This popularity persisted. In the late 1920s, the U.S. Navy's Bombing Squadron Two (VB-2B) adopted a unit insignia consisting of Felix happily carrying a bomb with a burning fuse. They retained the insignia through the 1930s, when they became a fighter squadron under the designations VF-6B and, later, VF-3, whose members and became famous naval aviators in . After the world war a U.S. Navy fighter squadron currently designated replaced its winged meat-cleaver logo with the same insignia after the original Felix squadron had been disbanded. The carrier-based night-fighter squadron, nicknamed the "Tomcatters", remained active under various designations continuing to the present day, and Felix still appears on both the squadron's cloth jacket patches and aircraft, carrying his bomb with its fuse burning.

During the 1990's, McCombs played in countless bands at various DIY spaces in the Bay Area and the Pacific Northwest until he relocated to New York. In 2002, he released his debut, Not The Way EP, on independent Baltimore label Monitor Records. On his first trip to Europe in 2003, he recorded a Peel Session for John Peel, who described McCombs' music as "unobtrusively brilliant." In 2003, McCombs released his first album, A, and that year toured with Baltimore's The Oxes as his backing band. In 2004, he performed at the UK's All Tomorrow's Parties and in 2005 released his second album PREfection on Monitor Records in the US and 4AD in Europe. In 2005 he toured with Modest Mouse. In 2007, Dropping the Writ was released on Domino Records and McCombs toured with Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti. Domino Records would release his next four albums: Catacombs (2009), which was voted one of the "50 Top Albums on the Year" by Pitchfork; Wit's End (2011); Humor Risk (2011), Big Wheel and Others (2013).
He'll be joined by the brothers Kirkwood, who have returned to the lo-fi recording and fast and loose songwriting of their youth. With two/thirds of the original line-up and all of the iconoclastic hardcore that made them underground heros in the first place, the Meat Puppets are back on the road with a new album called Rat Farm and some great shows.Phil has a great voice, which at certain times I find myself comparing to Rod Stewart while in other songs (like Slow Slung Dew) he has a voice as unique as they come. The graceful combination of violins, harmonicas, slides, bass etc. is the sign of a band who’s heart is in the right place. I’m excited to see how this band evolves and what music they can come up with, as right now they have me on the edge of my seat. Give Cat Meat a try… even if you’re a vegetarian. (That was kinda funny… right?)Cat Meat’s music certainly has a Country vibe to it, but it also has a sort of old-time Classic Rock feel as well. Despite the fact that the band is relatively newly formed, the group sounds like they have been working together for quite some time, as the songs are all quite crisp, tight, and well crafted. There’s just something about this “twang” that makes you want to pull up a chair, sit back, and get lost in the music.
