2019 live album. Also available on 2CD.
Flight of the Conchords are the comedy duo of Bret McKenzie and Jermaine Clement who formed in New Zealand in the late 1990s. Several years of gigging led to a BBC radio series and then an HBO TV series which ran for two seasons and generated two albums as well. Their first EP ‘The Distant Future’ won a Grammy in 2008 for best Comedy Album. They retired Flight of the Conchords at the height of their fame and continued their careers in TV and film separately although occasionally working together on numerous projects.
They reformed their original act for touring purposes and this album was recorded at London’s Eventim Apollo in 2018. The 22-track album boasts two songs edited out of the HBO special for time, “Carol Brown” and “The Most Beautiful Girl (In the Room)”. Fan favorites sit alongside seven new songs premiered during the duo’s “Flight of the Conchords Sing Flight of the Conchords Tour”, including the previously released “Father and Son”. The other new songs are “Summer of 1353”, “Stana”, “Seagull”, “Back on the Road”, “Bus Driver”, and “Iain and Deanna”.
