His constant companion is always at hand...

There are two pages on this site dedicated to Hole.

This page is an in-depth, and, some might argue, excessive guide to the various vinyl releases of Hole and associated records.

Part two is my introduction and thoughts on the album as well as an extensive interview about the record with JGT.

Go here for the second instalment – HOLE PART TWO

MAKING ENTRIES IN HIS DIARY...

As with my Diary of a Madman page, this is also partly for self reference, self indulgence and to keep track of my Hole collection. It is also to share with people who collect the album, and it is to give people who enjoy my own music an insight into my record collecting habits.

Taking notes from toilet walls...

NOTES ON THE COVER AND LABEL IMAGES:

All the images shown are my own personal copies, some are battered and a few are (Clint) ruined by JGT’s fair hand. My signed copies were thanks to David Tibet who asked JGT to scrawl on them for me at the time of his co-headline performance with Coil at the Royal Festival Hall in 2000.

(An interview from 1985 with JGT by David Tibet can be found towards the end of this page).

Some of the images have been enhanced to make the various (often subtle) variations between editions clearer. Details of significant differences have been made even clearer by showing details of the art rather than the full image.

There are not too many versions of Hole (in comparison to versions of Diary of a Madman), so to make the page a little more comprehensive and interesting I have also included an array of Hole related tracks that appeared on compilations and the E.P.s Wash/Slog, Finely Honed Machine and Calamity Crush. Including Hole, these four releases may be considered as the ‘Hole Era’.

This page covers all releases that came after Ache and before Nail, fundamentally all the discs that fitted into the Foetus of Excellence box. The only exception being The Only Good Christian Is A Dead Christian which I have included, as I believe this was recorded around the ‘Hole Era’.

Lurchin' round the parking lot...

Another point of interest is the You’ve Got Foetus On Your Breath session for the John Peel show on BBC Radio 1. This session was recorded in December 1982 and broadcast on 4th January 1983. Out of the four tracks aired, there are 3 tracks, (arguably, as Slog and Wash appeared on earlier releases) from the ‘Hole Era’.

John Peel – BBC Session  – Jan 1983 – Tracklist:

1. Today I Started Slogging Again
2. Clothes Hoist
3. Wash It All Off
4. Ignorance Is Bliss (Or Is It?)

These tracks have not been officially released but in this digital age are available quite easily if you look in the right place.

Hangs his trophies on walls of his place...

As with the Diary page I have excluded all CD versions of Hole but I have included the US cassette version because of its different artwork. This is the only version of Hole released on tape, there was never a UK/Europe cassette issued.

I have also included a bootleg cassette. The tape includes JGT interviewed on Frontlijn, a VPRO radio show. Its inclusion seems relevant as it was aired in the middle of the ‘Hole Era’.

As far as I am aware, I have amassed all the vinyl variables that have been issued. The collection consists of –

Hole – LP: 7 versions.
Calamity Crush – 12″: 4 versions.
Wash / Slog – 12″: 5 versions.
Finely Honed Machine – 12″: 2 versions.

I have garnered a lot of information from Discogs and the indispensable resource which is the textural discography at Foetus.org.

I have corrected what I consider to be some mistakes, filled in some blanks and have supplied images which hopefully clarify the differences in artwork.

My primary aim is to make this page overly detailed and unnecessarily meticulous and also, most importantly, as CORRECT as possible. If you see any errors please let me know.

If you feel I have made any mistakes or know of any versions that I have not included please let me know.

Many thanks to JGT for taking time to answer my questions in such detail and Peter Anderson who gave me permission to use, and sent me, so many photos for this page.

Cat Number: PVC 9903
Released: 1985
Made by: Hub-Servall Record Mfg. Corp.

The insert is identical to the UK issue shown above.

The insert was not included in the Canadian copies of the LP.

The bonus 12″ was only available with initial pressings of this US edition of the LP.

Of the 5 tracks on the bonus 12″, 2 of them (Finely Honed Machine and Sick Minutes) comprise the Finely Honed Machine 12″. Sick Minutes has been edited.

2 more of the 5 tracks on the bonus 12″ (Wash It All Off and Today I Started Slogging Again) compromise the Wash / Slog 12″. Wash It All Off appears in its original form. Today I Started Slogging appears in an edited form.

