Born 26th December 1962 in the UK, Stephen Pearce, more commonly known as Stevo, began as a DJ in the early eighties playing at venues such as the Chelsea Drugstore and the Clarendon Hotel in Hammersmith. Many early live acts performed at Stevo’s “Electronic Parties” including Fad Gadget
and Deutsch Amerikanische Freundschaft
aka DAF. After attracting interest from these events Stevo was asked to compile an electronic music chart for Sounds magazine. After receiving lots of demos from unknown bands he decided to release a compilation album; this album was the Some Bizzare Album which lead to the creation of the Some Bizzare
record label and management company.
Through the eighties Stevo signed some of the most important alternative bands including Soft Cell
, Einstürzende Neubauten
, The The
and Test Dept.
