Mr. Fibby hail from the delightful eighteenth century seaside village of Canberra, and crash around the countryside presenting their uniquely obnoxious blend of music and theatre. Telling tales of fox spirits, dead men, broke heart gypsies and the blood red Moon, Borracio (cello), Seraphina (violin), Zavi (guitar) & Noimporant (stories) confuse and delight audiences with their enchantingly depressing faux-fairytales of love and death. They have been described as ‘volcanic’, ‘full of sound and fury’, and ‘an inappropriate Act to stage in Robertson, on a Sunday afternoon, after a children’s dance performance’. In 2011 they played with Amanda Palmer (The Dresden Dolls) in a belltower, during a lightning storm.
Mr. Fibby are supported by artsACT, Community Radio 2XX and Big Wednesday Studios
(there will also be listening parties in Canberra at Smith’s Alternative Bookstore for every show!
