CURIOSITY IN STOUT SHOES was a short-lived (one issue?) fanzine put out by Christina Madonia in Austin, TX. Very soon thereafter she married one Tom Carter, moved to Houston, and became the Christina Carter whom we know and love from Charalambidies and solo recording fame.

She put together a fanzine very much in keeping with the earthy, ethereal, poetic and dissonant nature of her music. We were in touch pretty frequently back then – by letter, kids – we didn’t have no internet – and I was sorta stunned after pulling it out of a box last week to even see myself thanked in this issue from about 1991, for providing encouragement. Hey, I didn’t do nothin’.
