Foetus (Scraping Foetus Off The Wheel) – Hole – Cassette
Belying the fact that J.G. Thirlwell was long pigeonholed as an industrial artist, Hole veers from downtown blues to surf-raunch to paranoid industrial dance and back with few pauses. Listeners expecting to catch their breath at some point may be a bit startled, since Hole never lets up and resists easy classification. Highlights include “Clothes Hoist” and “I’ll Meet You in Poland Baby.”
Hole is an album by the experimental music project Foetus, led by musician and composer J.G. Thirlwell. The album was originally released in 1984 and has since become a significant and influential work within the industrial and experimental music genres.
Hole is characterized by its aggressive and confrontational sound, blending elements of industrial rock, post-punk, and noise. J.G. Thirlwell’s vocals range from intense screams to spoken-word passages, while the instrumentation is a mix of distorted guitars, pounding drums, and electronic elements.
The cassette format of Hole offers a nostalgic listening experience, reminiscent of the time when the album was initially released. Cassettes provide a portable and tactile way to enjoy the music, making it suitable for on-the-go listening or for those who appreciate the unique characteristics of the cassette format.
