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.
Some Like It Hot is an album by guitarist Barney Kessel performing adaptations music from Billy Wilder's 1959 film Some Like It Hot, recorded in 1959 and released on the Contemporary label
We sold a few comics, talked some nonsense and left the shop with stock of both the Zarjaz summer special and the latest issue of FutureQuake. Nostalgia & Comics is the closest thing FQP have to a 'home' shop so it was a treat to be able to sit and actually chat to the staff and other SP dayers there. Zarjaz goes A4 for a summer like no other! Inside the pages you will discover new stories for Judge Dredd, Devlin Waugh, the ABC warriors as well as Strontium Dog and making his Zarjaz debut- NEMESIS THE WARLOCK. 48 pages for the astounding price of £. 0 including a full colour centrespread!
Another hard-core Joe d'Amato pin-striped gangster outing shot on film (as usual) about life and lust in the roaring '20s. Pin-striped, square-shouldered bootleggers do deals and dames in positions your parents never even dreamed of. Written by Anonymous. In my memory I had thought of this one as his answer film to Billy Wilder's SOME LIKE IT HOT due to the title but I was wrong. That spoof was directed by Joe's much better colleague Luca Damiano under the title MARYLIN. The D'Amato film in question is nearly plot less and also suffers from casting mainly no-name and lookalike femmes
Reinvented by Wilder and co-writer IAL Diamond, Some Like It Hot is effortlessly fluent, joyous and buoyant: a high-concept comedy that stays as high as a kite, while other comedies flag. Nobody’s perfect is the last line. Wilder, Lemmon, Curtis and Monroe come pretty close. Reading on mobile? Watch the trailer for Some Like It Hot. Topics.
Zarjaz is a comics anthology fanzine for the long-running British science fiction comic 2000 AD. Zarjaz was started in 2001 by Andrew J. Lewis and ran for four issues. The fanzine contained comic strips based on various 2000 AD characters and also ran an in-depth interview with writer Alan Moore. There were contributions from established 2000 AD creators like Alan Grant and gave a start to others such as Adrian Bamforth and Simon Spurrier.
Comics are notoriously hard things to represent on screen. But I bought it randomly - a comic and some sweets with my pocket money. I never really bought it regularly, but the imagery kind of stuck with me. I went back to it years later as a teenager, with friends I met at school who were into interesting subcultural things like comics and punk music. It was like a little nod to the fact that the Blitzspear had its own history. I was thinking there's probably a little story there. Those sorts of little side stories happened all the time in 2000AD.
