The First of September!

SUCK ON THIS, SQUAREHEAD
I hear you got a six inch guarantee of unilateral security
Well me and Stalin, we just signed a mutual non-aggression pact
I’m gonna put CASE WHITE into effect
Prepare yourself for a CONFLICT baby
I’ll cook you a stew you’ll choke on
I tore up the VERSAILLES TREATY
Today is the FIRST of SEPTEMBER
See you at your graveside, baby
I’ll meet you in Poland, baby
I want to PUMP you FULL of BURNING LEAD
Cause six million casualties
Well I gave you a lot of slack – but all I get from you is FLAK
I’m gonna put CASE WHITE into effect
Prepare yourself for a conflict baby
Passing information on to HIGH COMMAND
We have ways of making you TALK
Today is the FIRST of SEPTEMBER
See you at your FUNERAL, baby
I’ll meet you in Poland, baby
I hear you got a six inch guarantee of unilateral security
Well me and Stalin, we just signed a mutual non-aggression pact
I’m gonna put CASE WHITE into effect
Prepare yourself for a conflict, baby
I’ll cook you a stew you’ll choke on
I tore up the VERSAILLES TREATY
TODAY IS THE FIRST OF SEPTEMBER
See you at your graveside, baby
I’LL MEET YOU IN POLAND, BABY
SEE YOU AT YOUR GRAVESIDE, BABY
I’LL MEET YOU IN POLAND, BABY

IMDB profile) went on to co-direct Alex Winter (Wiki has more info than his the cult classic Freaked, after playing the moron Bill S. Preston, Esq. in Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure. More recently he has been directing segments for Jimmy Kimmel Live!

In the 1990’s he would direct several music videos from Helmet, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Verklemmt by Foetus (1995).

You may have heard much of the music re-used, by admission, by Trent Reznor in Perfect Drug (1997). You can almost swap which lyrics to sing when listening to either song. Almost.

Foetus has been a highly influential artist on the industrial music scene. He even worked on a collaboration with Marc Almond, Lydia Lunch, and Nick Cave known as the The Immaculate Consumptive. Bootlegs are rare and the band lasted for three live tour days in 1983 before disbanding. Each of these members has a list of releases almost as long as Courtney Love’s STD prescriptions.

What J G Thirlwell (aka Clint Ruin) of Foetus is more recently known for, is the music from the animated show The Venture Bros. There’s even a “Jim Fetus” reference in one of the episodes. Venture Bros will be airing Season 5 starting on May 19, 2013.

A long time ago (ended in 2008) I did a podcast of Industrial music that was essentially connecting-the-dots to entertain myself. It usually went something like the above.
