Soviet cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin was the first man to survive human spaceflight. But there are claims that the Soviet Union attempted to launch two or more manned space flights before Gagarin, and that at least two cosmonauts died in the attempts…lost in space forever. The Judica-Cordiglia brothers are two Italian former amateur radio operators who made audio recordings that allegedly support the conspiracy theory that the Soviet space program covered up cosmonaut deaths in the 1960s. They claimed to have acquired recordings of several secret Soviet space missions that ended in tragedy and mystery.
Palo Alto and Ptôse bring you the haunting story of what the two brothers found. Comprised of new material from both bands, this split LP takes you on a journey that you may not come back from. Featuring Tuxedomoon’s Blaine Reininger on violin and art by the great Julien Pacaud.
