June 1996 - December 1998 (a requiem)

For those who have chosen to read this I would like to inform you all that as of December 28th, 1998 Ribbon Fix has called it quits. This is largely due to personality conflicts within the band among other things. The straw that broke the camels back was a telephone conversation between Andrea Camp and myself regarding playing a show with the Blue Ontario. Though, the fact was that we had not practiced nor seen each other in well over a month, we both had conflicting views about playing the show. The tone of our conversation had said everything about both the status of our playing the show as well as how we felt about the band and each other. As sad is this is in my personal life, I am, both, relieved and hopeful. It provides me an opportunity to pursue new avenues and directions. Ribbon Fix had lead a turbulent, yet prolific and beautiful life. We had released what we feel is amazing music and had played some wonderful shows with some of the best bands playing music within our genre. We had met some gifted and beautiful people everywhere we went and I wish to thank them. One may expect many things to come from our break-up. Andi may, herself, continue with her piano endeavor Brunette and I with an acoustic thingy called the Super String Theory and possibly a new band already in the works. As for Mike, I would like to continue working with him as well. It was good of us to stop and I wish the members the best of luck in whatever they choose to pursue from this point on. Thank you.

At the Blue Ontario/Great Divide show that night at Circa Here in Oakland, Mark was convinced by some friends to play a few acoustic songs in the absence and demise of Ribbon Fix. The seated crowd was completely attentive while Mark played from the edge of the small stage. If this performance is any indication of what lies ahead, there is no doubt in my mind that Mark as well as the other two members of the band will go on and continue to make great music.

“I stayed with Mark Lynn in Oakland for a week. I met Justin from Current the first night I was in California and we started a band together called Hero with Mark Bianchi from Indian Summer, which I got kicked out of like three or four months later (laughs). I got booted, but Mark Bianchi knew Mark Rodgers (Shroom Union, Super String Theory), who was looking for a bass player for his band Ribbon Fix. He calls me from out of the blue and said he and Mike were looking for a bass player, so we practiced and played two shows and then I quit because I wasn’t too into the music and it was kinda weird being in a band with complete strangers. A couple weeks later I was having second thoughts because I didn’t really have anything else going on and maybe that I didn’t give it a fair chance and I called Mark back. Well, they already had Brian Gathy (Amber Inn, Crumb, P.S. Burn This Letter) playing bass, but Mark was totally cool and said they were actually thinking about having two bass players, so we did that and it worked out pretty good.”

Re: EVERYONE!!! - ribbon fix!!!

I know this may be late in coming but for those who are still interested,

here's some information about Ribbon Fix...

Ribbon Fix formed in 1996 and broke up in 1998, reformed for a brief stint in 1999 and called it a number

of reasons shortly thereafter. The members went their separate ways and have remained such since.

For those who are still trying to track down a copy

of "The Gathy Years" 6 song 12" EP, you're in luck. I happen to have a box full of them just sitting in my closet. If interested in a copy, all I'd ask is

to be provided postage. I will not charge for a copy.
