Crime & The City Solution

On tour NOW-new song!

LISTEN TO A NEW TRACK HERE

ON TOUR NOW

 

Crime & the City Solution – who embark on a worldwide tour this week, their first in over 20 years – have made a brand new track available, “My Love Takes Me There”, the first taste of American Twilight.

Recorded in Detroit and scheduled to hit shelves in spring of 2013, this will be Crime & the City Solution’s first new album release since 1990’s Paradise Discotheque.

Listen to “My Love Takes Me There”:

http://soundcloud.com/muterecords/crime-the-city-solution-my-1/s-voYLF

For this latest incarnation of Crime & The City Solution, Berlin era members Simon Bonney (vocals), Bronwyn Adams (violin) and Alexander Hacke (guitar), are joined by renowned visual artist Danielle de PicciottoJim White (drums, The Dirty Three), David Eugene Edwards (guitar, 16 Horsepower / Wovenhand), Troy Gregory (bass, The Dirtbombs / Swans / Spiritualised) and Matthew Smith (keyboards).

The live show will feature new music from American Twilight as well as reinterpretations of songs from the Berlin and London periods. It will also feature, for the first time, a powerful visual component designed by new member Danielle de Picciotto.

Using back projection on large screens, the imagery will accompany the live performance as a cinematic embodiment of the Crime musicscape, and will perfectly complement the grand narratives and dynamism that are the hallmark of Crime’s music and live shows.

Crime & the City Solution recently released A History Of Crime – Berlin 1987 – 1991, the latest in a new series of An Introduction To…  compilations with tracklistings chosen by the band. For this Crime & the City Solution have selected tracks from the three Berlin era albums: Shine (1988), The Bride Ship (1989) and Paradise Discotheque (1990). The album also features the band’s swansong, ‘The Adversary’, from the film Until The End Of The World (Wim Wenders,1991).

 Crime & the City Solution had several incarnations, the first of which was formed by Simon Bonney in Sydney, Australia, in 1977/78. Mk II saw the band based in Melbourne before Simon Bonney was encouraged to move to England in 1984 by Mick Harvey (Birthday Party / The Bad Seeds) who joined the band along with Rowland S Howard, his brother Harry on bass and one time Swell Maps drummer Epic Soundtracks.

In 1987, Bonney and Harvey moved to Berlin, and it’s here that the A History Of Crime – Berlin 1987 – 1991 takes its inspiration. The band at this point comprised of Simon Bonney, Mick Harvey, Einstürzende Neubauten’s Alexander Hacke, Thomas Stern, ex-DAF/Liaisons Dangereuses Chrislo Haas, and Bonney’s co-writer Bronwyn Adams.
