1 - DURUTTI COLUMN, THE - LC - (LP) 
4 MEN WITH BEARDS


The second Durutti Column album, originally released on Factory Records in 1981, marked the departure of producer Martin Hannett (Joy Division, Buzzcocks) and the addition of drummer Bruce Mitchell, who would remain a longtime collaborator with chief member, guitarist Vini Reilly. LC is as powerful as the debut, a fantastic collection of guitar excursions that transcend genre. This is also the first album to feature Reilly's speak-sing vocal style on a number of songs (including The Missing Boy" a tribute to the recently deceased leader of Joy Division, Ian Curtis). Another stellar album.

2 - DURUTTI COLUMN, THE - LC - (CD) 
1972


After debut album The Return of the Durutti Column was released, Vini Reilly decided to record its follow-up himself on a four-track cassette deck at home. Teaming up with drummer and fellow Manchester native Bruce Mitchell, the second Durutti Column album LC (named after Lotta Continua, a far-left radical Italian group) was another inspired musical collaboration. Though self-produced, the album retained traces of Reillys earlier work with Martin Hannett. This second set of evocative electric guitar compositions features a melding of Reillys urbane, contemplative style with Mitchells crisp, deliberate drumming. LC opens with "Sketch for Dawn (1)", incorporating Reillys unadorned spoken / sung vocals. The duo syncs up perfectly on album highlights such as the up-tempo "Jacqueline," the intimate "Messidor," and "The Missing Boy," a tribute to Reillys friend Ian Curtis of Joy Division. As equally powerful and in some ways better than the Durutti Columns debut, LC expands on the emotional promise of that album by continuing to transcend genre while offering a more song-oriented and accessible take on an increasingly unique approach to composition. Its an understated and inspiring masterpiece from the pre-shoegaze guitar maestro..

3 - DURUTTI COLUMN, THE - THE RETURN OF THE DURUTTI COLUMN - (LP) 
4 MEN WITH BEARDS


Despite the title, this is the debut album from Manchester's Durutti Column, originally released on the legendary Factory Records label in 1980. This album is a collaboration between guitarist, and the only permanent member of the band, Vini Reilly and producer/keyboard player Martin Hannett (Joy Division, Buzzcocks). Though lumped in with the post-punk movement, The Durutti Column's debut is hardly reminiscent of what that term brings to mind. The Return Of The Durutti Column is a collection of guitar based instrumentals melding rock, folk, classical, electronica and the avant-garde. Absolutely stunning.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Sketch For Summer 02. Requiem For A Father 03. Katherine 04. Conduct 05. Beginning 06. Jazz 07. Sketch For Winter 08. Collette 09. In 'd'
