Ansonia gets name-checked in the Guided by Voices
song, "Matter Eater Lad
," by Robert Pollard
. He's probably talking about Ansonia, Ohio
(pop. 1200; zip code 45303), seeing as Pollard himself hails from Dayton
. Ansonia, OH, is in Darke County
, about 40 miles northwest of Dayton, at the intersection of Ohio highways 47 and 118.
A glance at Ansonia in maps.yahoo.com is ... uninspiring.
Ansonia shares its name with a Connecticut city near New Haven.
