Redjetson was a UK-based post-rock band. In 2002, they released a self-titled single on Steinbeck Records. They followed this up with a second release in 2003, again on Steinbeck Records. During 2004, the band toured extensively including a tour with Youthmovie Soundtrack Strategies, whom they released a split 12" with on the Drowned In Sound Recordings Label. In January 2005, they released the album 'New General Catalogue' on Drowned in Sound Recordings. The album collected the two songs from the previous split 12" along with a further nine songs including re-recordings of songs featured on their first two releases. They followed the album with a single of 'This, Every Day, For The Rest Of Your Life'. This also included making a music video. The band finished off 2005 by supporting Bloc Party at Brixton Academy and ¡Forward, Russia! on several dates around the UK.

By April 2006 the album had received a European release on the Talitres label and the band followed this up with a tour with Leeds-based band iLiKETRAiNS. The band played a handful of gigs demoing new songs. They also supported Hope of the States at KoKo, played the Truck Festival in Oxford and went on a mini tour of Ireland. A double A-side single 'The Unravelling'/'Racing in the Mire' was released on 16 April 2007 by Try Harder Records. The band played a gig at the 'Luminaire' to celebrate the release with support from 'Cats and Cats and Cats'. Redjetson disbanded in July 2008. Their posthumous 2nd album, "Other Arms", was released on 20 April 2009 by Gizeh Records.
