Bret McKenzie and Jemaine Clement met in 1998 at Victoria University of Wellington where they were studying film and theatre.
They founded a music duet, Flight of the Conchords, in New Zealand, mixing music and comedy. They started a radio show on BBC in 2004 before debuting their television series on HBO in June 2007.
After one season of 12 episodes, Flight of the Conchords has a growing reputation for their humor and the quality of their music. After 6 songs recorded on “The Distant Future” in 2007, their first real album contains a selection of the 13 songs from the TV shows. From indie pop to covers of Pet Shop Boys or David Bowie, they propose a various and really funny production.
“Foux du Fafa” is the first song and, maybe, the most popular: do you remember your French class at school? Parlez-vous le francais? Essential, essentiel.
