JG (Foetus etc) Thirlwell

Postby Bubby » Sun Oct 22, 2006 09:33

Seen his name mentioned here a few times so some of you must dig right? He's Foetus and Steroid Maximus (anyone know where i can find the early stuff?) and Wiseblood and Stinkfist and Manorexia and Baby Zizanie and...

Hole is one of my top ten rekkids i rekkin and i like most of his other stuff, even though i initially found some of it unlistenable flannel it tends to get into you eventually, don't think much good can be said about Boil, York or [controversial]Gash[/contoversial] however.

Just don't call him industrial.

Apparantly a certain mr Smith likes him too.Burn Your House Brown sounds pretty Thirlwellian to me.

Ok, so...

What do you reckon to 'Love'?
Do most people consider the 80's stuff his pinnacle?
Is he any good live?
Is that Manorexia malarky worth getting hold of?
What the fvck's happened to his hair recently?

I've neer really heard any of his/their stuff, but I do know that Tim likes Foetus. I heard him entuhsing about them once in the (now long gone) Britannia in Hammersmith prior to a gig at the (also alas long gone) Clarendon. That would have been Summer of '88.

Has anyone checked out the preview samples of the new Foetus album, HIDE?

It filled me with the sudden, inexplicable* urge to listen to lots of Cardiacs, Levitation and Pink Floyd.

http://foetus.org/content/discography/r ... oetus-hide <-- click on the "listen" bit!


*explicable really, because it sounds to me like Cardiacs, Levitation and Pink Floyd.

Those soundbites are most temptatious and who would ever want to argue with a “neo-symphonic avant-psychedelic concept album informed by the culture of fear?” Right up my alley.
That cover would be so great on vinyl or as a great big poster on my wall.

As from this morning, Hide is available to digitally download (for the princely sum of $9.99) from foetus.org. I know this because I am a friend of Mr Thirlwell on friendface. Because I am a very sad foetus fan.
Not as much as I am a sad cardiacs fan. But almost.

I am an utterly bloody delighted Foetus fan at the moment - that album is a total eargasm! :)

I love Foetus.

I also love Cardiacs. It's like saying that I love bunnies and kittens. There's nothing not to love about either, unless they try to eat each other or something.

Mr Thirlwell & Kittens?!

*swoons*

Going to download Hide now- can't wait! Gotta be better than Love, which was a bit of a disappointment tbh.
Mind, the Venture Bros album was aces, so that made up for Love's mediocrity.
