Ozonokids (1997-2011)

0010487248_10

Ozonokids was a project which started as a zine distro -by then it was just called Ozono– and run from my apartment in 1997 thanks to having unlimited access to a xerox machine. As I started becoming more connected with other small music and political scenes through the 90’s the project grew to become a very modest zine distro and eventually a record distro, selling zines, tapes, records and CD’s by other small DIY publishers. In 1999 after the fusion with 1/2 of the label and distro DIY Product run by José Luis Dominguez -aka Italiano, a key figure of the city’s underground punk scene around that time- Ozonokids became a record label co-releasing the first 7″ by the hardcore band Zanussi from Valencia. People involved with the label were Italiano, Dalmau Boada, Siria Gomez and eventually Marc Molina. This format was somewhat stable for three years. During that period we released a few CD’s and records mostly local and by friends. We also set up DIY shows in the city for friends and touring bands.
In 2003 after some disagreements all the members parted ways and I kept running the project on my own. I started releasing smaller editions of a more eclectic nature. During that year I also lived in the city of Philadelphia in the United States on and off and briefly moving so the project operated from there.
After returning to Barcelona in 2005 with the help of some friends we started setting up the Cap Sembrat festival which existed until 2011. A silk-screening studio was set up as well, which we used in order to print posters and record sleeves between 2006 and 2010.
A bit later, in 2008, I opened a small shop and studio space called Ozonokids Studio which operated as some sort of showroom. The space also hosted a few shows and presentations. It lasted exactly one year and it was closed in 2009.
