Interkosmos biography
Founded in Austria in 2008

INTERKOSMOS are another SULA BASSANA (Dave Schmidt) side project which formed in early 2008. According to the band name they call themselves the new intergalactic psychedelic space jam band. Interestingly two differing line-ups were appointed.

Drummer Bernhard Fasching and Dave Schmidt (bass, guitar, electronics), better known as Sula Bassana, are the core members. The Austrian crew comprises Sam Greil and Andi Hofer where the 'international' ensemble includes talented Spanish space guitar caballero Sergio Ceballos.

INTERKOSMOS meet from time to time to participate on festivals without having a very solid structure. The project have produced one eponymous album in 2009 which is full of spacey improviations headed by Ceballos' fantastic guitar work.

Review by Rivertree
Special Collaborator PSIKE Team & Band Submissions

4 stars Sula Bassana is a workaholic, isn't he? INTERKOSMOS is just a relatively new project compared to the other ten ... wait ... probably twenty music collaborations he has collected altogether in the meanwhile - and not to forget his solo excursions! The funny thing is that this band has two different line-up's depending on where they meet. Dave has formed a crew for the 'home matches' in Austria and an international one which recorded this excellent album in 2009 among other things.

This is a very trippy production with songs around the ten minute mark. Spanish native Sergio Ceballos offers top-notch spacey guitar work here and Sula provides well placed synthy additions besides his solid bass appearance. The songs have a floating gliding behaviour with ups and downs in waves - really well done! This is all based on cosmic themes - some of them are intiated by recitatives. It all begins with a Liftoff - speaking of the famous spaceship 'Stardust' - announced through board loudspeakers and derived from the prosperous sci-fi series about astronaut Perry Rhodan and his adventures. I remember that I was thrilled at an early age too.

I've listened to many space rock productions in the meanwhile and INTERKOSMOS add some new points indeed. They create a special mood - basically relaxed, laid-back. The guitar work is playful, accentuated, sensitive. Heavier excursions are rare - the spaceship doesn't get into martial star wars here. No hurry - we are on a friendly suspense-packed journey into the unknown. So I want to highlight Hypnotizer for example - the title points to the behaviour - hypnotiv bass and drum work, spooky synths and guitars which are not from this earth for sure, soaring, sawing, riffing, echoing - wow!

Probably Edentrip represents the dangerous aspect of the cosmic journey which should not be denied - a weird trip where they go into a spin for some time seemingly losing the orientation - well, finally reaching a new orbit led by heavy delay effects. Within the next songs they are alternating between gliding moments and uptempo excursions and finally even offer a fine groove. As you can expect from productions where Sula Bassana is involved, this is provided with superb audio quality on top of it! A must have for space rock fans - 4.5 stars!

Thanks to rivertree for the artist addition. and to Quinino for the last updates
