BOB LOG III – My Shit is Perfect (birdman) – Heralded “one man band slide guitar party”, Bob Log III, continues looking like a sleazy Evil Kinevil, sports his telephone/helmet contraption while performing with guitar in “paw”and cymbals on floor. The album cover is an open stage that comes with stickers so that you can create your own scene. This is Bob Log III’s first album in over 5 years; thirteen upbeat and conceited toe-tapping blues tracks. Gimmicks and antics aside, he is always a blast performing live, come witness the Scotch and boob loving DOO RAG veteran, along side Willem Maker and El Paso Hot Button at Club Dada on May 29th. MP3 of “BUMP POW!”
