I FUCKING KNOW, right? That would be awesome. I can particularly see Flans being fab in sketches (and John being all awkward and adorable probably, haha).
But god, really I would just love to see them on TV at all these days. It’s sad, I have TONS of TV appearances from earlier in their career but it seems that lately when they have a new album out they’re on one late night show and that’s it. I’m sure part of it is MTV as an actual music channel not existing anymore, but they used to be on tons of other stuff too.
It’s weird cos they’re much more well-known now, so you’d think they’d be on TV more. But maybe that’s the problem—maybe shows found them more interesting when they were more indie, or something. Or maybe they think no one wants to see OLD MEN on TV, but I dooooooooo.
STARRING JOHN FLANSBURGH WHAT AI WAIT WHA T
Well “starring” is overstating it—he was only in two episodes. Although actually, I don’t know how many episodes there are total, so maybe two episodes is enough to qualify as “starring.” But as you’ll note the actual #1 star is John Lee, aka “John Lee Supertaster.” He was in a cool band called Muckafurgason that opened for TMBG when I was first going to shows. Checking on the wiki I’m being reminded that Flans produced their album too, so yeh, they’re buds.
