The Michigan-based rock band Von Bondies, who scored a Top 30 hit single in 2004 with indie anthem C'mon C'mon, are playing Belfast's Limelight club this Sunday.

Probably their best-known track, C'mon C'mon was taken from their second album Pawn Shoppe Heart, and their most recent LP release, Love, Hate and Then There's You (Majordomo Records), sees something of a more developed sound for the US stompers and includes songs produced by Butch Walker and Rick Parker who have collaborated with the likes of Black Rebel Motorcycle club and All-American Rejects.

Formed in 1997, before becoming the Von Bondies in 2000, the band's line-ups have changed frequently. Frontman Jason Stollsteimer and drummer Don Blum, still remain at the helm and the Von Bondies regularly headline world tours.

However, there's no love lost between The Von Bondies and fellow Detroit band White Stripes, as an altercation between the two singers resulted in a trip to hospital for Stollsteimer and a court appearance for Jack White. Here's hoping Jason plays nice with Belfast support act The Minutes.
