NEWS: The Durutti Column to release first wax single this century



THE FIRST standalone vinyl single to come from Vini Reilly’s brittle guitar soundscapers The Durutti Column in the 21st century is due to be released this summer – on Vini’s birthday.

The 7″, to be pressed on “crystal clear” vinyl, will contain two tracks: “Free From All Chaos”, as first issued on 2014’s Chronicle 2CD box set; with the previously unissued “Number Three”, which was recorded at the same time, on the flip.

“Number Three” features the vocals of singer/songwriter Caoilfhionn Rose, who has been a regular collaborator in recent years.

The single heralds a series of vinyl pressings of Durutti material originally put out for the Kooky label, for which Vini released a clutch of albums between 2008 and 2014.

The single, which is limited to a pressing of 750, is available to pre-order here.
