Manorexia – The Radiolarian Ooze

Second Manorexia outing from JG Thirlwell, aka Foetus, available exclusively from www.foetus.org

Trending Now

Manorexia releases eschew the meticulous approach of Thirlwell’s Foetus and Steroid Maximus aliases, allowing a freer-flowing approach to composition. Water imagery is very much in evidence here?the previous Manorexia album, Volvox Turbo, was named after pond-dwelling organisms, while The Radiolarian Ooze refers to slime secreted by plankton on the ocean’s floors (a similar sub-aquatic leitmotif dominated Thirlwell’s recent live laptop performances as Baby Zizane). Cinematic in scope, the album explores a sinister psychological inner space before blossoming into a suite of uplifting compositions that express awe at the vastness of nature.
