J.G. Thirlwell

Native of Melbourne, Australia, Jim Thirlwell conceived the basic Foetus concept, when he relocated to London in 1978. The first Foetus release "OKFM / Spite Your Face" appeared in January 1981 on Thirwell's own Self Immolation label. Relocated this time to New York City in 1984, he operates since then under many monikers: mainly Foetus, but also Wiseblood (with Roli Mosimann), Steroid Maximus, Ectopic Ents International. Thirwell has also produced, mixed and/or performed on vast quantities of recordings including many of the releases on Lydia Lunch's Widowspeak label and artists as diverse as The The, Nurse With Wound, Pantera, Virgin Prunes, Nine Inch Nails, White Zombie, Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, Coil, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Arto Lindsay, Marc Almond and countless others.
