Severed Heads – Propeller (12" Version) lyrics

Here's my odds on Southern Belle (Everybody meet my maker!)
She's a ghost from coast to coast (Emmm!)
Daughter figure in the Sunday roast (Emmm!)
Swish of skirt in the immaterial (Emmm!)
C Long time no see, burn your bridges
Took a plane to Mozambique (Emmm!) / Lost the luggage in territorial (Emmm!)
Squeeze my girl in wildlife romp (Emmm!)
She's a ghost from coast to coast (Emmm!)--C
"About a guy who falls in love with a race horse and rebuilds her in human
Form. Last seen in flight to parts unknown. "

    The Big Bigot was Severed Heads 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 they made with Skinny Puppy in 1986. Quite a few people still define them by this period; although for Tom Ellard 25 years later it's all faded carpet.
    Bigot was made on a Fostex 16 track recorder in Toms bedroom, and while the quality was ok for the time but never quite strong enough for his tastes. Once around the early 2000's Tom 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 he's 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 his and my head.
