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.

Jake Laundry is one of your desensitized Palo Alto Android Transplant types. As a boy, Jake (Jakeman, Jakester) once played Mexican folk guitar with Steve Jobs' son, Reed, at a Los Gatos Private School Xmas Recital. His love for Mexican folk music and holidays was prolly cemented then. The following year Jeff Dean gave him and his mother a personal tour/insiders' look at Google's HQ in Mountain View. This made a lasting impression on Jake about where computer corporations were taking the future; he wondered what this portended for Mexican folk music... As a teen, Jake worked for Dave Eggers' celebrity nonprofit industrial complex and caught a vision of a better future. Or maybe it was just that he heard about that book "Brave New World"...? "Brazil" maybe? In any case, we're pretty sure he took this vision with him to Whit(e)man College, where he received a degree in (ancient) theatre and studied social sciences and music. He also had sex with a few people. This much we know.

Unfathomably extensive records of GPS data streaking across Clouds indicate JL (a.k.a "gassyxboxplayer420") has since preoccupied his time touring the USA and beyond playing music with a number of Seattle artists (Chris Staples, Fauna Shade, Hibou, Sloucher, Ruler, Accident), and driving an Uber cab... Did we say Uber? We meant Jake Laundry has been trying to prove himself to the world by copywriting a politically angsty pop music album. Did we say politically angsty? POP MU$IC? We meant Jake Laundry seeks to prove himself to the idea of his self on social media. Wat? Or was it "1984"? Or "Looper"? WE MEANT Jake Laundry is trying, hopefully, to stop more nuclear explosions and climate change, and his music is a desperate conceit for his millennial peers, and/or anyone else so inclined, to help him.
