Read the small interview with Jemaine Clement here: Austin360 article/interview

Also, at the end of that interview, Jemaine discusses the chance of a season 3:

"What's going on with the HBO show 'Flight of the Conchords'? Will you do a third season?

We've said no, but I don't know if anyone was listening. I think people might just ignore us and force us into it. They'll inject us with something that makes us do it. If you see us in a season three you'll know that we're probably under hypnosis."

Anyways, looks like there's no chance for a season 3, but I kind of expected that. Lets just hope it might happen, if not maybe a movie. Twitter user conchordsnet wants to know if you want a season 3 of FotC? Go here to vote.

FotC on the red carpet and 3 FotC songs on Rock Band?

Well it wasn't a great night for Bret and Jemaine, as they didn't win one award, but hey they were nominated, so that isn't bad at all. Anyways I tried to catch a glimpse of the guys on the red carpet (on E!) but didn't catch them. I guess they were interviewed on the TV Guide channel. And here's that video yo. The guys talk about being nominated and that they'll have 3 tracks on Rock Band. Cool!

News, well a small bit of news.

There's not much to report on. I hate saying report as if I'm an important reporter or something. I just like informing whoever reads this blog.

Anyways, there's a lengthy article from SonicScoop.

Not much else to report on, well there's nothing else. All I can say, is that I can't wait for the second CD, it's going to be fantastic! October 20th yo!

Some news yo

Sorry fellow peeps; I haven't been up to date on FotC news, but I have some for you now. It's pretty much pertains to the UK.

NME reports that Flight of the Conchords will be doing live gigs in the UK starting sometime next year, so that's some good news. I still wish they'd do a live show closer to my area. That's what you get for living in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan I guess!

The release date for the UK release of "I Told You I Was Freaky" is October 26th, that's what NME says at least.

You can read the NME article here: NME

Anyways, not much going on elsewhere. I don't want to bore you with my life or anything, but I'm eagerly awaiting the release of FotC next album; I can't wait to play the hell out of it. Season 2 should hold me over until the release.
