FANS OF THE CONCHORDS

MESSAGE BOARD

Is it a nature show? - the Name of the Band

New Zealand's fourth most popular guitar-based digi-bongo acapella-rap-funk-comedy folk duo.

More of some of the same stuff in this thread:

Hmmm... Finally, then, what exactly is a Conchord, and how does it fly?

[image] : There is not a good answer to that. We should invent one.

[image] : I had this dream about this V formation of Flying V guitars that kind of looked like Concorde, and I was telling Jemaine about it, and we just ended up with Flight Of The Conchords, spelt like a guitar chord.

[image] : It's kind of like The Beatles, how they put the 'beat' with the 'les'. We put 'con' with 'chord'. So we're up there with some pretty big bands who have also used pun names.

That was from the Front Magazine interview last year, yet Jemaine said the exact same thing about the Beatles in the BBC liner notes. Did he memorize it or did the journalist add those sentences from the notes? [image]

I remembered that I read it in some article but I couldn't remember which one. [image]

Thanks, Jessica! [image]

Their choice of band name
[image] ‘We had the name before the terrible Concorde crash, but we were worried that people would think it was a joke based on the tragedy. Which it had nothing to do with.’
[image] ‘I think some people did think that. But we soldiered on with it.’
[image] ‘We just didn’t play in Paris.’

Just dropping another quote in here:

Can you tell me how you came up with the title "Flight of the Conchords"? What does it mean?

#jem# : We always avoid [answering this], but it's actually the toilet at the frat we lived at. It was a Conchord. That really invites some bad headlines for reviews, doesn't it? Please don't take advantage of that.

Link is here. I can't point you to the thread on the board for the interview at the moment, as it is hidden. :) The interview in the thread is longer than this one here, but I can't find the original source with the longer one.

I can't wait for the new sub-boards. I think we need a smiley which is a mixture of this #excited# and this #clap# , something like:

One big Polish film portal is reporting about Bret writing new songs for Muppets 2 and they say he's from "Fly Of The Conchords"
