Adventures in Foam is the debut album by Brazilian electronic musician Amon Tobin, and the only to be released under the name Cujo. It was first released in September 1996 on the small south London label Ninebar records. This was around the same time that Tobin signed with Ninja Tune to proceed recording under his own name.

Ninja Tune reissue[edit]

On 20 May 2002, Ninja Tune issued an expanded re-release of the album. In a press release, the label stated:

[The] fact remains that "Adventures In Foam" was a really good record, one that deserved to be heard, so when Ninja were offered an opportunity to re-release it, they jumped at the chance. Not least, because a rather unscrupulous company in the States have been circulating a version of the record with a changed tracklist, different (and unapproved) cover art and mis-titled tracks.[3]

The Ninja Tune editions' tracklists are identical to those of the original Ninebar editions, but the CD comes with a second disc comprising the following tracks:

  1. "The Brazilianaire" – 6:20
  2. "4 or 6" – 5:40
  3. "Mars Brothers" – 5:06
  4. "Popsicle" – 4:37
  5. "The Light" – 5:15
  6. "The Sequel" – 7:52
