Synopsis

Album Description
Heavyweight 180gm vinyl LP reissue of this 1981 album. The second Durutti Column album, originally released on Factory Records, 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.

Self portrait
loteq | Regensburg | 02/18/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Generally regarded as a false step, Vini Reilly's second album features vocals sung by himself. In retrospect, it's not that bad. His shy and calm singing suits the songs and it doesn't sound cheesy or unlistenable. While the debut "The return of the DC" was a collection of sketches and soundscapes, "LC" is one of Vini's most song-oriented and accessible albums. Best tracks here are the sad "Sketch for dawn I", the up-tempo "Jacqueline", and the intimate "Messidor". This CD also contains some worthwhile bonus tracks. Overall, the playful rhythms and the gorgeous guitar lines still sound timeless. Another classic album in Durutti Column's discography!"

"This, with the benefit of many years hindsight, was always my favourite DC album. Perhaps watching the squirrels scuttle along the oak branches outside my dorm in time to Vinis' wandering guitar lines, wrapped in a something close enough to a song to have student meaning. Whatever. Don't have a problem with his singing because that was never really it. Perhaps this effort is slightly more robust in texture than the ethereal Return of the DC, but I think the fact that this is appreciably Vini rather than Vini plus Martin Hannet is what shades it over Return for me."
Very Good Indeed

"I definitely like this this one a little more than Return of, even though they're both essential if you're gonna get into Durutti Column. Bruce Mitchell's drums go with Vini's style a little better than Hannett's beats and synth experiments if you ask me. But, most importantly the music is all beautiful New Wave Manchester Jazz, a classic Factory record."
