Von Bondies : Lack Of Communication
White Stripes-endorsed garage rock thrills...
rock explosion, The Von Bondies have been overshadowed
b y the success of their more illustrious sponsors - something
that this re-release of last year's Jack White produced album
seeks to redress.
Busting straight in with the title track's unabashed Stooges
rip-off, they make their intentions clear: experimental to a
degree (see the surf-rock of 'Shallow Grave'), but more content
to pitch their idolatry with an ironic raised eyebrow. Paired
with the messy rock'n'blues of the Soledad Brothers, however,
or the punchy soul of The Dirtbombs, The Von Bondies are further
evidence that Detroit is starting to realise its promise as the
most righteous city on earth.
