BOB LOG III
Bob Log III is a One Man Band Slide Guitar Party.
Bob Log III is an American, Slide Guitar, One Man Band. During performances, he plays old Silvertone Archtop guitars, wears a full body cannonball man suit, and a helmet wired to a telephone which allows him to devote his hands and feet to guitar and drums. The spectacle has been described as a guitar dance party, full of sweaty smiles, jumps and kicks. Touring over 150 shows a year in more than 30 countries, Log and his guitar never, ever quit. Bob Log's version of quick Delta blues is a continuation the sound that Bob Log and Thermos pioneered in the duo, Doo Rag. The major differences are: greater emphasis on guitar showmanship, and drumming -one man band style-with his feet. It sounds like three drummers, two guitar players, and one sort of singer. Based in Tucson, Arizona, and Melbourne, Australia, he has made frequent tours of North America, Europe, Japan and Australia, Mexico, and Iceland.
His latest release, MY SHIT IS PERFECT, begins the onset of another slew of adventures. Geography be damned, Bob Log III intends to take these songs and his unique slide guitar party to the good people of the world. There is no town too remote, there never has been.
From deep within the briny, churning primordial sea, came forth the three headed octo-beast known only as “Porky”. An era of darkness enveloped the world, as this beast rose from the waves and beat it’s breast mercilessly with it’s own tentacles. Chunks of fire rained from the sky; a sky that appeared to tear open and burn, the way blood gushes from a body when its being torn apart and devoured by wolves. This was a time beyond hell, beyond madness. Then, after all that was done, the Pork Torta came along and made people dance. They even wore purple shirts that said “DANCE”, in case those people forgot what they were doing. They like Mexican food. They have to, they live in Tucson! Buy any of they’re albums and you’ll see, it tastes good. Hobo scientists say the best way to absorb the Torta is with your body, hold the speakers tight to your abdomen, turn it up very loud and rotate speaker positions over various organs. Don’t forget to dance!!
Strange Vine's earthy, energetic music is a fusion of blues, psychedelic, and traditional American rock. It's a sound born of California's Sierra Nevada Mountains, from two men who were raised there. Ian Blesse plays drums and Rhodes piano (simultaneously), while Toby Cordova fleshes out the songs with a rotating arsenal of guitars (including one made from a cigar box). Both contribute vocals toward a rich, layered sound that's greater than the sum of its parts. In just a year's time, Strange Vine has already shared the stage with acts like The Black Keys, Cage The Elephant, Band Of Skulls, B.B. King, The Growlers, White Denim, Robin Trower, The Greenhornes, Pokey LaFarge and JEFF The Brotherhood.
