L.A. Weekly review of the show at Club Romper Stomper
“Friday night, he and DJ/ glam diva Asia Muka presented the latest installment of Romper Stomper at The Sunset Room, this one headlined by a group of charismatic whippersnappers called Prima Donna [...]
PD turned up the heat, alright. Especially when Preston started removing layers and then tore into Blondie’s “Rip Her To Shreds,” dedicated to Rodney himself. (We’re not sure a male vocal works on the tune, but it was a fun/fine attempt and the rest of the group -Aaron Minton on sax & keys?, David Field on drums?, Erik Arcane on guitar, ?”Lights Out” Levine on bass- was tight as could be) [...] ”

Cleo and Jackob Bellamy went to the show!!! Here’s their review !
“After my brother jakob just came back from his university for a short vacation and I came back from my europe trip we decided to visit my boyfriend jeffree in L.A. ’cause he was working there that time before going home to berkeley. and when we had lunch we thought about what to do on evening. and jeffy was on his phone on the facebook and he told us “guys prima donna has a show tonite @ key club” and yeah so went.
oooh my holy gosh, those guys rock that’s actually unbelievable! the music is awesome, their styles are awesome and the atmosphere and the mood is untold bloody marvellous when they play. the new songs are kick ass! and it’s also cool that they talk to their fans and folks after the show. but they were very busy that nite i think..so that’s why we were restrained. They whole spread Bellamy family loves that band. Our lil brother, us, sister, (mom, dad,..)
Big fat LUUUV from the Bellamy’s to Prima Donna oxoxoxo

Keep spreading the word about Prima Donna !!!
Here it is a great review!
“Prima Donna boys seem to have learnt the lesson: if you wanna rock, you gotta roll. They had been touring Europe for over a month and it didn’t matter if in front of them there were less than thirty people or a packed club: the band always kicked everybody’s ass.
Kevin, Aaron, Erik, David and Levine closed their European tour in the U.K, playin’ with the legendary pub rockers Eddie and the Hot Rods and having a show at the All Saints Art Center in London: actually, a church in the middle of fucking nowhere.
A half hundred crowd (most of them from France and Italy) and two great acts.
Prima Donna hit the stage first and they delivered what they do best: sleazy rock n’ roll in the vein of the New York Dolls. They played the same set-list they did in these Euro-days in the same exact way: rockin’ and rollin’.
The “Rumble” intro, “Soul Stripper”, “Some Kinda Nerve” and Generation X cover “King Rocker” (do the king kong, babies!)… The guys played our new favourites tunes “Feral Children” and “Puta Te Amo” and Kevin did his Iggy Pop tribute singing “Crimson Lust”/“Tv Eye” as always: shirtless (and, yes, the girls in the audience went crazy).
What can we say about Eddie and the Hot Rods? Well, they were huge in the late Seventies and this night they played all their hits just like back in the Top of the Pops days: “Teenage Depression”, “Do Anything You Wanna Do” and “Quit This Town”.
Aaron reached them on stage for playing saxophone on Sixties classics “Gloria” and “Wooly Bully”, but the real deal was the final part of the show with both bands jamming on the Easy Rider anthem “Born to be Wild”…
It was awesome seeing middle-aged English rockers playing and sweating together with their mates from the U.S (Prima Donna could be Hot Rod’s nephews), something like passing the baton in the name of rock n’ roll music and punk attitude.
They displayed they are wild youngblood for real, even if there was no need because we know we were all born to be wild: us, Eddie and the Hot Rods and Prima Donna. That’s the way we live, going to rock n’ roll shows, drinking beers and havin fun with Kevin, Aaron, Erik, David and Levine whenever and wherever they play.
But now it’s time to record a new album, com’on guys: let’s rock and see you soon.”
