Wait, is this a Fu Manchu video? Might as well be, what with that hoary carburetor riff and the muscle car rumbling into gear. Nah, it’s the Von Bondies. And they never sounded better, unless you’re one of those people who actually watch “Rescue Me.” The clip doesn’t truck with play-acting, melodrama, or even special effects. It’s just a cool few minutes you can use to work on your strut. The Von Bondies wander through party stores, then take in the sights on Michigan Ave., both the beat down and rising up portions of the pockmarked thoroughfare as it rolls west out of downtown Detroit City. Jason Stollsteimer stands resolute, and we’re reminded again of just how beneficial to a band a foxy bass player can be.
