Writings of the Fibbers

"The Majic Isn't Happening" by Leyna Marika P. Very funny article from Ben Is Dead 1994. From Lord Ouch's web space.

"Clam Blow Tour Spiel" by Nels Cline. A tour diary from Mike Watt's home page.

"Shinebox Tour Diary" by Nels Cline. Another Watt tour diary with a lot of Fibbers content.

"Putting the Opera To Bed Tour Diary" is by Mike Watt's entire touring crew, including Nels. Nels mentions Carla and "supersweetie" Amy (our friend and caretaker of the Worship Center)... but someone please tell Bob Lee that Randall Hixson runs the mailing list and is not the -ahem- "Fibbers internet page svengali." No fault of Randall's, but... well!

Interviews with the Fibbers

Interview with Carla from Perfect Sound Forever by Meg Wise-Lawrence of Acorn Mush fame. Some commentary and a cyber-chat. A very nice tribute.

Interview With Carla by Silja J.A. Talvi. from the Uno Mas webzine.

Interview with Carla also by Silja J.A. Talvi This interview appeared in Rockrgrl around the time of Butch but it appears here in a slightly different form than in that mag.

Interview with Carla appeared in an Oberlin College publication in 1997. I just have to say that Oberlin is my most hated college...sorry, personal reasons that I hope to get over someday.
