Crime and the City Solution Biography

Crime and the City Solution is an Australian rock music band, formed by the Australian singer and songwriter Simon Bonney.

They had four distinct line-ups: Sydney in 1977–78, Melbourne in 1979, and two groupings in Berlin from 1985–1990. The only common member in all four line-ups was Bonney.

Other members included: current and former members of The Birthday Party (Mick Harvey and Rowland S. Howard); former Swell Maps drummer Epic Soundtracks; and Alexander Hacke from Einstürzende Neubauten.

Crime and the City Solution completed four studio albums and a number of E.Ps during its existence, and a live album has since been released. Further early recordings have surfaced on the internet. Bonney released two solo albums in the 1990s.

In late 2011, Bonney announced that Crime would re-form to record a new album for Mute Records in 2012. Personnel will be Bonney, Bronwyn Adams, Alexander Hacke, David Eugene Edwards of the American bands 16 Horsepower and Woven Hand, Troy Gregory, Matthew Smith, Jim White of the Australian group Dirty Three, and Danielle de Picciotto. Recording will take place in Detroit.
