Fartclops- Mastery of the fine art of Flatulence

I realize that this is outside the realm of Jazz by anyone's definition but I ran across a page today on MySpace that was one of the most entertaining things I've heard in a while. A guy who calls himself Fartclops, who has amassed a huge library of sampled farts, has created a style of music that could only be called 'Fart-techno'. The music itself is actually pretty decent techno stuff, but the unique 'instumentation' makes it highly entertaining. My wife however didn't find the this stuff funny OR interesting however. Maybe this 'music' has more of an appeal to men? Let me know what you think.

Man, that shit is so fucking wrong!! I love it! Especially "The Bubbling Cauldron" which has some of the most disgusting sounding "Check and Wipes" that I've ever heard.

How are you going to find out what the women think? I've only seen one woman ever post on your site. Maybe you can have us survey our female friends, wives, relatives?? My wife will probably laugh, despite herself, and then say, "That's so disgusting...I can't believe you would listen to that."

And I guess I am that woman. When the "music" started playing, my kids came running. I could pretend to be one of the guys and say I thought it was funny except that I still have a disgusted expression on my face. However, after years of working in construction I am familiar with the male fascination with farts.

I think I am on a wavelength with David because just the other day a long email discussion with my brothers/cousins/relatives about politics devolved into "who farted?" "you farted!" etc. Except it was funnier over email. I do have to say the comments on Fartclops's page made me laugh. But now it is turned off and will never again play in my home...

BTW David I'm glad to see you've made some impressive industry contacts such as Fartclops via MySpace networking. Keep up the good work...

Yes, Fartclops and I will be going on the road in June. Our 'Ass Symphonia' tour is going to be sponsored by Rosarita refried beans and Fruit of the Loom underware, we'll be needing lots of both......

This may be a non-sequitor, but this post reminded me of Frank Zappa's reading of the "Talking Asshole" bit from Naked Lunch.

In other words: coooool.

Dave,

I think you might have a hard time re-creating this "shit" live. I suggest hiring more "musicians". Give me a call if you need a "tenor". I also know of a guy that is more well suited for the "baritone" and "bass parts". His first name has three letters, and his last name has 6 letters. He's sort of legendary, atleast in Portland.

See, I knew that Alexa would have a similar reaction to the one that I'm not even going to bother finding out from my beloved, as she has to suffer me running to help after Baby Roscoe has puked on her, and laughing my ass off, when I notice that, not only is the front of her shirt covered, but the back too!!!

Anyway, I have been conducting some rehearsals for the Mingus suite, Horus Flatulitis, followed by Goodbye Fart Pie Hat, Fables of Fartus, My Jelly Fart Soul, and naturally, Reinfartnation of a Lovebird.

I'm keeping this posting well out of the way of the kids, as when I explained that men farted louder than women because of their "ass-flaps," which they grow in adolescence, I had to suffer the consequences for the next 11 months or so.

cheers, mrB.

I was driving in a snow storm this morning and heard this music on the radio. The tears were rolling imidiately. I had to call my office and leave myself a voicemail to google it for a guy I work with. So far everyone I have had listen to this was laughing so hard!

Fartclops is awesome in theory, though I have never succeeded in listening to a song in its entirety. But he deserves props. It is possible he is relying to heavily on one instrument and needs to expand his sound.
