Pawn Shoppe Heart

The Von Bondies
Pawn Shoppe Heart
(Sire)
No wonder Jack White beat up Von Bondies singer Jason Stoll-steimer in a December barfight. Pawn Shoppe Heart is more ferocious and kicks more ass than anything in the White Stripes’ lo-fi catalogue. With echoes of The Stooges and MC5, the Bon-dies give birth to a fresh dose of guitar-fuelled fury from Detroit RAWK City. Stollsteimer howls his way through songs like the booty-shake stomp “C’mon C’mon” and the smouldering “Mairead.” Watch out, The Von Bondies are the new peppermint candy.
