2013 release. "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 Reilly's earlier work with Martin Hannett. This second set of evocative electric guitar compositions features a melding of Reilly's urbane, contemplative style with Mitchell's crisp, deliberate drumming. LC opens with 'Sketch for Dawn (1)', incorporating Reilly's 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 Reilly's friend Ian Curtis of Joy Division."
