LC is the second studio album by English band The Durutti Column. It was released in November 1981 through Manchester record label Factory.


The album was the first to feature drummer and percussionist Bruce Mitchell. The song "The Missing Boy" is a tribute to songwriter Vini Reilly's friend and label-mate Ian Curtis of Joy Division, who committed suicide in the previous year.


LC was released in November 1981.

It was reissued in January 2013 on the reactivated Factory Benelux as a double-CD package.[1]
