Bob Log III
So when you see a man in a jumpsuit and full-face helmet rigged up with a telephone receiver come barreling down the honky-tonk stairs in a lifeboat while beating away on a hollow-body guitar, don’t get out of the way. Jump right in there with him. And as long as you live, you’ll never forget what he taught you.Taipei - Times December 2015
A man in a human cannonball suit soon appeared from a side door, his head completely obscured by a tinted black helmet, its front welded into a telephone which seemed to wirelessly amplify his voice to the audience. Bob Log III launched into a mind-blowing set, finger-picking his beaten-up black guitar for a sound of steel string blues and heavy rock n’ roll. The sound was reminiscent of Jon Spencer Blues Explosion if it had to be categorised, but his music would be better described as Jerry Lee Lewis crossed with a little of Tom Waits’ heavy industrial sounds. - yorkpress.co.uk 2012
His guitar growls like a rabies-infested mutt, straight from the backyard of an Alabama whorehouse. The expletives he squawks are absolutely unintelligible, at least while the groan of his six stringed demon viciously dominates the aural realm. When the blanket of perfectly distorted guitar ends, which always coincides with a great victory stance, Mr. Log displays his propensity for what is only describable as ‘not giving a fuck’, which in his case takes the form of the perfect stage presence. - beatsperminute.com 2012
Canada’s longest running horror rock band, Forbidden Dimension started out in 1988. It was initially conceived as a one- man/one-off recording project, the result being a 7" EP "Into the Forbidden Dimension". 29 years later, Jackson Phibes and his cronies are still stranded in the Forbidden Dimension with no escape in sight. - https://forbiddendimension.bandcamp.com/
K.V. RAUCOUS is a one man band who plays primitive rock n' roll. Drum beats are played with the feet at the same time as the guitar and singing. All tracks are recorded and produced by K.V. Raucous in the most direct 'live" no-nonsense way possible.
K.V. Raucous is also an active artist/oil painter. - https://kvraucous.bandcamp.com/
