That just came from some chords that we were learning of this Latin style. Where do you come up with some of the ideas for the music? Some would say it was because the episodes lost their luster, but it was mostly because the music just wasn't as strong. I think we may have tried it once. It is available on the Sub Pop channel. How are your shows different now than they were when you were playing to one person, as you mention, in Calgary back in 2000? Jemaine Clement: We would talk to the audience less and have more banter between ourselves, but that's because our show wasn't as developed back then.

Many tracks are rerecorded or slightly remixed versions of those featured in the television program. They go along with the songs, so jellybeans, a monkey, toothbrushes. Did anyone paint you a portrait? New Zealand Symphony Orchestra 6.
