Fred Armisen And Bill Hader Release Talking Heads Parody Album [Listen]

first_imgWhen we first heard about Fred Armisen and Bill Hader’s new series Documentary Now!, we couldn’t help but be intrigued by the concept. The two acclaimed SNL alums came together for a mockumentary series, and even created a Talking Heads parody band called Test Pattern for the show.After releasing a single called “Art + Student,” it seems the duo has taken the project one step further, releasing a full length album called Final Transmission. Most of the music has been featured in the series, but the fact that Armisen and Hader have put together a full length album for their parody truly shows their dedication to making a joke last.Fortunately, thanks to Consequence of Sound, we can stream the album in full. Listen to Test Pattern’s new release, Final Transmission, below.last_img read more

Press Association IFA chief executive Patrick Nelson told the Press Association: “This is not a generic decision but the Challenge Cup committee has made a decision on the national anthem, on this particular occasion, to foster a neutral atmosphere at the game.” The move has been greeted with anger by some Glentoran fans who have criticised the decision on social media sites, claiming it has been taken merely to appease Republicans. center_img Football chiefs in Northern Ireland have taken the decision not to play ‘God Save The Queen’ at next month’s politically-sensitive Irish Cup final.last_img read more
