Crime & The City Solution : Goddess


I don’t know a good goddamn about Crime & The City Solution but it seems I should. Formed in Melbourne in 1977 by Simon Bonney, the band released two albums and disbanded, then reformed in the late ’80s and released three more albums. Goddess, their first release in over two decades, is a mean, dirty, psych-infused punk tune somewhere between Nick Cave, Velvet Underground and Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, only but it seems insulting to compare this legacy act to relative babies like BRMC. Anyway, it’s very, very good.
