The FuMP quite simply is The Funny Music Project. We just thought The FuMP had a nice ring to it. Like
the ringing a boxer hears after he's been hit in the head one too many times.
The FuMP is a collaborative effort made up of a large group of comedy musicians, artists such as Devo Spice, Worm Quartet,
the great Luke Ski, Power Salad, Tom Smith, Robert Lund and Spaff, Raymond and Scum, Carrie Dahlby, Carla Ulbrich, Seamonkey,
Steve Goodie, Insane Ian, Nuclear Bubble Wrap, and more!
These artists have committed to releasing new or unlreleased recordings of their music to the public under a
Creative Commons license. This means
we promise not to be upset when a video of you lip synching to our song in your underwear appears on YouTube.
That also means
all of our songs are 100% podsafe. We have set up an account with The Podsafe
Music Network. Additionally you may register with us as a podcaster to get download
access to all the archived songs. Also note that our artists have recorded many songs that have not been released on The FuMP but are still
podsafe. Visit our Artists page and click on the More Info link next to the artist's name to contact an artist
or visit their web site.
New songs are posted every Tuesday and Friday. These songs are available as a free download (128k MP3) from
the home page. We also provide an RSS feed so you can subscribe to the podcast of these songs and get the downloads
automatically in iTunes or some other podcatching program.
In addition to the free MP3 there is also a higher quality MP3 (320k) available for purchase for $.99. Songs can
be purchased individually or as a monthly subscription. The monthly subscription (Level 1) is $4.99 and gives you access to all
the high quality downloads as soon as they become available.
Every two months a FuMP compilation CD is produced featuring the songs of the previous two months. Wherever possibe
the CD will include bonus material such as extra songs, interviews with the artists, live performance videos, games, and more.
This CDs retail for $9.99, plus shipping, and are available in our store. We also offer a monthly subscription (Level 2) which includes
all the high quality MP3s (320k) and the CDs which are automatically shipped to you every other month.
All subscriptions also disable the ads on the site.
And since we're not too proud to beg we've also set up a donation box.
So that's the scoop. Come on in. Have a look around. And be prepared for an onslaught of funny music!
