Source: The Quietus.

Even among countless talented peers in the post-punk era, JG Thirlwell cut a lone figure. Combining disparate and seemingly incohesive styles and disciplines, his music as Foetus pulls in several directions to create a complex combination of sonic experiments, chance, and glorious harmonious absurdity. His ability to atomise and then perversely reassemble the familiar may have been impenetrable for some.