FRONT COVER

BACK COVER

TEST PRESSING LP + 12" | USA

The two discs come in individual generic white disco bag sleeves. A two page photocopy, including track titles, artist, copyright etc, is stapled to the front sleeve. All the labels on the discs are exactly the same.

This PVC test pressing info sheet adds two extra songs to the track listing which are Sick Man Edit [1:07] (end of LP side 1) and Cold Day In Hell Edit [1:14] (end of LP side 2).

Some sources claim these to be ‘edited versions of the originals’. They are not. For some reason the test pressing (and the US version) have bands cut into the disc at this point in the respective songs. Both songs have a musical reprise at the end of them, these have been cut into their own ‘track’.

In short, the versions of Sick Man and Cold Day in Hell are exactly the same as all other pressings. There is no extra material or extra tracks.

All details, matrix numbers, cat numbers etc. are the same as the US standard issue, see above.

Label: PVC Records / ZE Records / Self Immolation
Cat Number: PVCC 9903

As with the test pressing, the cassette cover lists Sick Man Edit and Cold Day In Hell Edit. These do no exist as ‘real’ tracks, there is no extra material or extra tracks. See full explanation above.

Finely Honed Machine was engineered by Warne Livesey and published by Cherry Red Music.
Sick Minutes (Unmutual) was engineered by Harlan Cockburn and Charles Gray. Published by Intersong.

There appears to be only a UK / EU issue of this disc.

WHITE LABEL / PROMO / PROOF | UK / EU

This copy comes in an unglued foldout cover. The sleeve is about 10mm larger than a regular LP sleeve. My theory would be that this is a printing proof. The sleeve has a matt finish unlike the regular edition which is gloss laminate.

THE FOETUS OF EXCELLENCE | BOX + T-SHIRT | UK | 1985

T-shirt and Box
Label: Self Immolation / Some Bizzare
Cat Number: FOE 1
Made in the UK
Release date: 16th September 1985
Online sources suggest the box was released in November 1985. I disputed this and believed it was released around September/October 1985. Confirmation of the exact date came from Andrew Bean – many thanks Andrew.

The box is designed to hold all 4 Foetus vinyl releases that had been issued up to that point by Some Bizzarre.

Also included in the box was a shrink-wrapped black t-shirt with the shield design printed on it.

The image printed onto the centre of the front of the box is 130mm x 210mm. The rest of the box has a black background with a barely-visible dark red design. If you look closely, you can see what appears to be one or more faces, to the left of the centre image.

I found an adapted picture of the box showing the hard to see images printed in red at Barry Grayshon’s Pinterest page. I have used the image below to illustrate the ‘hidden’ images.

Limited to 836 copies, exactly enough to break even, and the one and only release to make the UK pop charts without having a musical recording included.

SCRAPING FOETUS OFF THE WHEEL | FOETUS ON THE STAGE 84 | CASSETTE | UK | 1985

UK: Bootleg
Released: 1985

I bought this tape in the basement of a clothing store on Carnaby Street, London, sometime in 1985. By the looks of the cover and the zero effort with the tape, design wasn’t the strongest attribute of this bootlegger.

The tape includes JGT interviewed on Frontlijn, a VPRO radio show.

All the tracks are live recordings. After a search on the Foetus website, the two live shows on the tape are Scraping Foetus off the Wheel performances from two out of the possible three dates –

One World Poetry Festival, Meervaart, Amsterdam, Netherlands.
One World Poetry Festival, Waginingen, Amsterdam, Netherlands.
or
NL Centrum, Amsterdam, Netherlands.

Track Listing is wrong on the tape, probably due to the fact that Dirtdish had yet to be released.

SIDE ONE
Hot Horse
Street of Shame
Stumbo
0-0 Where Evil Dwells
A Cold Day in Hell
Motorslug

SIDE TWO
Frontlijn Interview: Broadcast 8th November 1984 on VPRO, Netherlands.
Tracks played in the interview are Dying With My Boots (You’ve Got Foetus on your Breath) and A Short Dip in the Glory Hole by Nurse With Wound

The interview is followed by a Foetus live performance. The tracks are –

The Fudge Punch
Stumbo
Street of Shame
0-0 Where Evil Dwells

Added after the live show are –
