Foetus are pioneers of the Industrial sound, as well as an influence on much of todays electronic music artists.


This is the main music outlet for J. G. Thirlwell.

Up to 1995 they went through a number of name changes, all of which included the word "foetus". Some of these titles include;-

  • Foetus Under Glass
  • You've Got Foetus on Your Breath
  • Scraping Foetus Off The Wheel

Since '95 the name has settled on Foetus, but there is the related project;-

  • "The Foetus Symphony Orchestra"

This was founded in '97 and continues.

J. G. Thirlwell acts as the sole instrumentalist, vocalist, songwriter and producer for all Foetus works and as such is the only member of the band.
From time to time other artists have collaborated on Foetus works but are not considered members of Foetus. Thirlwell is 100% responsible for the musical output of Foetus.
