About the event

Doolin Arts is delighted to announce a performance by the acclaimed Berlin-based ‘Crime & The City Solution’ in Enniscrone on Wednesday May 15th , as part of an intimate acoustic tour of Ireland.

While Crime (Acoustic) first saw the light supporting the legendary Mark Lanegan in Europe and the US in 2019, Crime & the City Solution were originally formed in Sydney by Simon Bonney in the late 70s.

Their early performances from 1977-1979 would have a big impact on key figures of the early Melbourne art-punk/post punk scene. Their 1986 debut album, ‘Room of Lights’, includes one of their most beloved songs, ‘Six Bells Chime’.

Recorded in London, this line-up of the band reached its zenith with a historic swansong performance of the track in Wim Wenders’ 1987 cinematic masterpiece ‘Wings of Desire’.

Their track ‘The Adversary’ also appeared on the soundtrack to Wenders follow-up ‘Until The End of the World’.

Previous incarnations of the band have included Mick Harvey (Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds; PJ Harvey), Roland S Howard (The Birthday Party), Alexander Hacke (Einstürzende Neubauten) and Jim White (The Dirty Three).

In 2023’s Crime released their sixth studio album ‘the killer, ‘one of the albums of the year’ according to Louder Than War’. Mute Records (Depeche Mode, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, Goldfrapp) have also recently reissued a number of their albums.

On this acoustic Irish tour, audiences will hear the songs in the style they were first written, capturing an intimate atmosphere and the simple joy of friends playing together, unmediated by technology.

“The edge and depth of my voice is not a natural thing that great singers have like Simon Bonney” - Nick Cave

‘ ...... like a Gun Club-like fusion of blues, punk and gloomy rock’ The Guardian

“.....one of my personal heroes and inspirations the great Simon Bonney” Mark Lanegan
