Oxnard in SupervolcanoEdit

When Squirt Frog and the Evolving Tadpoles played in New York, Justin Nachman found a positive review of the band in The New Yorker's "Night Life - Rock and Pop" section. It said, in part "... bring a musical sensibility that mixes Cowboy Bebop with Bebop Deluxe from Oxnard, California, to Manhattan." Aside from the disgust the band felt with being identified with the grimy, working-class town of Oxnard, Rob Ferguson didn't think you could mix animé with a 1970s British band. Instead, the writer was probably trying to be cute.[1]
