Version 4

Fanfarlo were conceived by Simon, while he was taking shelter in a forest from a particularly heavy snowstorm in Sweden. Inspired to move to London to form the band, he quickly found allies in Justin (bass) and Leon (trumpet/keyboards) when playing small gigs around the city. Mark filled the vacant electric guitarist’s role, and Fanfarlo’s electronic backing track was ceremoniously destroyed when Amos was enlisted to complete the rhythm section. After the launch gig of their first single, Talking Backwards, in late 2006, the violinist Cathy was wooed over banana smoothies and the line-up was complete.

Their second single, You Are One Of The Few Outsiders Who Really Understands Us was BBC Radio 6’s single of the week, and they’ve released the double A-side, Fire Escape / We Live By The Lake (on White Heat records), Fanfarlo will be playing festivals in the UK throughout the summer and recording their debut album.

Fanfarlo’s latest single is another double A-side “Harold T Wilkins” with Sleeping States “Call Me” on Felt Tip Records.
