The COSMIC JOKERS is not really a band but a reunion of several German musicians and personalities from the 70s psychedelic and esoteric philosophies. producer/label owner Rolf Kaiser-Ulrich had begun to explore psychedelia more seriously after the success of this music in the US and UK. He began a sub-label called "Kosmische-Kouriers" to sign new acts in Germany. It was meant to be an extremely open project with different musicians playing on each other's records from the get go. Much of it was in keeping with the protest movement in the youth counter-culture of West Germany at that time.
