All it takes for heartthrob status these days, apparently, is a short HBO series filmed in Chinatown and Williamsburg with a couple of guys from New Zealand trying their best to be as sexually clueless as possible. Somehow, Bret McKenzie and Jemaine Clementâbetter known as Flight of the Conchordsâpulled that one off nicely, and now with a second album out, theyâre reaching for sex-god status: âJust because weâve been playing tonsil hockey/Doesnât mean you get to score the goal thatâs in my jockey/Just because Iâm in a two-man novelty band/Doesnât mean itâs all about poontang.â Oh, those casanovas . . . We can be pretty sure that it wonât be only Mel standing in line to see them, so show up early.
