Some Bizzare party @ The Canal Bar
I nearly didn't go down to the Canal bar for the Some Bizzare bash. But then i did, and I'm so glad.....
My friend Michelle waved as I walked In and ordered drinks.
Stevo ( founder of Some Bizzare label) was milling about. Michelle tried to introduce me but Stevo was on a mission to somewhere.
(had a drink see)
And yes seing him was enough for me, as memories of my youth flooded back. I had afteral read in awe, stories about this man in the popular early 80's music press.
"Stevo smashes up record company office..."
What is important now, is that he took on the music industry then! When he was only 18!
He did have my attention back then for another reason though..
Soft Cell, The The, Depeche Mode.
He signed them all and put out the "Some Bizzare album" released in the very early 80's of which I have an early copy...
Later in the eve Michelle and I stopped drinking and both sang along with the crowd to Marc Almond as Stevo took over the decks.
I met some lovely people, still like minded because of what Some Bizzare meant back when. And will mean again?
I spoke briefly to Stevo, not about a relaunch or what he's been doing for the last 30 years... I just spoke to him then waved goodbye....
It was a pleasure..
