He held on to it for several years before discarding all the copies. He did not want ANY copies to leak out in order not to be defined by this type of music he didn't think was good enough. Hans did another cassette only release under his Kozmonaut alias. It came out in 1988 under the name "Hyko". It was pressed in even lesser quantities.
Same story, Hans discarded all the tapes as well. It seems like this tape has not surfaced to this day. The reason why everything is written in German is because it was Hans' take on Kraftwerk's music, which he was a huge fan of (some Kraftwerk samples can be found on "The Mann"). In 1990, Hans and Peter Ziegelmeier had several releases as Kode IV. Hans Schiller died in 1994 of HIV/AIDS. 2) "Los Angeles has become a cesspool of redundant and boring music.
No danger, no soul and definitely a conveyor belt of artists who all sound and look the same...not so with Kozmonaut. Kozmonaut plays loud, plays soft and keeps the mystique that is missing from music in this day and age. Combining a mix of Queens of the Stone Age, PJ Harvey & Nick Cave...Kozmonaut is a dirty mixture of distorted guitars, moody vocals, Pink Floyd bass lines and drumming that you can feel. They're not messing around and if you can't hang with unpolished, raw, loud music...then this band is not for you."
