The Early Days of Durutti Column

Monday 06/04/20

I did an interview this morning with James Nice (and he was) about the early days of a band I played with, Durutti Column. The interview lasted 70 minutes which was surprising as I didn't think I could remember anything from over 40 years ago. Anyway, James has written a book about the infamous Factory Records Durutti Column’s label. The book is called Shadowplayers: The Rise and Fall of Factory Records.

James is now writing a book about Durutti Column. I’m not sure when the book will be coming out but no doubt I will post something on here.

Interestingly James sent me a couple of reviews of a Durutti Column gig in London that was just me on drums and Vinni Reilly on guitar. Here they are…..

From 1981. OMG!!!!
