Foetus Corruptus

“I know where you live. I know where you’re hiding. Squeal like a piggy, English faggot!” These are the hysterical and demented vocals of pure ugly musical genius, Jim Thirwell. Not even two months ago I was wallowing in a pit of self-inflicted despair that my Foetus collection had dwindled to only two albums and a mix tape. I was traveling from store to store trying to find my one true love of musical ugliness. It was hopeless. Then Invisible decided to release this European beauty from the Thaw era to me and fill my soul up again. I now have not only have a reason to live and a reason to work, but I have a reason to get up in the morning. You ain’t nothin’ `till you’ve got a little Foetus on your breath baby! Ah, without Thirwell, life is “just another pair of soiled panties nailed to the wall.” Invisible Records, P.O. Box 16008, Chicago, IL 60616;
