Rockocó, defined by its author as “A silent tribute to lives soaked in the music of his time”, was a handmade photographic fanzine edited in stapled photocopies and with a variable circulation that was distributed in record stores, in concert halls and in the Madrid Trail.

Until then, having no ISBN or legal deposit, Rockocó had always appeared as the work of an anonymous collective.

On the appendix of the fanzine added in the reissue, the author points out: “They are portraits of the first two decades of the 21st century in various cities in Spain, in addition to Madrid. We see that the pints have continued their course. And it is seen that I have followed there, with the objective magnifying glass in search of other streets of rhythm, making my way through the new growing bodies as if time were of the others. ”
