Flight Of The Conchords - I Told You I Was Freaky (Cassette)


There is so much that could be said regarding Flight of the Conchords. How they hail from New Zealand, the island nation with multiple postal services. Or that, after winning a Best Comedy Album Grammy for The Distant Future in 2007, they were nominated for a second Best Comedy Album Grammy in 2008, but were actually relieved not to win again--because meaningless trophies really do seem important when you only have one, and have to fight over who gets to keep it. And that during the second season of their popular HBO television series, fans could download new songs immediately after they debuted on-air. Or that this same popular HBO television series (conveniently also called Flight of the Conchords) was nominated for what-sure-seems-like-a-record-breaking 6 Emmys.

I Told You I Was Freaky is, among a great many other things, a genre-tripping tour de force and includes three songs from the second series of the show which are otherwise as yet unreleased (''Rambling Through the Avenues of Time,'' ''Too Many Dicks (On the Dance Floor)'' and ''You Don't Have to Be a Prostitute'').

I Told You I Was Freaky has sold 112K copies, as of December, 2018. It has never before been available on cassette.
