This is the 'Director's Cut' of the popular Radio 2 comedy of Flight of the Conchords.

Along with their manger Bryan Nesbitt (Rhys Darby), New Zealand's fourth most popular folk parody band attempt to crack the UK's lucrative novelty music scene with songs such as 'Frodo, don't wear the ring'. Despite the fact The Conchords did appear in Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings (do an internet search of the word 'Figwit' if you would like proof) this song was not featured on the original soundtrack, partly explaining why the band left New Zealand in the first place.

In England their musical odyssey is fraught with danger. On a sight seeing trip Bret McKenzie (guitar & vocals) has an accident at the Tower of London and is unable to honour their first UK gig because he has an arrow stuck in his shoulder. Despite their manager insisting, Jemaine Clement (guitar & vocals) refuses to double up and play Bret's guitar part with his foot. Inter-band relations are only saved thanks to the long distance intervention of Neil Finn.

Later on, the band get to support novelty act 'Dan & The Panda' (Daniel Kitson) on a tour of York.... "shall I give him the bamboo ladies and gentlemen?". Their fanbase (Nina Conti & Jimmy Carr) offer to sleep with the band, and their manager is shocked when they refuse...."The Finn Brothers would have done it". Jemaine tries to boost Bret's self confidence when he feels too thin, by writing a song called 'Bret's Got It Going On'... "why can't a heterosexual man tell another heterosexual man he thinks his booty is fly?".

This will feature outtakes and full-length songs from the duo.
