Scraping Foetus Off The Wheel – Sick Man

This is the song that was the cause for the fall out between Jim Thirlwell and Nick Cave (‘scum’ by The Bad Seeds was Cave’s riposte apparently). To be honest, it was all worth it because this is another Foetus cracker. It starts off with rainfall and Jim (parodying Nicks vocal style) describing the ‘Sick Man’ of the title. The song kicks into rough, industrial bar room blues; which ramps up with Jim literally spitting out the vocals until suddenly, a demented version of the Batman theme takes us to the finish with cries of ‘Sick Man’. Brilliant! From 1983’s ‘HOLE’ album.
