Synopsis

Amazon.com
Carla Bozulich is from the Johnette Napolitano school of all-or-nothing honesty, and her band cranks out a dissonant, arty rock sound spiked by Jessy Greene's manic violin. In other words: a treat for the few (including the critics who loved the '95 debut) who've heard it, and a rare opportunity for those who haven't. --Jeff Bateman

CD Reviews

Awesome, Awesome, Awesome
Justin Baumgartner | 04/24/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Words simply can't do justice to the incredible music on this CD. I'll have to say Carla Bozulich has one of the greatest voices in music and her songwriting and lyrics are both scary and brilliant. The band itself is equally able to handle the caustic punk material as well as the good old country in the middle of the CD. Just buy this already! You'll thank me later."
A very fine album indeed.
Linda C. Gerhardt | MD | 12/31/2002
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Oh, how the world need more gender-bending alt-country poetesses who know the power of a well-placed Can song. Unfortunately, after a few listens, the twisted country hootenannies start to lose their punch, but the slow dirges ("Trashman In Furs," "Butch") and the angry palpitations ("Toybox," "I Killed the Cukoo") are the songs that grow on you like moles. I'd recommend The Fibbers, particularly, to people who find themselves disillusioned with the crop of female musicians the record industry has to offer. Carla Bozulich is exactly the kind of clandestine, original, powerful voice I'm always thrilled to unearth."

"I love this album, and I have since first hearing it back in ole '97, when the world was mostly ocean. It is really, really beautiful, like a dust devil nursery. God bless the Fibbers."
