The Durutti Column | M24J (Anthology)

M24J (Anthology) is a collection of valuable passages recorded by The Durutti Column between 1979 and 2011 for various iterations of Factory Records, including poignant tributes to manager/mentor Anthony H. Wilson.
Available as a double CD set, and also a double vinyl, M24J (Anthology) includes selections from The Return Of The Durutti Column, LC, Another Setting, Short Stories For Pauline, Without Mercy, Circuses And Bread, The Guitar And Other Machines, Vini Reilly, Obey The Time, Treatise On The Steppenwolf and A Paean To Wilson.
"The Durutti Column was Tonyís baby," says Durutti mainman Vini Reilly. "We were the first act signed up to his Factory club night, and the first band signed to Factory Records. Tony became my mentor, somebody to look up to. He was a very tough character, yet he was very gentle. He had many sides. The biggest arguments with Tony were that he wanted to stop me singing with my schoolboy lyrics and my dreadful voice."
Reilly's music remains resolutely unclassifiable, and sounds better and better with each passing year. "Donít listen to the form," he insists, "listen to the content. Don't listen to the style, the tradition, the technique, just the content of the music. Then judge. People say The Durutti Column is this or that. I donít care so long as we make good music. There's so much good music around. Don't bother with form. Just enjoy."
Bonus tracks on the CD version include three tracks recorded live in Leeds on 7 October 1980, these being the earliest preserved professional in concert recordings by Vini Reilly. The cover portrait of Vini Reilly is by Mark Warner.
