The Big Bigot was our first record to be released commercially simultaneously in Australia, North America and Europe. It was a prime period for this 'industrial dance music' and Bigot was a respected album that did well from the tour we made with Skinny Puppy in 1986. Quite a few people still define us by this period; although for me 25 years later it's all faded carpet.
Bigot was made on a Fostex 16 track recorder in my bedroom, and while the quality was OK for the time but never quite strong enough for my tastes. Once around the early 2000's I tried to remaster it, on the theory that the best sounding track was 'Phantasised Persecutory Breast' (mixed when very intoxicated) and so therefore it should all sound like that. That was more democratic than poetical, and in making this 25 year remaster I've instead worked very slowly and methodically with much better equipment over two years, letting each track have its own breath. It's more subtle but definitely brings the sound up to the way it sounded in my head.
