"Null/Void" is a Foetus dual-EP set compiling an aborted pair of EPs originally scheduled for release by Sony/Columbia. "Null" was briefly distributed in the U.S. as a promotional EP. Unfortunately, the official releases of "Null" and its planned companion, "Void", were halted when Sony severed Thirlwell's contract in late 1995.

The set was first released in 1996 in Japan. 1997 saw its release in the U.S. (via Cleopatra) and the UK (via Big Cat).

Like "Null", "Void" acts as a de facto single for "Friend or Foe" from "Gash".
