Bob Log III New Album, Tour

 

The man’s shit is
perfect. Check the video for proof.

Arizona’s
mighty Bob Log III, erstwhile frontman of the late, great Doo Rag gonzo blooze
duo (ask me sometime about their 
legendary tour of swap meets), he of the miked motorcycle helmet, slide
guitar glissandos, kickdrum finesse and boob-slapping song choruses, has a new
album on the Birdman label. Sensitively titled My Shit Is Perfect, it is indeed perfect, a platter that showcases,
in the words of hi handlers, “finger picked lightning, sliding up and down,
stopping when it wants to, then starting again when it feels like it, all in a
way that makes people move uncontrollably, smile and reel.”

 

Log’s also got a tour kicking off next month, one that will
take him up an down the west coast, across the Midwest
to the east, and then back again. Need we say do not miss this human dynamo and
his R-rated brand of rock ‘n’ roll? Full tourdates below; more details at www.boblog111.com.

 

Meanwhie, we’ll leave it to Tom Waits to sum up the magic
and mystery that is Bob Log III:

 

“And then there’s this guy
named Bob Log, you ever heard of him? He’s this little kid – nobody even knows
how old he is – wears a motorcycle helmet and he has a microphone inside of it
and he puts the glass over the front so you can’t see his face, and plays slide
guitar. It’s just the loudest strangest stuff you’ve ever heard. You don’t
understand one word he’s saying. I like people who glue macaroni on to a piece
of cardboard and paint it gold. That’s what I aspire to basically.”
