The best Von Bondies post, ever

Some great Detroit garage/blues from the White Stripes/Black Keys school.......they in fact opened shows for the early White Stripes. Raw, stripped down, some fine primal garage rock for thoe of you who like that....and again, if you DON'T, why are you here? Formed in the late 1990's, they've had a rather long list of members, so I'll pass on listing them all, let's just say they have been the "playground" of guitarist/vocalist Jason Stollsteimer....their first release was 2001's "Lack of Communication" (produced by Jack White), contains some good hard blues slammers like "Shallow Grave" and "Cryin'", which is sometimes also referred to as "Meg and Jack are Married"....make of THAT what you will!

They followed that up with "Rare and Raw" which I don't have and evidently is pretty much made up of live BBC tracks.....calling all "friends of the blog", especially those in that state up North. Next was perhaps the best, "Pawn Shoppe Heart", lotsa good tunes like "C'mon C'mon" and "Crawl Through the Darkness" among others. Good album.

Their most recent release was 2009's "Love, Hate, Then There's You", which is another pretty good effort. I think I recall something about this bunch (or Stollsteimer) having some type of a hip-hop style "fued" with The White Stripes (or, more specifically, Jack White).....I forget the details and don't really care enough to look it up.

Three pretty good albums, here, really.......good old Detroit-style hard blues rock, and what on earth is wrong with that?
