Founded in 2001 3) Ambient space music duet that released one well-received album, "A Huge and Silent Place", in 2000, before breaking up.
The album is still in print, and is sold by one of the band members. 1)The band was formed in September 1995 by Ryen Slegr (vocals/guitar), Daniel Brummel (vocals/bass), Jose Galvez (guitar/vocals), and Pat Edwards (drums), with the later addition of Star Wick (keyboard/flute). After assembling a collection of early demos called Songs of Inaudible Trucks and Cars, the band self-released their first proper full-length Rock And Roll Part 3 on January 1st, 2000. Characterized by distorted guitars, melodic basslines, keyboard-driven hooks, vocal harmonies, and confessional lyrics, the album won the band considerable acclaim via the Internet -- Ozma was one formative success story of online word-of-mouth via Napster and MP3.com.
Ultimately, buzz surrounding the band became loud enough to reach Weezer, who would eventually take Ozma (along with The Get Up Kids) on their first arena tour in 2001. Ozma's second self-released full-length, The Doubble Donkey Disc, saw their sound branch out considerably into complex harmonies and long instrumental passages in mocking homage to prog- and classic-rock. The first half was united by Russian instruments, melodies and allusions, while the second half was more frenetic and attempted to briefly spotlight each member of the band - another tenet of classic rock. In 2001 the band signed to Kung Fu Records, owned by Joe Escalante of The Vandals. ...show less
