商品説明

Following on the heels of two successful EPs, Crime & the City Solution turned around to record some of their best material for Room of Lights. With violinist Bronwyn Adams added to the camp, the band acted as dynamically jagged counterparts to their peers; the music they now embraced was a rough and ready rock that slotted itself nicely under a gothic canvas -- they were and remain post-punk's forgotten kings. And although fans may cite some of the band's later work as better, it really isn't. It may be smoother, more refined, but nothing had the vibrant impact of the sound slammed home on this album. Its urgency jangles, its cacophony is dichotomous, and, at times, the underlying energy is breathtaking as the band storms through a great set. From Right Man, Wrong Man and Hey Sinkiller to the sleepily ominous No Money, No Honey, it's hard to find fault. And if there could be a breakaway hit on an album like this, Six Bells Chime fits the bill. Director Wim Wenders included the band and song in his now classic 1986 film Wings of Desire. Elsewhere, The Brother Song and Adventure round out the set. While the LP is hard to find, the CD reissue is still around -- and boasts a clutch of bonus tracks taken from the Just South of Heaven and The Dangling Man EPs, an opportunity for the full scope of the band's early material to be fully sampled. Yes, the band would retain much of their sound across an impressive canon, but really, the earlier days of Crime are better. Their sound was grungy in a different time and space, long before the term was coined. ~ Amy Hanson, All Music Guide

このアルバムは唯一無二の作品。ROWLAND、MICK、EPIC、誰が曲を書こうがSIMONが歌えばクライムになる。’SIX BELLS CHIME’の素晴らしさはもちろん、SIMONとROWLANDの相性が抜群で、時の流れを完全に止めている。ゴシックを超越した世界。風邪をひいて寝込んでると尚入り込める。

Crime & The City Solution

Despite roots dating back as far as 1978, Crime & the City Solution did not truly emerge until 1984, coming to life in the wake of the dissolution of the seminal Birthday Party. The group was led by evocative singer/songwriter Simon Bonney, a Melbourne, Australia native who led a series of bands under the verbose Crime name throughout the late '70s and early '80s; a longtime friend of the Birthday
