Just saw their concert and it was amazeballs so I just had to commemorate it with my own illustration and want to share the design with you all!…..
Flight of the Conchords is a New Zealand-based comedy duo composed of Bret McKenzie and Jemaine Clement. The duo’s comedy and music became the basis of a BBC radio series and then an American television series, which premiered in 2007 on HBO, also called Flight of the Conchords. They used to refer to themselves as “New Zealand’s fourth most popular guitar-based digi-bongo acapella-rap-funk-comedy folk duo”, however now are “the almost award-winning fourth-most-popular folk duo in New Zealand.”
They were named Best Alternative Comedy Act at the 2005 US Comedy Arts Festival and Best Newcomer at the Melbourne Comedy Festival, and they received a nomination for the Perrier Comedy Award at the 2003 Edinburgh Festival Fringe for their show at Edinburgh venue The Caves. The duo’s live performances have gained them a worldwide cult following.
And the song they sing is “Robots”.The song, also known as “Humans Are Dead”, is sung by both Bret and Jemaine. It is set in a post-apocalyptic “distant future”, humorously stated to be the year 2000, where all humans are dead and robots have taken over the world.Within the context of the plot of the show, it is the band’s first music video. Since the band has very limited funds, Murray constructs the robot costumes himself and films the video using a cell phone.
