The Cosmic Jokers was a side project of Rolf Ulrich Kaiser. Most of the musicians didn't even know they were in a band until the albums started showing up at record stores. The Cosmic Jokers albums were recorded at psychedelic jam sessions in Dieter Dierk's studio under the instigation of producers Rolf Ulrich Kaiser and his girl friend Gerlinde (Gille) Lettmann, and later remixed and edited by Dierks, Kaiser and Lettmann.
