British rocker VINI REILLY is back at work less than six months after suffering a stroke - he's recording new songs and compiling a photobook of his career.
The Durutti Column frontman was hospitalised for four days last September (10) and lost some feeling in his left hand after falling ill.
But he's now laying down tracks for a new album - and admits his songs are "introspective" and slower because he struggles to play his guitar quickly since the stroke.
Reilly tells Mojo magazine, "I can't play fast, having the strokes (sic) has made me introspective. I'm looking for a bit of calm now, and resolution."
The rocker is also putting together a publication of pictures showing the story of his career - after turning down an offer to pen his memoirs because "there are people to protect".
He adds, "We're halfway through. I've taken photos of my family, (late record label boss) Tony (Wilson)... people still part of my life."
