MACCLESFIELD, England (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) A British performer who makes music by passing gas is releasing the worlds first CD featuring tooting tunes.
Performer Paul Oldfield aka Mr. Methane says hes releasing an album this Friday (Sept. 25) called Mr. Methane.com, which highlights his unusual talent.
Some of the tunes on the CD include a dance-pop ditty called Cut the Cheese and a reggae number called Total Clear Out. The self-described fart artiste also performs lines from Romeo & Juliet, Othello and Hamlet accompanied by rips and roars from his backside.
However, Mr. Methanes explosive album is already getting heat in England from Shakespeare fans who say theyre disgusted over the farting tribute to the Bard.
Members of the Shakespeares Birthplace Trust say Mr. Methanes bottom burping interrupts the flow of the Bards prose, and adds nothing to the beauty of the words.
Mr. Methane is pooh-poohing the Shakespeare lovers and says he wont stop his gut- busting music until people accept flatulence as a legitimate art form on a par with opera.
