  1. It\'s unfortunate, yes, but this coming year will probably see the first
  2. generation of newbies among which NOBODY knows what Fibber Magee\'s is.
  3. Forgetting about \"Bacchus\", I shall refer to Fibber\'s as if it is
  4. still standing.
  5. Fibber\'s is dark. Fibber\'s is dank. Fibber\'s sells alcohol. Fibber\'s
  6. plays excellent music. Fibber\'s plays it loud. Fibber\'s plays it very
  7. loud. Fibber\'s smells. Fibber\'s is sweaty. Fibber\'s is on Parnell
  8. Street. Fibber\'s should be a part of everyone\'s college experience.
  9. Fibber\'s have a baldy DJ. Fibber\'s has a beer garden where you go to
  10. give your beating eardrums a rest and cool down a bit. Fibber\'s has big
  11. smelly rocker guys who look like they\'d kick your ass at a moments
  12. notice but when you talk to them you realise they are all wusses at the
  13. end of the day. Fibber\'s has goths.
  14. Fibber\'s, Is No More.

  17. Located just off O\'Connell St, Fibber\'s is a night club that has gone
  18. through many guises. It was called Fibber\'s for many years until
  19. recently the management decided that it was time for a change.
  20. First they turned the basement into a seperate club called Subterrania,
  21. this club was totally different to anything Fibber\'s (or the customers)
  22. had seen before. People wearing Adidas were invited into the building,
  23. later emerging with the bulging eyes and pallid skin normally associted
  24. with those folks unfortunate enough to have been captured by a cult and
  25. been injected or administered large amounts of drugs and subjected to
  26. rythmic mind control music for many hours. Eventually Subterrania was
  27. closed down when the police raided it for evidence of a sinister
  28. underground cult called \"neeeeah\", it was later uncovered that the
  29. members of this sinister cult would identify themselves to each other
  30. using bizzare hand signals in a similar manner to the Freemasons in the
  31. greater British empire. These hand signals varied according to the rank
  32. of the individual, initiates were restricted to simple hand gestures and
  33. wiggling of posteriors, while the higher ranking members were capable of
  34. performing bizzare and elaborate and potentially hypnotising movements
  35. with their hands. The night of the raid was a dark one for the Gardai as
  36. they lost several of their members months later when the desire to wear
  37. tracksuits and shave ridiculous patterns into their heads. The cult was
  38. obviously not eradicated, it has since gone underground and has not been
  39. heard of since.
  40. Once the management had been cleared of charges involving luring leather
  41. clad psychopaths into Subterrania to be used as muscle bound thugs for
  42. the cult, they decided that a change of image was in order, the upper
  43. floor was renovated and the usual customers were moved down into the
  44. deep dank bowels of the basement where the full horror of the time spent
  45. by the cult in the basement was revealed. Many customers never recovered
  46. and to this day can be seen strapped to tables in mental hospitals
  47. murmering \"not right, too bright, too bright\" and being operated on.
  48. Eventually the upper floor was reopened, much to the delight of the, by
  49. now, traumatised individuals. As one of the first people to enter the
  50. new club (now known as \"Bacchus\" after the Greek god of wine) I was
  51. able to witness the looks of horror on the faces of those poor people.
  52. Glass was evident and unbroken, there were working lights and the
  53. toilets (previously a source of pride at their decrepitude) were clean.
  54. The customers retreated downstairs again and never returned, except when
  55. the downstairs bar was REALLY busy and the doors weren\'t locked. It was
  56. peaceful for a while, but it was not to last. A club, called the Back
  57. Gate was connected to the Fibber\'s beer garden, previously a place of
  58. solace and relaxation. Evidently the staff and customers of the Back
  59. Gate were born in a field, or at least sprung from the loins of
  60. something in a field since they were devoid of the DNA strands in their
  61. genetic structure responsible for closing doors. As a result, the
  62. harried and lost Fibber\'s customers were regularly treated to the
  63. dulcet tones of Boyzone and Five.
  64. Generally speaking, the customers like to remember Fibber\'s thusly,
  65. some particularly deluded individuals still see it like this :
  66. Upstairs we had the bar and the pool tables. You came in through the
  67. front door and to your left were the window tables while to the right
  68. was the bar. As you walked further into the bar there were cubicles,
  69. rife with scarred grafittid wood, while to the left were the pool
  70. tables. And at last you came to the dance floor, where the only light
  71. was from the glow of the beer and the occasional working light bulb in
  72. the ceiling.
  73. Downstairs was the smaller bar,it hasn\'t changed very much except with
  74. the introduction of proper tables and tiles on the floor. There is a
  75. dance floor, smaller than the one upstairs, and there was a bar, but
  76. there are more tables there now.
  77. There was a beer garden, and it was good, and then it was a building
  78. site, and that wasn\'t so good. Now its a beer garden again, but seeing
  79. as how you can hear the utter SHITE being played in the Back Gate next
  80. door, it isn\'t all that relaxing any more.
  81. There has only really ever been three complaints from anyone in
  82. Fibber\'s
  83. `1. The drink is vile, to which is said "generally yes, live with it"`\
  84. `2. The music is crap, to which is said "fuck off somewhere else then" (althought occasionally the argument about goth music being moaney wank and metal being incomprehensible shit ensues)`\
  85. `3. There are several fat bastards dancing violently out there, one of them broke my arm, to which is said, often with a tear in the eye "ah, but thats what makes it Fibber's"`
  86. Fibbers, as this writer recalls, had a wonderful friendly atmosphere (as
  87. long as you weren\'t in white jeans or Adidas gear) awful drink, and
  88. incredibly violent music. It was perpetually dark and the lighting was
  89. enough to give a brick an epileptic fit. You\'d have to have experienced
  90. it to know what i\'m writing about here, but while each element of the
  91. club sounded absolutely horrible (crap drink, violent fat people, etc)
  92. it was one of the best, nicest places you could go, to meet some of the
  93. finest human beings in Dublin.

  96. As an aside here, there is a mailing list in existence which is also
  97. called fibbers. It originally was centred around the club, until they
  98. went and \"renovated\".
  99. fibbers (small f) the list is now a reasonably happy and busy
  100. alternative-geek-and-sort-of-a-community-list, like redbrick.babble with
  101. slightly more relevance. It\'s now subtitled \"Discussion list for
  102. Fibbers regulars, irregulars, and others\".
  103. It\'s mentioned here cos a number of [Brickies](/Brickies "wikilink")
  104. were instrumental in making the list what it is today - most notably
  105. Toaster, Wishkah and Silk, aided and abetted by Carrot and others.
  106. If you\'d like to join the list, mail
  107. fibbers-subscribe-request@listserv.heanet.ie with any message at all.
  108. The list is mid-volume, and run mainly by gothwalk (me) in my more
  109. public guise as Drew Shiel.
  110. \--gothwalk
  111. It still exists(fibbers, not the list) it\'s full of emo kids though
  112. these days. Twiggy and tulean tend to hang out there.
