Crime & The City Solution



Love the light of which you give / A human touch eternal gift
Against the dark a gentle face / I celebrate your sensual grace
Oh Goddess

Crime & The City Solution release ‘Goddess’, the first track to be taken from their brand new album, American Twilight (out 25 March) and announce an appearance at Primavera Sound, Barcelona on 25 May following a series of Australian dates in February that includes All Tomorrow’s Parties curated by The Drones (full details below).

The new single ‘Goddess’ – one of the most celebratory songs from the album – was mixed by Flood and is out on 4 March 2013. The video, directed by Danielle de Picciotto can be seen here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u8kpy15K14k

After two decades away, the legendary Crime & The City Solution returned in 2012 with a series of dates that included the Queen Elizabeth Hall, London and, with a new incarnation based in a new home city, Detroit, they release a new album, American Twilight on 25 March 2013.

This latest embodiment of Crime & The City Solution sees Berlin era members Simon Bonney (vocals), Bronwyn Adams (violin) and Alexander Hacke (guitar), joined by renowned visual artist Danielle de Picciotto, Jim White (drums – Dirty Three, Cat Power), David Eugene Edwards (guitar – 16 Horsepower, Wovenhand), Troy Gregory (bass – Witches) and Matthew Smith (Moog / keyboards – Outrageous Cherry, Volebeats).

Formed by Simon Bonney at the age of 16, Crime & The City Solution’s early performances in Sydney had a big impact on key figures of the early Melbourne art-punk/post punk scene. In 1984, Bad Seed Mick Harvey shipped Bonney to England to form the London based Crime with their friend the brilliant and ever influential ex-Birthday Party guitarist Rowland S Howard, his brother Harry Howard on bass and Epic Soundtracks on drums. Two years on, having toured Europe, the UK and US and released several EPs and an album, this lineup reached its zenith at its finale in a historic swansong performance in Wim Wenders’ cinematic masterpiece ‘Wings of Desire’.

Bonney has said his true voice and the definitive sound he sought emerged with the next, Berlin based incarnation of Crime & The City Solution, which recorded three studio albums and a live CD between 1986 and 1991. With a more experimental sound, which drew less on Melbourne post punk scene roots and took a more explorative musical approach, this lineup was 50% Berliner and featured Einstürzende Neubauten’s Alex Hacke on guitar, ex-DAF/Liaisons Dangereuses electronic genius Chrislo Haas on vintage Korg patchbay synth, free jazz trio bassist Thomas Stern, with Australians Mick Harvey on drums and Bonney’s lyrical collaborator Bronwyn Adams on violin.

A well received US and European tour at the end of 2012 saw Crime & The City Solution premiere many of the new tracks from American Twilight including ‘Goddess’, ‘The Colonel (Doesn’t Call Anymore)’ and the title track, which you can hear on the album trailer here: http://youtu.be/urOCsFSY7U8.
