A Number Of Names - Sharevari (Detroit Scene 1982)
A Number of Names-Sharevari debut on detroit's local dance show "the Scene" 1982 - thanks to viacirca.
"Historically, this is considered to be the first ever Detroit techno record, released in 1981 a few weeks before cybotron's 'alleys of the mind'. Musically, it is a strange but cool mash-up between kraftwerk, italo and robotic new-wave, with a quite minimal and raw production. The guys show a great sense of humour in the voices and lyrics. Slick, excellent record but uber-hard-to-find. Complete story about this song in Dan Sicko's landmark book 'Techno Rebels', the best (only?) book about the history of Detroit techno." - Review of Sharevari by Restless.
