined HEAVY for a frank and open (as if you would expect anything different) discussion on the album and much more.
We start by asking if Mountain Of Piss is what fans would expect or if, in fact, Cosmic Psychos and their music has mellowed with age.
“No, no melow,” Macka exclaimed. “I actually think there’s bits of it which are probably as flat out, if not more flat out – maybe not in tempo,just with the riffs and beats and stuff. It’s pretty flat out. There’s enough of that on there to keep people happy and there’s a couple that are different but they come from other areas that are pretty pure so that works out too.”
To date only the single Sin Bin has been released, so we put it to Macka if that song is a good representation of the rest of the album.
“Some of it,” he teased. “There’s three or four that are like that one but then it goes into stuff that would hopefully make Chad Morgan proud. It sort of changes up a bit in different parts of the record. I’s come out really well.”
In the full interview, Macka discusses the rest of the album and some of the songs on it, the importance of maintaining a sense of humour with your music, the Australian colloquialisms that permeate the music of Cosmic Psychos, their streamed concert on Thursday July 1, the upcoming tour and more.
