DEAF is the first album by JG Thirlwell as Foetus. Originally released in 1981, it's a wild eccentric collision of ideas and mania from music concrete, funk, no wave to noise. DEAF was released on Thirlwell's Self Immolation label and has since been an in-demand collectors item. This 2019 re-issue is the first vinyl reissue of the album. It has been remastered by Josh Bonati and is pressed on red vinyl, with a reproduction of the album's promotional poster inside.
