The first time I saw (or indeed ever heard PJ Bond) was a few years ago at The Fest. Aaron Scott (of Attica! Attica!) was playing acoustic and asked if his Bond could sit in and play a song or two and I was happy to oblige. Right away, I was struck with Bond’s forward and honest singer/songwriter nature, a style not incomparable to Rocky Votolato. After he played I managed to pick up a copy of his full-length, You Didn’t Know I Was Alphabetical. After returning home, I was quick to put the CD on and hear the rest of Bond’s collection. I was instantly let down. All the songs felt flat; even the song I had heard him play so emotionally live seemed drained of life and somehow boring. I have since made the assessment that while PJ Bond’s recorded material has something left to be desired, his live show is “where the magic happens.” Which is why I was so excited for his live EP, 22 April: Vienna, Austria.
