If you’ve been watching the (frankly going downhill rapid) second series of Flight of the Conchords you may have come across this song in the fifth episode which was directed by Michel Gondry. You may also have noticed this comedy song is very similar in sentiment to the Limerick messers’ Rubberbandits comedy club anthem ‘Too Many Gee’. The Flight of the Conchords version is called ‘Too Many Dicks on the Dancefloor’. The song is different but the idea is the same.
Before you claim blogger paranoia, the Bandits themselves genuinely believe there’s some degree of borrowing here and it’s not out of the realm of possibility. Comedian David O’ Doherty is friends with The Conchords and is a fan of the Rubberbandits. Have a look.
The Rubberbandits will be playing in Dublin next month with David O’ Doherty in the Button Factory on the 10th of March and with DJ Mek in Eamonn Dorans on the 16th of March. In other related news, remember the Martial Arts Kid video from Monday? Well his name is Achilles from Killarney and he has a diss track of the boys after the jump…
“Beyond the Horizoooooone” I don’t think this was meant to be so intentionally funny. Zander or Zoolander? I don’t know what was more inspirational – Zander running with the children in slo-motion or Zander feeding the goats?

One of the best TV presenters in America interviewed one of the best (OK, best) Williamsburg, New York band going. Colbert excels in an interview where he asks “Your previous album was called Return to Cookie Mountain. Kyp, Why would you ever leave Cookie Mountain? It sounds delicious!”
Lord Vinford has graced us with a pretty obnoxious mix of Christmas tunes from himself combined with the likes of The Hoff, Twisted Sister, Jingle Cats, Kurtis Blow, Kenny G and Michael Bolton. Ban this filth.
it has come to my attention that 2 full length tracks off of our upcoming album, merriweather post pavilion have surfaced online. david, noah, and I please ask that someone assist us and leak all of the remaining tracks on the album.
the album is intended to be heard as a whole, and nothing bothers us more than individual tracks leaking and ruining the the overall album experience
The email is from a paw-tracks.com address which was probably hacked or faked. Nice try guys. For the final time, ain’t no leakage here.
I wouldn’t have had Ezra from Vampire Weekend down for a punk but he proves me wrong by ably joining Fucked Up during their 12-hour gig marathon in NY. Ezra joins the band for covers of ‘Someone’s Gonna Die’ by Blitz and ‘Parents’ by the Descendents.
