Hedluv and Passman are a serious rap duo from Cornwall, UK, who are still at a loss as of why they were invited to a comedy festival.
The ‘originators of Casio rap’, met at school, have been making music together since 2001 and released two albums.
Rhys Darby saw them at the Edinburgh Comedy Fest last year and apparently loved them so much that he went to see the show four times, decided to produce their show and bring him down under.
“I haven’t seen this much talent since The Conchords and even then I never saw that much talent,” his Flight of the Conchords alter ego, Murray Hewitt, is quoted.
So will Darby in real life be able to achieve what he could not as the fictitious Conchords manager Hewitt
Judge for yourself.
Listen here to their song Weird Nature.
