by Various Artists
Released: Jan 1997
Label: Thirsty Ear Recordings Inc.
Some Bizarre was a showcase label for pretentiously abrasive synth punk artistes. Test Dept., Foetus, Psychic TV and Yello are here, alongside true visionaries Cabaret Voltaire. Also included are rare tracks from artists with some interest in melody: Virginia Astley's absinthe-flecked chamber pop, Marc Almond's nightclub freakshow, and The The's suburban angst.
