RELEASED: 7th June 2024

Format:  Yellow Coloured Vinyl LP
Cat No:  LSTUMM36

Crime & the City Solution’s debut full-length album, ‘Room Of Lights’, reissued on yellow vinyl, a part of a vinyl reissue series via Mute.

Following their ‘The Dangling Man’ EP and ‘Just South of Heaven’ mini-LP, ‘Room Of Lights’ was originally released in 1986 and featured the line-up of Simon Bonney, former Birthday Party stalwarts Mick Harvey and Rowland S. Howard, Rowland’s bassist brother Harry Howard, and drummer Epic Soundtracks (formerly of Swell Maps and Jacobites).

The album includes the remarkable ‘Six Bells Chime’, which caught the attention of acclaimed German filmmaker Wim Wenders, who invited the band to perform the song live in his 1988 masterpiece, ‘Wings of Desire’. The album showcases great creativity filled with tension and marks the last release featuring Crime & the City Solution’s ‘London line-up’.
