Australian Simon Bonney’s resurrected art-rock group Crime and the City Solution — which, during the ’80s, included members of The Birthday Party, Swell Maps and Einstürzende Neubauten — will release its first new album in 23 years next month, and they’ve just dropped the first video from the record, a clip for opening track “Goddess,” which you can see right here.
For the new album, Bonney has reunited Berlin-era members Bronwyn Adams (violin) and Alexander Hacke (guitar) and enlisted visual artist Danielle de Picciotto, drummer Jim White of The Dirty Three, guitarist David Eugene Edwards of 16 Horsepower and Woven Hand, former Dirtbombs bassist Troy Gregory and keyboardist Matthew Smith.
