Fred Armisen and Bill Hader appeared as their Talking Heads parody band Test Pattern on last night’s episode of Late Night With Seth Meyers. Meyers introduced the group as an “iconic art-rock band from Connecticut via the Lower East Side” and they performed a song called “Art + Student = Poor.” Test Pattern is going to be the subject of an upcoming episode of their IFC show Documentary Now! (which premieres tonight) that parodies the Talking Heads’ famous Jonathan Demme-directed concert film Stop Making Sense. That episode won’t air for a few weeks, but you can get a taste of what they’re going for below.
Yes, that’s Arcade Fire’s Jeremy Gara on drums!
