David Tibet is a British poet and outsider artist who founded the music group Current 93. He was given the name "Tibet" by Genesis P-Orridge. The Hobyahs is a fairy tale collected by Mr. S. V. Proudfit, in Perth. In the tale a man, woman, girl, and little dog live in a house made of hempstalks. The Hobyahs came for several nights, shouting "Hobyah! Hobyah! Hobyah! tear down the hempstalks, eat up the old man and woman, and carry off the little girl. For several nights, the dog barked, scaring them off, but the old man was angry at its barking and cut off its tail, then its legs, then its head. Then the Hobyahs tore down the house, ate the old man and woman, and carried off the girl in a bag. They hung up the bag at home and knocked it, shouting, "Look me!" They went to sleep, because they slept by daytime. A man heard her crying and took her home, putting his big dog in the sack. When the Hobyahs opened the sack, the dog ate them all.
