Bibio: From Wet Flies to Alternative Music

Alternative music artist Bibio takes his name from an black and red Irish fly that imitates a common species of Diptera, used by he and his father to fish for rainbow trout. “With a nod to happy childhood memories fishing with his father on the Welsh rivers, parallels can be drawn in name to this quietly spoken artist and purveyor of this joyous summery music, where startling melody lines unexpectedly emerge out of grainy, glorious lo-fi.” Bibio’s real name is Stephen Wilkinson.
