The Fartniss Disco

by Lederhosen Lucil, Krista Muir & VV



Mayday! Mayday! Hey, it's May Day! Time to get a little silly (but serious too) about TOOTING and release (heh heh) The Fartniss Disco!

Lederhosen Lucil was game to sing on this one. She is supposed to release her narrative dance song about going on a Romanesco Hunt this spring but has been in the Pantry keeping safe from C. We got her out briefly to record some vox on this! The story? Krista's magic niece VV is an amazing giggler and when she giggles, well, she toots and then that makes her giggle and you can see...a cycle of hilariousness!

How did this song come to "pass"? (heh heh...this "about this track" officially brought to you by the omniscient 46-day quarantine brain of hypo records)

Back in December 2019 Krista started calling VV "Little Farnick" and when she sang "The Farnick disco" spontaneously VV joined in but changed it to Fartniss which made Krista laugh even harder...This song is built from the little sample of them singing it for the first time into her phone. You can't replicate that kind of spontaneity or cuteness so noise and clunkiness aside, BOOM voila! We give you...the FARTNISS DISCO!

Side note: Krista has been recovering from a heart condition since quarantine began (booo! but yay for on the mend) so we thought a nice bean casserole and releasing this song today might help cheer her up. Even though she really would have preferred a full studio version with strings and maybe a producer like Jeff Lynne at the helm (and decent mics and and and...). But we digress...time to dance! And toot!

Other fun side note: The instrumental version of this song is featured in Marites Carino's "Interviews from a Balcony" series. Check her work/it out! www.instagram.com/mcarino/?hl=en



Sometimes when I giggle I have to toot
Let it fly free if you're having a hoot
Cause holding it in can make your tummy hurt
or even make you dizzy...

Let's do the fartniss disco...

When elephants toot they're big not small
their toots could blow you across the hall
When chipmunks toot their toots are so small
you might not hear them at all...

Let's do the fartniss disco

Now tooting might be silly but it's serious too
My uncle once had a colonoscopy to do
At the hospital after it was done
they wouldn't let him go into the sun till he did the

Fartniss disco...

Now gamma is the master of the gas pass
her trumpet tuchus is a classy brass
When grocery shopping she might cough to cover it up
but come on gamma...

Let's do the fairness disco!
