Just wondering if you have any tour dates set up for the new year, and
if so, are any of them going to be in Philadelphia?
Egads, I sure hope so. I hear your live show is really a sight to be seen.
egads you said egads to me!

I will be there someday. you won the egads prize!
I will bring it
rock a lot
I am good with the secret words. luck o'zee irish.

wait for your show (whenever that may be.)

on? my friend robert wouldn't let me rest until I got started on it. I
think it's fresh.

I discovered Mr. Log when someone in the Yahoo SubGenius group posted his video for Clap Your Tits - though they didn't provide any information; they just thought it was a funny video. And it is. But I had to do some detective work. It didn't take long before I found myself at the website of Fat Possum records, (http://www.fatpossum.com/artists/boblog.html)and I downloaded some of the tracks they had available.
A man with a helmet who plays drums, slide guitar, and sings (essentially, making him a one man band) is a sight to be seen. And it's not just some cheap gimmick - the guy is AMAZING. The songs are catchy, blues punk gems.

There's a few other links on the Fat Possum site that are well worth looking at.

Sheffield Arena, 9th September 2003
My first dabblings in live music at the tender age of fourteen. It was OK, I suppose.
Nottingham Royal Concert Hall, 21st May 2004
Now this was much better, a slice of genius from the cake of comedy.
Franz Ferdinand [The Kills, Bob Log III]
Bradford St George's Hall, 21st October 2004
Bob Log was a revelation - of the samey, wierd, brilliant kind. The Kills were fairly shite though. But Franz Ferdinand were effortlessly ace.
R.E.M. [Now It's Overhead]
Sheffield Arena, 21st February 2005
This was the one wot got cancelled. Now It's Overhead were right up my street, and though it was a shame that Mike Mills was too ill for this to be a full gig, we got an extra four songs and a whole other gig out of it. And those four songs, they were good.
Loudon Wainwright III [Edwina Hayes]
Gateshead Sage, 23rd April 2005
Popped up north with the folks to see the man they call Gordondon, and it was, by all accounts, a very good gig. …
