I'd be more than happy to discuss any
little thing about Bret!
The Black Seeds ARE great! I caught them live in New York last fall.
It's true that Bret has left the band, but he and Jemaine are by no means full time Conchordians. I think I heard the boys say once that Flight of the Conchords is a hobby that got out of hand.
They had a couple of intense years working on the HBO series. They decided against a third season, they really thought they had done all they could with it and were pleased with it. I think it left them little time to persue other things and that kind of work didn't really fit their lifestyle.
I think they are friends and have been for a long time. They are not however, attached at the hip like on the television show.
They each have a seemingly bottomless wellspring of individual interests and talents. But when they come together, nobody can deny the brilliance of their collaborations. I think they will continue to work together on projects/tours, and I can hardly wait!
Have you explored Bret's work as Video Kid yet? Or Figwit?
