Bob Log III:

You may need to check out the wikipedia article to full understand who / what Bob Log is:

Bob Log III is an American slide guitar one-man band. During performances, he plays old Silvertone archtop guitars, wears a full body human cannonball suit, and a pilot's helmet wired to a telephone receiver, which allows him to devote his hands and feet to guitar and drums. The spectacle has been described as a guitar dance party.

He tours over 150 shows a year in more than 30 countries. Bob Log's version of quick Delta blues is a continuation of the sound that Bob Log and Thermos pioneered in the duo Doo Rag. The major differences are: greater emphasis on guitar showmanship, fingerpicking, and one-man-band-style drumming with his feet. Based in TucsonArizona, and Melbourne, Australia, he has made tours of North America,EuropeJapan and AustraliaMexico, and Iceland.


Bob Log III is to the blues what cannibal Issei Sagawa is to cookery. A 32 year-old Arizonan one-man-band who invented the art of tit clapping (more about that later), Bob sings his songs through a telephone receiver glued inside a motorcycle helmet. With X-rated cities like "Big Ass Hard On" and "Wag Your Tail Like A Dog In The Back Of A Truck: his records are being rung by aheavy breathing pervert in the middle of the night andphone-raped by the blues.   - Bizarre 
Mr. Free and the Satellite Freak Out:
The carnivalesque brainfreeze that is Mr. Free and the Satellite Freakout is spasmodic, schizophrenic and somehow still grounded in songs you can’t shake. This band must been seen to be believed. Mr. Free, he is not just a singer- he’s a performer. Often with bizarre makeup, costumes, and drooling paint, this group doesn’t just play…they put on a show. Freely winding his way through the audience, toying with fans—getting in their faces, rubbing against them, sitting among them. He can be frightening, hilarious and confrontational, but never boring. It's a delicate balancing act between music and performance art. The performance would be enough in itself, but then there’s the music- dense, dark, whimsical and everything in between, MFSF! manages to create music that is both complex and hook-filled.
