Bob Log III: School Bus

Regarding Bob Log III and his incredibly eccentric, way-way out there debut, School Bus (Possum/Epitaph 80323-2; 35:22)…is this a joke? Is this guy for real? And I thought labelmates Hasil Adkins and Elmo Williams were weird. A one-man band who plays guitar, bass drum and drum machine and performs in a protective helmet, he has no regard for tonality, intonation or time. His playing is primitive yet frighteningly intense on psycho country-blues originals like “Big Ass Hard On,” “All The Rockets Go Bang” and “Land Of A Thousand Swirling Asses.” Be afraid. Be very afraid of Bob Log III.
