This document is Copyright This discography is divided into five sections: A discography of releases from JG Thirlwell under his many variations on the Foetus name as well as other projects. These releases are listed in approximate chronological order. A section listing prior works and upcoming releases with insufficient information about these releases. A section listing verified unreleased projects; and as yet un-named projects including future projects discussed at one time or another by Thirlwell, as well as much-rumored projects.
A section listing "bootleg" 99 Stab Wounds - Decapitation Ritual - GG Allin - Murder Junkies and video live material in digital form. While similar in name and origin, Fetus Productions is not the same artist as the various Foetus monikers.

One was hand painted by Steven Stapleton and is generally thought to be an edition of 20 to 40 copies; another is commonly referred to as the "monster" or "sky pilot" cover and is generally thought to be an edition of copies; and the third is commonly referred to as the "burned" or "immolated man nequin " cover and is generally thought to be an edition of copies.
The hand-painted version exists only due to the fact that there were more records than LP sleeves available at that time, and Stapleton perhaps unknowingly created a collectable by painting plain sleeves for the remaining records. Also coming to light is a promotional version, issued between the "monster" and "immolated mannequin" cover versions, which had a plain white sleeve and had 2 pages stapled to the inner sleeve: 1 page of artist info and 1 page of reviews.
