"Some Bizzare Album" was the first album by Some Bizzare Records. It was released in 1981 as a sampler of the label's musical ethos. The acts were not actually signed exclusively to the label at the time.
The album consisted of tracks by unsigned synthpop groups, including future alternative icons "Depeche Mode", "Soft Cell", "The The" and "Blancmange". The compilation saw the first ever released recording of "Depeche Mode". Some Bizzare Album was Stevo Pearce’s vision. He believed in the music that was included on the album as opposed to the fashion or style aspects. Some Bizzare Album was re-released on CD format in 1992 for a limited time. It was re-released again in 2008 with extra bonus tracks.
