NINE YEARS OF FOLKING OUT WITH
FLIGHT OF THE CONCHORDS!
What the folk? Folk the what? Lost you already?
Read on to discover more..... This site is about Flight of
the Conchords. No, really it is.
The musical comedy act comprised of Bret McKenzie and Jemaine Clement who, in their own
words used to be "New Zealand's 4th most popular guitar-based
digi-bongo acapella-rap-funk-comedy folk duo". Now they
are "the almost award-winning fourth-most-popular folk
duo in New Zealand.". This website explains almost
all you never knew you needed to know about them.

A BIT OF WHAT THE FOLK! HISTORY
What The Folk! grew out of humble beginnings.
It began life back in August 2002 when I met 'The Guys' in
Edinburgh during the Fringe Festival and saw them perform
as Flight of The Conchords. Small venue, a cave/cellar and
only about twenty people in the audience. Great performance,
made me laugh and I was hooked.
By the time I arrived back home a few days
later the idea was in place to set up a fan site to spread
the word on all things Conchords. And that's what I have been
doing ever since. What The Folk! was the first site on the
internet about Flight of The Conchords and has grown into
a good resource of information for all things F o The C related.
It has expanded and we (for I am no longer alone
in my Conchords mission) now have lyrics, tabs, newsletter, forums, a
fan section, reviews, pictures, articles, background info on Bret and Jemaine and the most extensive
collection of Conchords material available in mp3 format out
there (but none ripped from their CD) plus some video clips and many other things.
And, lucky us, exclusive material and question and answer
sessions with Bret and Jemaine.
So I hope you enjoy it here. I am but a
humble fan who made it her mission to keep this site as informative and as fun as possible for all fans of the Flight
of The Conchords.
Many thanks :)
