Cosmic Psychos

Making their return to Darwin, three years after a raucous show with the Dune Rats, the Cosmic Psychos are back to put some steam into your Dry season. John McKeering aka Mad Macka spent a few minutes with Off The Leash for an interview just like the music they make – blunt and fast.


What can you remember about your last Darwin show? 
It was a lot of fun. 

What's the band been up to since that last Darwin visit? 
We have been to Europe, played around Australia and released a new album. 

The new album is Loudmouth Soup, have you got a favourite track off the album?
Probably ‘Too Dumb to Die’ and ‘The Last Stand.’

Has there been a crowd favourite off this album? I'm guessing ‘100 Cans of Beer’ and ‘Too Dumb To Die’ might be popular? 
We haven’t played either of them but ‘Feeling Average’ and ‘Better in the Shed’ go all right. 

The music you guys make still hits a sweet spot for Aussie punk/garage rock lovers –but it's not something that many other Aussie groups are doing these days. Are there any outfits that you are excited to see or listen to that are doing something similar to the Cosmic Psychos?
The Chats are good. I like Total Control and I also like the Southern River Band from WA – the singer is a crack-up.
