LET THE EXCITATION BEGIN –
CRIME AND THE CITY SOLUTION LIVE AGAIN
This October, Crime & the City Solution will be on the road touring for the first time in over 20 years with dates in the following cities: Denver, Detroit, Chicago, Brooklyn, Los Angeles and San Francisco.
Crime & the City Solution have had several home bases and personnel changes, the first of which was formed by Simon Bonney in Sydney, Australia in 1977. In the next iteration, the band was based out of Melbourne. In 1984, Simon Bonney was encouraged to move to England 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 again to Berlin, and it’s here that the A History Of Crime – Berlin 1987 – 1991takes its inspiration. At this point, the band consisted 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.
For this latest incarnation of Crime & the City Solution, the line up will feature Berlin era members Simon Bonney (vocals), Bronwyn Adams (violin) and Alexander Hacke (guitar), and will be joined by renowned visual artist Danielle de Picciotto, Jim 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 a
