Welcome to Durutti
We are here to produce new and back catalogue releases for The Durutti Column.
Additionally some items you will see here for sale have been ‘returned’ to the band and now fall under their ownership.
It is primarily a label and a shop which is owned by the band to promote and sell their own goods. I am Phil and will be supporting the band in this venture.
We are often asked what is the best way to support the band and this is certainly a great way as this is all theirs; I will run the business element for a small cost and most the profit goes to the band.
We have less middle men.
Sales through the distributor to shops will be paid directly to the band for all new releases on the label.
We will do one thing well.
It’s all about Durutti – Simple
We are really interested in what you want to see and buy.

Released in 1983, label-owner Miguel met the band in the Manchester before subsequently inviting them to record a single in Portugal. As the story goes, Vini came and recorded a whole albums worth of material, which would be quickly developed into following releases. This was the pre-cursor to Without Mercy and it contains some beautiful little tunes and is highly under-rated and overlooked.
The original release was a soundboard recording of originally 4000 vinyl copies and a subsequent 1000 CD re-release on Kooky. “An interesting wheeler-dealer, involved in bootleg recordings at the time, arrived in his cream Rolls Royce at a Mayfair hotel restaurant that he had appointed. He brought cash and me and Vini scribbled out a contract and an agreement on a white napkin that had been surrounding Vini’s burnt bacon.
