The Durutti Column - Time Was Gigantic ... When We Were Kids 2xLP
Celebrating 25 years since its release, Time Was Gigantic ... When We Were Kids, the seminal 1998 album by The Durutti Column. The band and lead member Vini Reilly were one of the first signings to Antony Wilson's Factory Records, and Time Was Gigantic was the final Factory Records release for The Durutti Column and the last release for the label before it closed. The new edition features extensive liner notes by Factory Records and band expert James Nice, and the original artwork has been revisited by the original designers 8VO (Mark Holt and Hamish Muir). The band (and in particular the guitar playing of Vini) has developed a cult following over the past 40 years with fans of the band including Brian Eno, John Frusciante (who called Vini "the best guitarist in the world"), The Avalanches, The Chromatics, Johnny Marr, and John Cooper Clarke, to name a few. Remastered; includes five bonus tracks: "It's Your Life, Babe," "Kiss of Def," "In the City," "New Order Tribute," "Drinking Song (version)." Double LP version marks the album's first vinyl release.
