Vetivers Creations

Cypher An online comic by Clyde Kim (sorry, no gratuitous sex)

Tales of the Vetivers The erotic, thrilling adventures of The Vetivers when they are not on stage, by Clyde Kim. Loosely based on the Lord of the Rings.

Why Wouldn't You Send It? Clyde's movie, based on his own life. Former Vetiver Jimmy March is in it, as well as 37 gellons of fake(?) blood. Look for it under a similar name.


Friends of The Vetivers

Jonathan Ramsey A great singer of Irish songs, even though he's never even been!  One of the favorite opening acts for the Vetivers over the years.

Meep A very good band that Paul met when they played at Adrian's Cafe.  Buy their CDs after you buy the Vetivers CDs!

Mechanical Art Shannon and Dan have their own unique store, make sure you visit their web site!

Marte Nathalie She lives in Oslo, Norway and mentioned The Vetivers on her web site, which used to also be named after the song "Find The River."

Mad Penguin Bloke Thing Clyde met Andrew "Rew" Parsons from Norwich, England, through the odd subculture of comics on the internet. He's got a nice web site featuring great animated comics starring a penguin!

The Trombone Troubadours Featuring Chris Widga, who did the trombone solo for Paul's archaeology song Dig Me Up. Catch them next Christmas at a nursing home near you (if you live in Nebraska!)

UCC Mountaineering Club Paul's big thrill on Sundays if he wakes up on time.

Martin Fuchs Paul's friend from Switzerland who is an expert on cheese and can make delicious snacks from types of underwear!
