Devo Spice Update - The FuMP's 500th Song, TMBG Cover

Devo Spice Update - The FuMP's 500th Song, TMBG Cover

Hi everyone!

It’s June.  You know what that means!  Or not.  If you don’t I’m not telling you.  So there.

--== The FuMP Celebrates 500 Songs ==--
--== Dr. Demento, Throwing Toasters, and Me, at WorldCon ==--
--== They Might Be Giants Cover Project ==--
--== Nerdapalooza’s Comedy Music ==--
--== eTalentShowcase ==--
--== Free Downloads This Month ==--

--== The FuMP Celebrates 500 Songs ==--
A few months ago I got curious about how many songs The FuMP had posted since we launched.  After counting them up I realized that we were fast approaching our 500th song.  I emailed the guys and said I wanted to do something special to celebrate the milestone.  I came up with an idea for a big group jam.  I wanted to do a parody of We Are The World called We Are The FuMP and feature as many FuMP artists on it as we could rustle up.

Luke Ski took the idea and ran with it, writing a brilliant parody featuring references to several dozen FuMP songs and coordinating all the artists involved. Bob Emmet of Project Sisyphus did the music and pieced the whole thing together.  In the end, 39 artists make an appearance on the song and it is epic.  You can listen to it and download it here:

And to put the icing on the cake all proceeds from the song are going to go to Marc Gunn to help his daughter Kenzie.  Kenzie was born with a heart defect that will require her to have several surgeries.  If you would like to donate to help Marc offset his medical costs you can do so on this page:

Now all we need is someone to do a South Park style animated music video for the song since there’s no way all 39 of us are ever going to be in the same place at the same time.

--== Dr. Demento, Throwing Toasters, and Me, at WorldCon ==--
Renovation, the 69th annual World Science Fiction Convention is happening in mid August in Reno, NV and I am thrilled to announce that I will be there along with Throwing Toasters and Dr. Demento.

The current plan as I understand it is to have a block of comedy music at some point on Thursday, August 18th.  That’s all the information I have right now.  I’ll post more as I get it.  For more information on the convention visit:

--== They Might Be Giants Cover Project ==--
On September 11, 2001 at midnight They Might Be Giants released their album Mink Car with a party at Tower Records in Manhattan.  We all know what happened later that day.  For the 10th anniversary of the World Trade Center attacks there is going to be a new cover version of Mink Car released with all proceeds going to the FDNY Foundation.

Mink Car will be covered track by track by artists such as MC Frontalot, Shael Riley, Molly Lewis, brentalfloss, Nuclear Bubble Wrap, and more.  I will be contributing to the album as well.  I will be doing “Mr. Xcitement.”

The Mink Car Cover Project is being produced by Blue of Hello, The Future! and should be available in late August.  They are accepting preorders now at

--== Nerdapalooza’s Comedy Music ==--
Nerdapalooza is fast approaching- a 2 day festival of nerdcore hip hop and general geeky music.  Awesome doesn’t begin to describe this event.  This year, representing The FuMP and funny music in general will be me, along with Luke Ski, and Insane Ian.

Many of the usuals will be there as well including Shaffer The Darklord and Captain Dan And The Scurvy Crew.

Nerdapalooza also has a Kickstarter campaign going to try to help improve the overall event.  If you can donate some money it will be greatly appreciated.

--== eTalentShowcase ==--
A new web site for creative professionals launched recently called eTalentShowcase.  I set up a simple profile with them and I’m thrilled to announce that I am currently their featured Talent Of The Week, with a link right on their home page.

Check them out at

--== Free Downloads This Month ==--
And I just wanted to mention that the free downloads of the month over at are:

Brain Food - This is a zombie-gangsta-rap song written for Mur Lafferty’s audio drama The Takeover available at  The Takeover is about a web design firm that gets bought out by a staffing company that employs zombies.

Nerds Rule - This is a collaboration with nerdcore superstar YT Cracker which came about when he had trouble recording vocals for another song.  He wrote a verse and recorded it for me and then I wrote the rest of the song around his verse.

That’s all folks!  As always you can find me on the web in various places:



PR: Kottonmouth Kings Announce Welcome to Stonetown Tour

From Kerosene Media:

PR: Kottonmouth Kings Announce Welcome to Stonetown Tour

Kottonmouth Kings have announced they will embark on the Welcome To Stonetown Tour throughout July and August. The tour is set to bring a special evening with the Kottonmouth Kings to each town as the group performs all the classic tracks fans have grown to love, as well as new tracks from their upcoming album. Each tour date will also feature special solo performances by Dirtball, Johnny Richter, Kingspade, DJ Bobby B and D-Loc. Kottonmouth Kings' new studio album, “Sunrise Sessions”, lands in stores on July 19th, 2011 on Suburban Noize Records.
Kottonmouth Kings are currently offering a free Mp3 download of the track “Summertime” to fans that pre-order tickets through The group are also offering fans special meet and greet VIP packages, along with an exclusive 6-song bonus CD, for each date of the tour.
"We look forward to elevating our live set and production on this tour with a collection of old classics and new material for fans. The tour's theme will be centered around our new animated website 'Welcome To Stonetown', so there will be a lot of cool visuals for fans on this tour," commented Daddy X."Our live show will be more interactive and involved than anything we have attempted in the past and it will be a high definition experience of sight and sound. This tour will be a game changer and set new standards for those that follow. Each date of the 'Welcome To Stonetown’ tour is going to be a non-stop party until security throws us out."
The Kottonmouth Kings have managed to tap into a powerful musical force field on "Sunrise Sessions" that pools together elements of hip-hop, reggae, and dubstep, along with breezy acoustics. Sonically the album is driven by a ying-yang of styles that meld together in perfect symmetry. On one side of the album, listeners are greeted by stoney melodies, catchy hooks and breezy acoustics that exemplify the feel good nature of their California lifestyle, while the other side serves up some blistering hip-hop bangers that could be used as the soundtrack for fans to ignite any party.

Video: The Niceguys - "Die Later"

From Audible Treats:

Video: The Niceguys - "Die Later"

The Niceguys released their debut album, The Show, in September of 2010. The album has earned the group accolades aplenty already, and despite being close to finished with their upcoming EP, The James Kelley EP, which will be released this summer, the Houston-based foursome is continuing to feed fans' appetites with new videos from The Show, this latest one being for "Die Later." Along with lead single "Mr. Perfect," "Die Later" is one of the hardest hitting tracks from the LP, replete with grinding, distorted guitars, heavy bass, and beating drums, all of which plays perfect accompaniment to Yves Saint's ever-so-smooth flow and witty vocal quips, as he raps, "The only thing promised on this tilted axis/ Is victory for my Niceguys, death, and taxes."

Watch The Niceguys' video for "Die Later" here: .
