Golden Plains 8
Meredith Supernatural Amphitheatre
March 8-10 2014
If you’ve seen the Blokes You Can Trust doco you know this is a special story. Fronted by the World’s Strongest Man Ross Knight. Formed in ‘82 and Too-Tough-To-Die. Their “yob-rock” sound is world-renowned and a Victorian institution. Grunge royalty (Melvins, Mudhoney and Nirvana) loved them but not as much as local rock fans who have flocked to see them for thirty-odd years. Songs about local ecology (Dead Roo, Shot The Cat, Thank Your Mother For The Rabbits) are perfectly suited to the pastoral Golden Plains. Their hybrid 70’s pub rock and sloppy punk will thump through the place nicely. Blokes you can trust, down on the farm, 15 years a million beers, true decadence. Heavy. 30th Anniversary, roughly, and sounding as good as ever – this is a band at a new peak of their powers.
