Celebrating 25 years since the release of the seminal 1998 album by The Durutti Column.
Re-mastered with 5 bonus tracks: It’s Your Life, Babe, Kiss of Def, In the City , New Order Tribute and Drinking Song (version). Time Was GIGANTIC… was the final Factory Records release for The Durutti Column and the last release for the label before it closed.
The edition features extensive liner notes by Factory Records and band expert James Nice. The original artwork has been revisited by the original designers 8VO (Mark Holt and Hamish Muir). The band and lead member Vini Reilly were one of the first signings to Factory Records. The band 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 Chromatics, Jonny Marr and John Cooper Clarke.
