Fiber (NJ Female Fronted Punk Band)

Fiber existed in central New Jersey between 1997 and 1998 and delivered amazing female fronted pop/punk with a punch. The band consisted of Vocalist Paula Lemme, "Shower With Goats" bass player Mike Nichols on Guitar, Jeff Gelt on Bass, and Dave Brown on drums.

The band was virtually unknown outside of central New Jersey, despite touring the East Coast with "Shower With Goats" in 1998. They made one professional recording, a 7 song, self-titled demo tape which was released in small quantities, mainly to friends and people who signed their mailing list on the SWG tour.

After you listen to this recording, you'll be left wondering why Fiber never got signed to Fat Wreck Chords, or Epitaph. I know I did.
