Here is another new piece of music seeing the light of day in a live recording for the BBC. This time it’s on Gideon Coe’s show, much of which is spent as a tribute to Lou Reed and well worth listening to. But should you want to skip straight to the Fanfarlo goods, we’re on at 2 hours and 47 minutes into the show.
Whilst listening, watch this animation of a banana going through an MRI scanner:
Last night we played 3 new songs on BBC radio 6 as a guest of the continually supportive and legendary Marc Riley.
A great conversation ensued about the themes of the EP and the coming album. It felt good to get some of that shit off our collective chest.
Good sound, good company and good vibes.
If you wanna hear some songs from the forthcoming album you can do so here starting at 48 min and 15 sec:
Halloween is coming up and we have a special treat for you. x
A piece of music really comes to life once the very sound is etched into a vinyl disc and you hold it in your hands wrapped in specifically chosen artwork.
This particular artwork is a piece by the wonderfully talented musician/artist Alexander Tucker. It’s a piece called ‘Algae Age’ from a collection of postcards he released on Strange Attractor Press, which incidentally, is run by Fanfarlo’s UFO chasing/crop circle making friend Mark Pilkington.
Algae Age spoke to us straight way. Or to be more specific, the characters in the collage spoke to us. They said “Hi. We are you. We are what you evolve into. If, of course, you decide to return to the sea”
We will approach this question in greater depth in next years full length LP.
Maybe the sea isn’t such a good idea?
