Based in York (UK), Red Cosmos is the solo project of Kim Tortoise. Kim was previously a member of The Gods Themselves with Art Moran. They made two super-limited cassettes of novelty tunes and five-minute fade-outs.
This is Red Cosmos' first long-player There And Back. It includes (amongst others) a choraldelic ode to the legendary Psych re-issue label Bam Caruso Records (St.Albans Colour Explosion), a high-voiced love song sung by a kidnapper (You Said You Loved Me), and a track featuring Kim Tortoise's father-in-law reciting a poem about the fate of Iron Stone Miners in Yorkshire (Iron Rush).
