– Simon Bonney has revived the Crime and the City Solution name, and plans for an east coast tour have been announced. The newest incarnation of CATCS, boasting Einstürzende Neubauten’s Alexander Hackey on guitar and The Dirty Three’s Jim White on drums, have also announced the imminent release of a new studio album.
Following the release of a best-of collection, it’s a veritable flurry of activity for the Detroit-based Bonney after a 20 year absence. The tour will be Crime and the City Solution’s first-ever Australian tour, and Sleepy Sun (USA) will be providing support.
