Some Bizzare have always been been a label that have tried to push forward public expectations in music - and most people probably overlook the impact that many of the bands on some bizzare over the years have had on mainstream pop culture (amongst them Depeche Mode, Soft Cell, The The, Cabaret Voltaire, Foetus....then of course there's Techno Popsters 'The Grid' (and the suddenly now ultra hip again 'Bizzare Inc')
However - This Compilation shows what Some Bizzare do best...And There are few duff tracks on this compilation - Highlights include "Risque" - (Fun glam pop), Dance Greats "The Grid" Make an appearence as well as excellent electro and dance tracks from "Mothboy" and Beck collaborator "DJ Swamp". "Gary Lucas Vs The Dark Poets" (Incredible Haunting Meaty Breakbeat!) and Kontour (Unlike anything I've ever heard before - disturbingly brilliant). Also tracks by 'Lucid Sketchaster', 'ToyKult' and the uber cool Japanese band 'satanicpornocultshop' are all excellent - This is a genuinely eclectic joy from start to finish....and it's an album that absolutley anybody with a taste for the alternative will adore. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
