About Nail

  • Year Released: 1985

Nail is a Scraping Foetus Off The Wheel album released by Self Immolation/Some Bizzare in 1985. It was initially released in the US by Homestead Records in 1985 and later by Thirsty Ear in 1995. In 2007, the album was re-released by Some Bizzare records in a digipack format with remastered audio and re-worked artwork. Nail is Self Immolation #WOMB FIP 4. Nail was Thirlwell's fourth album and second under the pseudonym of Scraping Foetus Off The Wheel. The album's content incorporates a variety of musical genres and the lyrics are often esoteric. For example, the tempo and instrumentation in "Descent Into The Inferno" is infrequent: the song's first half is sparse and percussive; in the latter stages the song gathers momentum and features synthesisers. "The Overture From Pigdom Come", an ironic composition resembling a classical piece of music is juxtaposed with perhaps the most brutal track on the album, "Private War", a track that features one minute of various grinding noises. There are various obscure references within the songs, some more lucid than others. "The Throne Of Agony" has the lyrics, "Alas, poor Yorick, I knew me well", a paraphrase of a line from Shakespeare's
