The Durutti Column: Riverside Studios, London

Neil Taylor, New Musical Express, 15 September 1984

SIXTY FOOT up in the Riverside gantry, amongst the clutter of microphones, lights, and soundmen, we witness the return of The Durutti Column. A grand piano booming converts into a delicate trickle of keys, and introduces Vini Reilly and his right hand man, percussionist Bruce Mitchell: if you're coming back, you might as well come back in style.
