WIFFLEFIST was a collective of experimental audio and visual artists that crept into the North Carolina music scene in 1990. We churned out a few homegrown physical media releases on CD, vinyl and cassette (plus quite a few live performances) before becoming mostly inactive by the late 1990s.

2020 marks the 30th anniversary of this shortlived creative entity & the Dec. 1990 release of our very first offering titled "A Wifflefist Compilation", which was available in very limited edition on cassette tape only (including a 7" x 7" booklet).

More will be added to this site in the coming months. Got any photos, video, or audio of WIFFLEFIST events? If so, please contact us.
