Flight of the Conchords by Flight of the ConchordsHello, Im Rob Brydon. Join me on an exciting musical journey in the company of a band who have come to mean an awful lot to me. Theyre probably my fourth, or maybe even third, favourite novely music act - Flight of the Conchords. Flight of the Conchords are Bret McKenzie (guitar and vocals) and Jemaine Clement (vocals and guitar) and theyre New Zealands fourth best guitar-based jazz, techno hip-hop duo. In this series, we follow their attempts to crack the UK’s novelty music scene with songs such as Frodo, Don’t Wear the Ring (Magical Bling Bling); Fudafafa; Hiphopapotamus and Think About It (Think, Think About It). The Conchords have travelled the world and become one of the best-loved double acts on the circuit. Having secured the talents of Rob Brydon, Daniel Kitson, Greg Proops, Nina Conti, Rhys Darby and Neil Finn, they can - for the first time - tell their story...

Gradually, stealthily, little-by-little, a television programme has crept up on my brain; it's a show which real connoisseurs have known about for a while , but which I've only just woken up to. And now I can't stop thinking about it and giggling. Flight Of The Conchords is the name of the show and the name of a band: two nerdy, innocent and not-quite-desperate New Zealand folk musicians, played by the comedy duo Jemaine Clement and Bret McKenzie who are living in New York City, and with the help of their fantastically incompetent manager Murray - whose day job is working at the New Zealand embassy - they make absolutely no impression whatever on the New York live music scene, week after agonising week. With its low-budget digital look, quasi-real embarrassing situations, and establishing outside shots of the manager's office, it has a lot of Curb Your Enthusiasm. With its deployment of the quirky-nerdy outsider in America, it is a bit Borat-ish. The director, James Bobin, is British, and Clement and McKenzie have a comedy background which looks British: they are veterans of the Edinburgh fringe and what used to be called the Perrier Award, and they once had a show on Radio 2.
Flight of the Conchords should never have worked. Bret McKenzie and Jemaine Clement formed the duo in their homeland in and built up a loyal Antipodean following before performing at the Edinburgh festival in and What set the band apart is that theirs were actually really good. Rob Brydon narrated, while circuit favourites such as Daniel Kitson and Dan Antopolski popped up as guests to lend their friends a hand in a series that sounds like a prototype for the television series that followed. This would surely be as far as such an idiosyncratic act could go.
