Clownish Vancouver group The Evaporators, fronted by Nardwuar The Human Serviette, have released their Ogopogo Punk for streaming on Spotify.

“I’ve had the pleasure of being interviewed and featured in some of the most incredible publications but the most entertaining and interesting interview I’ve ever had was with the one and only Nardwuar,” says Ali. “During our interview he gave me the original program to a Muhammad Ali exhibition fight in Vancouver and several records.
