Shari Vari Remixes Double Ep.
Released: Jan 2002
Label: Puzzlebox Records
It all begins here. "Sharevari," from 1981, is acknowledged as the very first Detroit techno record (although Cybotron's "Cosmic Cars" appeared within a matter of weeks). It was a sound so new that even the band didn't have a name until the Electrifying Mojo dropped their demo on air and dubbed them A Number of Names on the spot. With a title inspired by a fashion-forward store in New York and a sound equal parts Motor City funk and sleek Eurodisco, A Number of Names nailed Detroit techno's futuristic, cosmopolitan sound with their first record. They recorded one more; they didn't need to.
