Our friend wakes from her slumber, blinks in the sunlight and rubs her eyes. Crime smiles, all mischief and wonder. Let the excitation begin - Crime and the City Solution live again.
Crime and the City Solution announce details of their first tour in over 20 years - this is one of only six US shows!
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 / Spiritualized) and Matthew Smith (keyboards).
The live show will feature new music from "American Twilight" (recorded in Detroit - set for early 2013 release), 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 performances as a cinematic embodiment of the Crime musicscape, and will perfectly compliment the grand narratives and dynamism that are the hallmark of Crime's music and live shows.
