Boomkat Product Review:
Paean to Wilson is arguably Vini Reilly and the Durutti Columns most important and consistent piece of work since the demise of the original and seminal Factory Records in the early 1990’s.
Reissued in close proximity to Paul Morley’s new biography of the pivotal Manchester impressario and co-founder of Factory Records, ‘A Paean To Wilson’ expresses Vini’s enduring admiration for the man who gave him his first record deal, and continued to sing his praises until he passed in 2007.
The feeling is clearly mutual as the record unfolds as one of Vini’s tenderest works since his Factory era, transmuting love and respect into 18 lyrical instrumentals and a few songs featuring vox, including canny use of Tony’s sardonic query “is this an artform, or are you just a technician” that trails off into vaporous contrails on the excellent, 10 minute long ‘Chant’.
