Durutti Column was founded in 1978 by Tony Wilson and Alan Erasmus who built a band around the remnants of local punk rock band Fast Breeder: drummer Chris Joyce and guitarist Dave Rowbotham; calling the then incomplete group as The Durutti Column. Former guitarist for local punk rock band Ed Banger and The Nosebleeds, Vini Reilly, joined the band later on being followed by Phil Rainford on vocals, and Tony Bowers, formerly of Alberto Y Lost Trios Paranoias, on bass.

The band stayed an ongoing project of guitarist (and occasional pianist) Vini Reilly who is often accompanied by drummer Bruce Mitchell. Other current members are Keir Stewart (on bass, keyboards and harmonica) and Poppy Morgan (on piano).
