Album artwork for Treatise on the Steppenwolf by The Durutti Column

Factory Benelux presents the very first soundtrack album by The Durutti Column, the legendary ensemble fronted by virtuoso guitarist and composer Vini Reilly. 'Treatise on the Steppenwolf' is a soundtrack to the performance piece of the same name by experimental theatre group 12 Stars, written and directed by Gerard McInulty, first staged in Glasgow in May 2003. Freely adapted from the celebrated counter-culture novel by Hermann Hesse, the performance is a portrait a divided character in an ongoing state of conflict. The soundtrack album combines the studio recordings of the 12 pieces performed live by The Durutti Column during the Glasgow run, as well as two bonus live tracks recorded at the event, one featuring spoken-word narrative by cast member Carolyn Allen. The booklet includes background notes and images from the show.
