Ozma - Live on KUCI - January 24, 2001 is the second live album by American rock band Ozma. The original recording previously circulated among fans, but was remastered by Daniel Brummel for its release on the music platform Bandcamp. The cat puns throughout the show are from a toy that the band had brought with them.[1]

Album Art

Artist Dylan Green, a prominent member of the Ozma fan community whose artwork had been adopted by the band previously, was hired to create the album art. Said Green:

Continuing on the themes of "historical space travel" and "time capsule" of the first release in the series, I upscaled and chopped up a panoramic image of the band provided by @daniel.brummel into 5 Instax-style Polaroids (which may or may not be period-accurate, but I'll call it artistic liberty), each featuring a member of the band!

Originally, I had assigned this recording to have a yellow color scheme, with Daniel suggesting that something with some more contrast would work better earlier in the series, even considering having it black before we settled on a nice royal blue. As requested by Daniel, I visually incorporated an allusion to the audio clip of a toy cat saying, "I think you're purr-fect" on the recording, ultimately taking the form of a big ink stamp of a Maneki Neko cat!

Lastly, I incorporated some ink stamps featuring various Ozma references and easter eggs (tooth gang represent) and a handwritten tracklist (courtesy of my dad!)

Thank you again to @daniel.brummel, @praysecna, and @losingsand for being great collaborators and letting me contribute to such a cool project![2]
