Stand Up! Records (www.standuprecords.com) announced today the debut release from Doug Mellard (http://dougmellard.com) entitled of Fart Safari on Friday August 28.
With over a decade of stage time and a penchant for making his own fun, whether it's with imaginary dogs or a DIY murder-mystery night, Doug Mellard proves his mettle with Fart Safari, his first outing with Stand Up! Records. Mellard returns to Austin for the live set where he asks the tough questions: "Hey mom, remember that time I thought I had masturbation-AIDS?" "What's a better horse name than 'Seabiscuit'?" "What's a more genteel mascot than the cavalier?" "Is a heroin epidemic even worth it if we don't get any great music outta the deal?" And "Are all fearful paranoids secret ninjas?" He also offers life hacking tips from eating copious amounts of glitter before a big night on the town to how to panhandle while also performing a comedy set. Finding the loopholes in life and the wormholes in comedy continuity, Doug Mellard keeps the audience guessing and laughing in equal measure—that is to say, he's a true pro.

What's more, the Fart Safari album art is a perfect parody of the French Electronic Duo Air's album Moon Safari….minus the gaseous cloud headed straight for the giraffe face of course. Perhaps some would even call this ode to flatulence – an air biscuit?
Be sure to pick up ANONYMOUS, the novel that Publishers Weekly hailed as a "well-crafted piece of experimental, voyeuristic fiction..." and "a winning jumble of the gritty, the raw, and the grotesque" at http://www.tanamor.com.
