Flight of the Conchords charm Wembley
By Laura Davies
My jaw still hurts. I laughed so hard last night tears were streaming down my creased face. It was Flight of the
Performing live at Wembley Arena, â€˜New Zealandâ€™s fourth most popular guitar-based digi-bongo acapella-rap-funk-comedy folk duo,â€™ caused the jaw ache with their hilarious show. Awkward chats in between songs such as The Most Beautiful Girl (in the Room) and Pet Shop Boys satire Inner City Pressure, taken from their hit TV show and 2008 record, confirmed their cult status.
In the TV series (airing last year on BBC4) the duo â€“ Jermaine Clement and Bret McKenzie (playing fictionalised versions of themselves) â€“ move to New York to try their luck at being rock stars. They arenâ€™t successful. But find themselves in impossible situations along the way, such as playing gigs in lifts and aquariums to their only fan (and stalker), Mel.
There were no shortage of fans here though, it was a sell-out, with innocent-looking Bret, with his wild hair and even wilder beard, charming the audience with his performances of Busdriver Song, Too Many Dicks on the Dancefloor and Robots (â€™The humans are dead, we used poisonous gases, and we poisoned their assesâ€™).
While dry, self-depricating, 1970s throwback Jermaine was on equally top form, seducing us with Business Time, crooning,
â€˜In the bathroom brushing our teeth, thatâ€™s all part of the foreplay, I love foreplay, then you go sort out the recycling, that isnâ€™t part of the foreplayâ€¦ but itâ€™s still very important.â€™
Highlights of the evening were the rap rip-off Hiphopopotamus vs Rhymenocerous, Iâ€™m not Crying (â€™Itâ€™s just been raining on
my faceâ€™) and Same Girl - which had the ecstatic crowd singing â€˜epileptic dogsâ€™ in a mass sing off. I bet thatâ€™s the first time
thatâ€™s ever been sung at Wembley.
Just when I didnâ€™t think I could laugh anymore, the Conchords played their homage to Ziggy Stardust, Bowie in Space. Stepping up from their stools, where they had been perched
for most of the two-hour set, the pair ripped off their clothes to reveal silver catsuits, chanting â€˜Receiving transmission from David Bowieâ€™s nipple antennae.â€™ The Thin White Duke would
Hyperactive friend Arj Baker, who plays Dave in the series, made a welcomed appearance (and supported the duo) but unfortunately there was no cameo from band manager Murray (comedian Rhys Darby) or superfan Mel (Kristen Schaal).
Not to worry, thoughâ€¦ I was sitting next to a real-life Mel, whoâ€™d obviously dragged her very own Doug (Melâ€™s patient husband in the series) to Wembley to watch her drool over Jermaine and Bret. I canâ€™t blame her. What is it with funny men in retro shirts?!
