Originally formed in 1977 by Simon Bonney, then disbanded in 1979, a new version was formed in 1985 including members of the recently deceased Birthday Party. With only one record since then, Simon has put together a new Solution with a brand new record out on Mute on vinyl, CD and download on October 20th 2023. The album was recorded in Berlin. Core members Simon Bonney and Bronwyn Adams were joined by Frederic Lyenn (Piano, Bass, Synth), Donald Baldie (Guitar), Georgio Valentino (Synth, Guitar), Chris Hughes (Drums, Percussion) and Joshua Murphy (Piano, Guitar), and for the first time they worked with a producer, Martin J. Fiedler, who also added Synth and Mellotron to the album. Expect cinematic post punk, gothic country and rough blues rockers. Expect melancholy, joy and sadness.
Supporting we have Joshua Murphy (Crime & the City Solution) who's debut EP Lowlands crafts an almost Nick Cave sound, both somber and atmospheric in his storytelling. Beautiful music indeed.
