Foetus – Take It Outside Godboy

This brutal attack of a song takes its title from a Homer Simpson quote, and is in keeping with Jim Thirlwell’s historic referencing of so-called ‘trash culture’. The track starts off with crushing monotony, then throws the listener into samples from 1961’s ‘King Of Kings’; a biblical epic with a very white Jesus. This ends up dovetailing into heavy rolling drums and fizzing guitar grinds in true hard Foetus style. The track is from Jim’s 1995 album ‘GASH’; a Foetus comeback album (the last Foetus album was 1988’s ‘THAW’, although Jim released Wiseblood and Steroid Maximus material in between) on a major label. However, Jim’s short stint with Sony wasn’t a happy one, and although ‘GASH’ is nowhere near the failure he claimed it to be, it lacked the overall edge you would expect from a Foetus album. This tune is one of the real crackers though, and there are quite a few on the album.
