FOETUS – JQ Murder

Foetus is a solo musical project of Australian musician JG Thirlwell. The project has had many similar names, each including the word ‘Foetus’.note The “members” of the project are aliases of Thirlwell; they include Frank Want, Phillip Toss, and Clint Ruin. Thirlwell occasionally collaborates with other artists, but does not consider them to be members of Foetus.

In 1981, after the breakup of PragVEC, Thirlwell started his own solo music project under the name of ‘Foetus Under Glass’. After the album Thaw, Thirlwell stopped changing the name; thereafter it remained simply ‘Foetus’.

In November 1983, Foetus undertook a tour with Marc Almond, Nick Cave and Lydia Lunch in the quickly dissolved ‘partnership’ known as The Immaculate Consumptive. He has also appeared on albums recorded by The The, Einsturzende Neubauten, Nurse With Wound and Anne Hogan.

In October 1985, Thirlwell made the album Nail, which became the most popular Foetus album of all time. Gash was issued in 1995, which led to acknowledgment from music journalists of Foetus’s role in the development of industrial music.

“JQ Murder” is taken from You’ve Got Foetus On Your Breath (1982)

J.Q. Murder wears sandpaper suits
Broken glass in pocket, barbed wire boots
Not because he’s mean but because he’s a martyr
He makes Jackie Collins look like Jean Paul Sartre

Who’s that man? (Beat him up, beat him up)
I said, who’s that man? (Beat him up, beat him up)
J.Q. Murder, tyranny and murder
Judgment, retribution, murder and melancholia
Woo!

Three Musketeers conscripted, each in his narrow cell
Warder! Send a J.Q. Murder, die in living hell
Safer in the streets than in your home? With strangers than with friends?
Swim for your life in a sea of red ink, drown all dead ends

Who’s that man? (Beat him up, beat him up)
I said, who’s that man? (Beat him up, beat him up)
J.Q. Murder, J.Q., J.Q. Murder
Judgment with religious fervor, murder and melancholia

The quick and the dead, kill or be killed, woo!
Two-bit penny philanthropists, a dime a dozen
Here’s the demystifying process in action

Don’t kneel, it makes me nervous [x2]
The quick and the dead, kill or be killed [x4]
Seal up the mineshaft, there can’t be anybody left alive!

There’s more integrity in a politician’s notes than in the whole of his gritty frame
Sir Cutthroat threw a party, migraine, you Jane, Kingdom Came
Murder! Where’s your religious fervor? Pretend you’re a martyr!
He makes Jesus Christ look like Frank Sinatra

The quick and the dead, kill or be killed [x2]
Seal up the mineshaft, there can’t be anybody left alive!

J.Q. Murder, J.Q., J.Q. Murder
Tyranny and murder, judgment, retribution
J.Q. Murder, where’s your religious fervor?
Here’s the demystifying process in action
Murder and melancholia
