A 6CD set containing the re-issue of the first four albums by the Durutti Column. Originally  
released on Factory Records label  between 1980 and 1984, these albums have been carefully

tapes at Tony Wilson's home and were passed on for this release by his son Oliver.  This six  
CD box set  is limited to 1175 copies and comprises of: Four fully re-mastered albums: 1.     
The Return Of The Durutti Column,  2. LC, 3. Another Setting,  4. Without Mercy, plus two

"Alan introduced Tony to me. Tony came round to see me, never having heard me play. Alan      
brought Tony round three times before I finally agreed to take part and put a band together   
with other musicians. I insisted that I would have control and all kinds of ridiculous        
things, which was just silly."                                                                
Vini Reilly explains in his most recent interview (for Scream City fanzine) how The Durutti   
Column was born.                                                                              
Alan was Alan Erasmus and Tony was Tony Wilson. In 1978 they were looking for a band their    
new record label, Factory Records.                                                            
The Durutti Column featuring Vini Reilly, a classically-trained pianist and virtuoso          
guitarist, took their name from Spanish revolutionary Buenaventura Durruti and the cartoon    
of Two Situationist Cowboys in the comic Le Retour De La Colonne Durutti (1966). Centred      
around Reilly, the then five-piece band recorded two tracks for FAC-2 A Factory Sample, the   
first ever music release on Factory Records. Vini, not happy with the band or the             
punk-styled recording, then walked out because it was "complete and total rubbish". Alan and  
Tony persuaded Vini to return, saying "you are The Durutti Column" and the rest is history.   
To this day, The Durutti Column is still essentially Vini Reilly. But whilst he is the        
constant, legendary Manchester musician, nay institution, Bruce Mitchell (ex-Alberto Y Trios  
Lost Paranoias) has been the drummer since the seminal album LC (1981). A succession of       
other guests has augmented the line-up over the years, notably John Metcalfe (The Duke        
Quartet), Tim Kellett (Olive, Simply Red) and Keir Stewart (Durutti producer and more since   
Always at the forefront of technology thanks to Factory's innovative (but sometimes           
misguided policies), The Durutti Column released the first cd-only popular music album with   
their Domo Arigato (1985) live album recorded live in Tokyo. Factory predicted "No vinyl      
within 5 years" but what did they know!? Later, The Guitar and Other Machines (1988) was the  
first ever commercially available album to be released on Digital Audio Tape. Perversely it   
was also promoted with a 7" flexi-disc - a relic of a bygone age. In 1995, the Factory Too    
album Sex and Death also appeared in interactive CD-ROM format. More recently, and keeping    
up their record of having appeared on every incarnation of Factory Records, their debut for   
Tony Wilson's all-too-shortlived F4 Records, was the digital download-only E.P. Heaven Sent   
(It Was Called Digital. It Was Heaven Sent) (2004). The launch of this release was            
celebrated with a live webcast of a gig from Shetland.                                        
Throughout it all, musical experimentation has always been the keynote of The Durutti         
Column's music. Able to flit from Classical on Without Mercy (1984) to House on Obey The      
Time (1990) via Opera on Vini Reilly (1990), it has never been possible to pin Vin down.      
Famously, he did some sterling work on Morrissey's debut album Viva Hate. But, when asked to  
work on the follow-up, he declined because Morrissey didn't want to take it to the next       
level, to experiment.                                                                         
Helljoy it, buy it or D2H!
