Originally relesed as part of A Factory Sample released Dec. 1978 (with material from Joy Division, Cabaret Voltaire and John Dowie), the song No Communication was recorded by the earliest line up of The Durutti Column (consisting of drummer Chris Joyce, guitarist Dave Rowbotham, Vini Reilly, guitarist for Manchester punk rock band Ed Banger and The Nosebleeds, vocalist Phil Rainford, keyboardist Stephen Hopkins and bassist Tony Bowers) and it was one of the only two recorded during this lineup.

After the recording of these two songs the band broke up after a dispute with Tony Wilson making The Durutti Column a solo project of guitarrist Vini Reilly.

The song is a chilling prediction of things to come...

Lyrics:
Dance... to the disco radio
Sit... at my television technicolour show
Wait... for the numbers to begin
Don't know
Self... addressed envelopes
Tape loop... on my videophone, videophone
No, it's a joke
No communication, the human race
No communication, not face to face
Face to face with the human race
Face to face with the human humans
A warning to those who build ruins
Keep the traffic moving
Travel for pleasure alone
Liquid stockings repairable but stolen
A warning to those who build ruins
No communication, the human race
No communication, not face to face
Dance.
