A.A. Bondy Talk about your extreme makeovers: A.A. Bondy used to be Scott Bondy, front man for Nirvana/Foo Fighters knockoff Verbena (Dave Grohl even produced their major label release in '99). But with his solo debut, American Hearts, Bondy has re-emerged dressed in the acoustic garb (gob iron included) of the Bob Dylan/Mississippi John Hurt folk-blues school. You wouldn't call either incarnation innovative or all that memorable, but Bondy's finger-picking and dissolution-narratives are a lot easier on the ears. The lesson? If you're gonna affiliate with an era, make it one with longer legs. With the country-flavored Buschovski side project, The Pink Ponies. Snug Harbor (John Schacht)
