How THE OXFORD REVIEW germinated in the humblest of beginnings...

Long ago there was a frog - rather, a community of frogs, and they infiltrated the dreams of 2 separate but equally terrified children by using their amphbi-magick. Not only that, but when the children awoke, the frogs, through their hypnogogic powers of invisibility, would remain active and tactile whilst causing the children's parents to indicate (with a flourishing removal of the bed covers) that there was nothing there. But they WERE there, and this terror spawned a singular creativity /skewed perception of the physics of fauna for the aforementioned children.
They had only to meet, years later, to recognise the mutual magickal experience between them. The collective unconsciousness and the residue of said experience was the catalyst necessary to loosen a floodgate of music and sync so glorious that is almost bittersweet, if not for the intervention of muses, similar in size and shape to the childhood frogs (curiously enough), who declared that the music is not bittersweet, but kismetic and karmic.
