Friday Fancy… Flight of the Conchords
There are a variety of things in this world that I love. My mother for example, or that selection pack of Green and Blacks chocolate (have you tried the butterscotch – it is delish!) However, very few can compare when it comes to the genius that is Flight of the Concords, these guys have my complete and utter devotion. Put simply – they rule!
With their witty and often acute observations and subtle commentary on a variety of issues, FOTC have broken some pretty new ground in comedy. Their humour is a unique blend of bizarreness, the ridiculous and intelligence, all brewed to perfection. Throw in some slamming tunes and you’ve got yourself a whole heap of awesomeness.
The thing that makes them so great is that despite the stupidity of their lyrics they are in fact amazingly talented, comfortable with a variety of instruments and cross a range of musical styles. In their show you see them parody just about every defining musical artist from David Bowie right down to R Kelly, capturing the signature sounds of each genre along the way.
FOTC are by no means new and I thought I’d pretty much devoured every clip of them on Youtube many moons ago. (You know how it is; you discover something, get really excited and proceed to exhaust it to the point of sensory overload.) So imagine my surprise when, whilst having a little FOTC renaissance, (one needs to keep one’s love burning strong) I stumbled across this gem the other day. To end your working week with some quality LOL time and quite simply because we at TMC also love to do a little something special for the ladies out there I thought it my civic duty to share it with you all. Please Observe.
