Funksters Release Second

The Flight of the Conchords have released their second album in the UK, I Told You I Was Freaky. The Guardian’s Will Dean says “we told you they were funky” and offers readers some of the album’s lyrical high points, which include in the track ‘You Don’t Have to be a Prostitute’, a “‘Roxanne’-like warning about the dangers of being a gigolo”: “He’s selling cheap thrills/To pay expensive bills/ But check your résumé/ You must have some other skills/ Do you have any other skills/ Like typing?”. The Distant Future won a Grammy for Best Comedy Album in 2007.
