The Mighty Boosh Tonight at Amoeba, The Roxy
For those of you who read LA Weekly's print feature on The Mighty Boosh, you know the secret, the British comedians will be playing tonight at The Roxy. It looks to be a short performance and DJ set, similar to the Comic-Con party last Friday. Before that, The Boosh will be at Amoeba for a Q/A session and DVD signing. There might still be time to submit your questions to Amoeba, so check the website.
In the meantime, we had sent a few follow-ups to the group, follow the jump to read the responses from Julian Barratt.
How does the music work in relationship to the show? Do you write a song specifically for an episode or performance or do you write dialog around the songs?
The music comes out of the plot and dialogue. but its a two way street. If there's a character or type of music we're getting into, we'll take the writing in that direction. Often it's the juxtaposition of a creature and a suitably inappropriate style of music, a transexual sea creature and P-funk for example. It grows more organically than that though. Pretty much everything noel writes starts with the voice, which is a great way to write and very free. I get more tied up in plotting, but then I get to lock myself away and write the tunes and time disappears very agreeably.
