Big Fibbers at Bodrum By Helen Grifﬁth
The Big Fibbers and their regular night The Bucket of Fun are veterans of the N16 circuit, and they’re no strangers to the Fringe Festival. This year they hosted The Best of the Bucket at Bodrum on the Friday evening of the festival. It was, to say the least, an eclectic programme, which even included an impromptu performance by a member of the audience, Paul Hawkins. There were a couple of poetry readings from Kate Langan and Jan Noble: the latter’s oeuvre was a little dark, and made all the more spooky by the dark, cavernous setting of Bodrum’s basement.
Wolfpack of One, touted on his own website as the Best Band in Britain, performed a short but great set of noisy new songs, while Joe Buzzfuzz proved his extensive knowledge of the Cathars and papal history during his set. Sarah-Jane Somerﬁeld, accompanied by a Fibber, sang songs redolent of Kate Bush – if you can imagine this – accompanied by a mandolin with an element of crazy stalker thrown in for good measure.
But great. If you feel enticed and can’t wait until next summer, then catch the regular Bucket of Fun once a month at Bodrum Café.
