6/10 Penrith Steve Customer review, 2nd August 2015
The Von Bondies rode the zeitgeisty wave of Detroit rock ‘n’ roll of the early 2000s that The White Stripes started. “Pawn Shoppe Heart” is their second album and major label debut which was released in 2004. Their sound is confident, frenetic, upfront and punchy. The guitars rock, there are loads of drum-fills and the melodies have the urgency required for such rock music. “C’mon C’mon” was the single to be released from this album and is probably the most immediate track. To me, it is reminiscent of The Cult, mainly because, purposefully or otherwise, front man Jason Stollsteimer sounds like Ian Astbury. The best track on here is “Tell Me What You See” on here which has a call-and-answer vocal between Stollsteimer, rhythm guitarist Christy Hunt and bassist Leann Banks as the female voices are in the vein of The Shangri-Las. Overall, it’s okay, it doesn’t have the bloody minded individuality of The White Stripes although it’s from the same pigeonhole.
