1 - DURUTTI COLUMN, THE - LC - (CD) 
1972


After debut album The Return of the Durutti Column was released, Vini Reilly decided to record its follow-up himself on a four-track cassette deck at home. Teaming up with drummer and fellow Manchester native Bruce Mitchell, the second Durutti Column album LC (named after Lotta Continua, a far-left radical Italian group) was another inspired musical collaboration. Though self-produced, the album retained traces of Reillys earlier work with Martin Hannett. This second set of evocative electric guitar compositions features a melding of Reillys urbane, contemplative style with Mitchells crisp, deliberate drumming. LC opens with "Sketch for Dawn (1)", incorporating Reillys unadorned spoken / sung vocals. The duo syncs up perfectly on album highlights such as the up-tempo "Jacqueline," the intimate "Messidor," and "The Missing Boy," a tribute to Reillys friend Ian Curtis of Joy Division. As equally powerful and in some ways better than the Durutti Columns debut, LC expands on the emotional promise of that album by continuing to transcend genre while offering a more song-oriented and accessible take on an increasingly unique approach to composition. Its an understated and inspiring masterpiece from the pre-shoegaze guitar maestro..
