LOG Ill ooooo

Nice'n'Sleazy. Glasgow. Tue 1 Jul

‘l’m a professional,’ cries Bob Log

III. ‘I live in a car'.

It's good to hear someone suffering for their art for a change and Bob Log III has every reason to: the get-up he performs in is nothing short of an endurance test. Dressed up to the nines in a blue nylon

jumpsuit encrusted with

rhinestones and his trademark pilot helmet (visor down), Log sings into an old telephone receiver giving his voice a tinny, antiquated edge. It may seem at times that Log doesn’t take his art too seriously, but proves himself to be a sincerely

good slide blues player.

Log's true identity remains a mystery to the general populous, but he is clearly a one man blues hurricane who everyone should get

to know and love. Armed with only

his guitar and slide for a tune and bass drum and cymbal attached to either foot to knock out a steady beat, he does what the White Stripes do with

similar force but half the man power.

‘Wag Your Tail like a Dog in Back of a Truck' is, by his definition, a self- explanatory call to the bedroom that, in actuality, is more like being thrown down a bumpy hill in a barrel. His signature theme, in which he suggests ladies stir his drink with their bosom ‘Boob Scotch‘ highlights a cocktail they sure don’t serve in Oloroso or St Judes, but really, really should.

He concludes the show, his jumpsuit soaked through with sweat and beer, with a lady from the audience perched on each knee, and still keeps the beat a trooper indeed. And we didn’t even get to tell you about him losing his hand in an accident and replacing it with a monkey paw. Well,

maybe next time. (Mark Robertson)
