Fanfarlo Advent Calendar – the best of Posted on Wednesday 20 January 2010

For those who may have missed it, you can still explore The Fanfarlo Advent Calendar at A few highlights worth of revisiting include a performance of ‘I’m A Pilot’ in a junkyard and a cover of Tom Waits’ ‘In The Neighbourhood’ which you can watch in the Video section.

Another favourite from the advent calendar was a poem written by Thax Douglas from Austin. He’s a bit of a local legend and wrote a poem about Fanfarlo on the spot and then read it on stage in Austin before the band performed.


room for just
one more
species before
the entire
iron raindrop
over like an
metronome spinning
away as it forgets what
time was like
back there where
what is now
obviously an ark
seemed like a
hardware store
