Riki and Kate met at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre in Los Angeles and began working together on a short film called Imaginary Larry. As Garfunkel and Oates they create satirical folk songs covering topics like same sex marriage ("Sex With Ducks"), gently telling a guy they aren't interested ("I Would Never [Have Sex With You]"), and the joys of pregnancy ("Pregnant Women Are Smug"). You can buy All Over Your Face here or at Amoeba Hollywood.
According to Spinner, a new Marvin Gaye biopic is in the works, and will be directed by Julien Temple, whose The Filth and the Fury, about the Sex Pistols, is legendary. The Gaye biopic will focus on his exodus to Belgium, after IRS troubles pushed him out of the US, and the recording of what would be his final album, Midnight Love, there.
