The Durutti Column

From Academic Kids

The Durutti Column is the ongoing band project of guitarist Vini Reilly (born in Didsbury, Greater Manchester, August 1953), usually accompanied by drummer Bruce Mitchell (and, on the group's debut album, producer Martin Hannett).

The Durutti Column were one of the first bands to be signed to Factory Records; they appeared on the label's first release, A Factory Sampler, and the label's boss, Tony Wilson, was also their manager for many years. The group's often instrumental music encompasses elements of jazz, folk, classical music and rock, always underpinned by the distinctive sound of Vini's guitar playing.

Vini Reilly also played guitar Morrissey's first solo album, Viva Hate.

The Durutti Column's name is derived from that of Buenaventura Durruti, who led a column of anarchists during the Spanish Civil War. Reilly apparently saw a Situationist International poster which included the phrase "The Return of the Durutti Column", mis-spelled, a phrase which eventually became the title of the group's first album.
