The new Manorexia CD, titled The Radiolarian Ooze, is at long last available for secure online purchase from the Foetus website - go to http://www.foetus.org - and follow the Shop link.
Manorexia is a side-project of one JG Thirlwell, also known for his works as Foetus, Steroid Maximus, DJ Otefsu and Baby Zizanie of late.
Sometimes darkly disorienting, sometimes rhythmic and occasionally almost treading on Steroid Maximus territory..... check it out!!!!!

*A couple tidbits. DO NOT hold on to your Halloween tickets! Get them fully refunded by ticketmaster. We are planning a Ipecac extravaganza for spring 2003 but will not honor the old tickets because we don't want the Roxy to get ANY of this money. As soon as we get details of a makeup date we will let you know.
*We are wrestling with scheduling issues for lining up the bands for New Years but should have it resolved SOON! Stay tuned. We have Dec 30 & 31 on hold at the Great American Music Hall in SF.
*If you are not happy that we are censoring the message board to get rid of idiotic posts our best suggestion would be.....LEAVE! We love the support we get from our diehard fans but trust us when we say we don't need support from morons. (by the way Andy is not doing the censoring)
* RUINS!
* A quick peek at 2003? Young Gods; Kaada; Melvins; Queens of the Stone Age; Pink Anvil; Melvins; Tomahawk; Kid 606; Melvins; Yoshimi & Yuka Honda; Fantômas; Patton vs. the X-ecutioners; Curse of the Golden Vampire and more!!!!!
