'Come Visit The Big Bigot' was Severed Heads' first record to be released commercially simultaneously in Australia, North America and Europe in 1986. It was a prime period for this 'industrial dance music' and Bigot was a respected album that did well from the tour they did with Skinny Puppy that same year. Quite a few people still define the band by this period. 'Come Visit The Big Bigot' was made on a Fostex 16 track recorder in Tom's bedroom, employing the newly acquired AKAI S612 sampler and Roland SH-101 to create most of the drum sounds. The album signaled a new direction, flirting with the dance floor and the pop song. Presenting the Heads at their most cohesive, while retaining their distinctive musical stamp. Tom's vocals are harmonized, slowed down, sped up, run through fuzz boxes, backwards, drum machine rolls, sampled guitars, horn sections, and voices but with a subversive rather than malevolent intention. Tape loops are more subtle and define their own space and texture. Like the original Australian version of the album, we've included a bonus disc featuring three extended remixes by Sydney DJ Robert Racic (who produced the edited 7' version of 'Petrol' we reissued in 2015), plus three B-sides from the 'Twenty Deadly Diseases' 12" and two additional tracks from the same recording sessions.
