Just in time for the new series of Flight of the Conchords I decided to fork out for this EP, which is actually quite expensive for what you get. It is a small but perfectly formed example of the funk provided bty this hilarious Kiwi double act. Jermaine and Brett combine perfectly, they look geeky but on record their voices are superb, surprisingly funky, soulful and the lyrics are absolutely superb. For me this album is not as good value as the Flight of the Conchords CD which features some fo the same tunes and many more, but these songs are great and really worth a listen on either album.

I was shocked to see only one person had written a review for this Masterpiece of Comedy. I found out about these guys named Bret McKenzie and Jermaine Clemant, a few years ago before they got they're own show on HBO. I was channel surfing and saw two grungy looking guys playing guitars on stage with an audience dying with laughter in the background. It's easy to understand why too, once you hear the lyrics. The song was called "Business Time" and it was played in a guitaresque Barry White kind of way. Some of the lyrics in it are; " Girl, tonight we`re gonna make love. You know how I know, baby? Cause it`s Wednesday. ... Read the complete review

I bought this CD after having seen a few episodes of the Flight of the Conchords HBO TV show, which follows the fate of Brett McKenzie and Jermaine Clement (aka FOTC, New Zealand's 4th most popular folk-parody duo), and their quest to make it big in the US. The programme charts their efforts, interspersed with songs, most of which are parodies of different musical genres. Watching the series, I was so impressed by their music that I bought the EP as soon as I discovered it on Amazon. There is also a longer FOTC album, but I wasn't sure whether the songs would be as good without the accompanying videos from the TV show, so decided to go for the EP ... Read the complete review

This album has some of the best songs of the Flight of the Conchords. The Flight of the Conchords are New Zealand's fourth most popular folk parody band and with this album they could even make it in to the top three. Unfortunately this album only has 6 songs but you are compensated by the fact that each song is incredible. My favourite song is business time, a song all about sex ,its an amazingly funny insight in to the sex life of Jermaine Clement, one of the band members. The song sounds a bit like Barry White and the best line is 'you sort out the recycling, its not part of the foreplay but it is a very important part of the process'. Another song is ...

If you don't know who Flight of the Conchords are then you are not alone. They have silently snuck up into British consciousness through the BBC radio and BBC4 route - this instantly seems to isolate them into the category of high-brow comedy. However, the songs of the New Zealand folk-pop-rock-soul-funk-rap duo are absolutely hilarious. If you have ever heard their radio show or seen their HBO TV show then you will instantly recognise the classics on this EP. As a taste of their main album from the HBO show, this gives three finished songs and three tracks from a live show which are even funnier than from their TV show. It kicks off with 'Business ...
