Camino al Desván, Barcelona 1983-1986

The past years have seen a number of compilations focusing on “secret” Barcelona, the underground culture of the Catalonian capital during the seventies and eighties, a time rich with innovation and revolutionary musical ideas.

History…

The name Ragazine was coined in the mid-’70s in Columbus, Ohio, as the title of an alternative newspaper/magazine put together by a group of friends. It was revived in 2004 as ragazine.cc, the on-line magazine of arts, information and entertainment, a collaboration of artists, writers, poets, photographers, travelers and interested others. And that’s what it still is.
