The Durutti Column

Live in Japan 1984 + 1985

4 disc remastered set with unreleased material + DVD

Domo Arigato followed on the heels of ambitious ‘modern classical’ album Without Mercy a year earlier, and saw composer/guitarist Vini Reilly and percussionist Bruce Mitchell augmented by John Metcalfe on viola and Tim Kellet on trumpet. Their show-cum-recital at the Kan’i Hoken Hall on 25 April was recorded digitally and filmed on two 35mm cameras. ‘Mixing down was fun,’ recalled Durutti manager/mentor Anthony H. Wilson. ‘We were on a flight out next morning so Nippon Columbia hired a mobile studio recording truck and we mixed from midnight to 6 a.m.’

In fact the group always considered this rather hurried mix imperfect, and therefore for this expanded 2017 reissue Factory Benelux have returned to the original soundboard tapes and remastered the performance, in the process restoring the original running order.
