There aren't many bands that have now not been given the Detour treatment, from the '79 Mod Revival Era, so it was there mission to track down and cement "The Variations" in the mod history!.
The Variations were one of those many small bands that sprang up in London in the early 80s and were big on the mod circuit and prided themselves as being an electrifying live act! in their short lived existence,
They did however venture into the studio on two occasions and a 7" single deal was on the table but sadly it never happened! but now nearly 40 years later, Detour have finally made this happen!
After the band split, the singer 'Mick Winslow' alongside 'Gary Wood' & 'Russell Wood' from "007" and 'Andy Orr' from "Small World" would form The Scene'.

All tracks published by Tandiz Music Ltd except for track B3 East Publications Inc./Carlin Music Corp./Cotillion Music, Inc. and track B7 Stylist Music Ltd./Universal Music Publishing MGB Ltd.
Side 2 was recorded live at the 'Mildmay Tavern', Islington in 1981

lastly the band would like to thank Terry Hollingsworth for all the hard work!
