Why Arizona '80s Bands like The Jetzons Are Featured in Nicolas Cage's The Frozen Ground

They may not be active anymore, but you can currently hear four Arizona bands from the '80s in a film-worthy setting. Nicolas Cage and John Cusack's new film The Frozen Ground is set in 1980s Alaska, and classic AZ groups including New Wave band The Jetzons and power poppers Blue Shoes have cuts in the movie.

The music was provided by local label Fervor Records, which has been around since 1990 itself and distributes music to TV and films, as well as manages several local acts.
