It was Julian Cope's idea. "Someone should start a Krautrock club," he said. So we did.
After a launch party in 1996 with Timothy Leary's best mate and original Cosmic Joker Brian Barritt, the Kosmische Club quickly established itself as a place to hear some of the most forward-thinking, truly independent and downright amazing music ever made.
Cherished by the open-minded, loved by the chronically energetic, and only occasionally visited by old men with beards, the Kosmische Club's remit slowly began to include the best danceable, experimental music, non-chin-strokey electronica, and classic underground tracks.
