Summary

The complete BBC Radio 2 series from Perrier Award nominated duo Bret McKenzie and Jemaine Clement.

Flight of the Conchords are Bret McKenzie (guitar and vocals) and Jemaine Clement (vocals and guitar) and they are New Zealand's fourth best folk guitar-based jazz, techno, hip-hop duo.

Over six episodes 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.

When Folk meets Funny.

If you've not seen the HBO TV series let this be an introduction to the offbeat world of 'New Zealand's best comedy folk duo'. Don't worry, if that doesn't sound appealing, the combination of genuinely funny parody songs and the brilliantly awkward world of Brett and Jermaine is laugh out loud funny. If you like the boosh, partridge, the office, curb your enthusiasm etc this should appeal.

Loving the Conchords

As avid fan of the Conchords after living in New Zealand for a while I had seen Series 1 on tv, but had never heard their Radio Material. It is magical, funny and wonderful for a road trip or to brighten up the daily commute. I cannot recommend this enough, especially to fans of the tv show who will recognise the songs and characters. Although Ryhys Darby's character Murray has a different name which takes a little getting used to.

Flight of the Conchords

This has to be the most funny and original comedy series ever! Although just going to a second series on HBO, the radio show that started it all is by far the best thing that they have ever done.

Never again will I purchase a novelty bow and arrow set from the tower of London in case I too am taken on a magical tour of the London Underground!

Very funny as usual!

I love the Conchords so I cant believe it took me so long to listen to this. If you've seen their excellent HBO show then this is essentially a pilot run for the ideas that they later expand and refine to comediac excellence.

Very funny, songs are excellent are usual, I could have done without Rob Brydon as the narrator though!

Great series. Serious audio issues

Picked this up as I used to have the series on CD. I listened to the whole thing, and there's some awful static crackles in this version. Please fix this as it's a real shame to have that ruining such a good show.

love it!!!

love it, a little gem after seeing the TV and live shows. Anyone who likes the TV series will love this, similar stories but different enough to enjoy with some additional tunes in the mix

Hilarious!

A must-have if you're a fan of the Conchords. For that matter if you're a fan of comedy or music or the spoken word. Tremendously entertaining.
