Crime & the City Solution

Share Brand New Single And Invite To Remaining European Dates

CRIME & THE CITY SOLUTION SHARE BRAND NEW SINGLE, THEIR COVER OF THE DOORS’ PEOPLE ARE STRANGE

EUROPEAN TOUR CONTINUES

5 Nov – Łódź PL, Soundedit Festival
12 Nov – Athens GR, Fuzz Club
27 Nov – Paris FR, La Maroquinerie

Crime & the City Solution returned to the studio for the first time in nearly 10 years to record a special cover of The Doors’ classic 1967 ode to alienation, ‘People Are Strange’. This new recording, the first with this Berlin line up, oozes the original’s European cabaret roots and arrives as the veil between the worlds has started to thin, just in time for Hallowe’en:

Simon Bonney and Bronwyn Adams continue their Europe tour dates with three newly announced shows in November 2022, with the new Berlin based incarnation of Crime & the City Solution. Back after a 10-year hiatus, the newly formed line-up will continue their European tour with three dates in 2022, at Łódź festival in Poland on 5 November, at Athens’ Fuzz Club on 12 November and at La Maroquinerie in Paris on 27 November – full details below.

Formed in Sydney by Simon Bonney at the age of 16, Crime & the City Solution’s early performances from 1977-1979 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, with 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 Alexander Hacke on guitar, ex-DAF/Liaisons Dangereuses electronic genius Chrislo Haas on vintage Korg patchbay synth, and free jazz bassist Thomas Stern. The lineup was completed by Australians Mick Harvey on drums and Bonney’s longtime lyrical collaborator Bronwyn Adams on violin.

In 2012, now based in their new home city of Detroit, the band returned with their fifth studio album, American Twilight: “as much an elegy to the American Dream that’s turned into a global nightmare as it is a damn fine rock & roll album” -The Quietus
