Great now-defunct two-piece from Arizona that played delta blues at its most primitive, rawest, and (in my own opinion, of course) best. Its members were percussionist Thermos Malling, who used all sorts of found materials as percussion instruments, and Bob Log (who has released two solo albums under the name Bob Log III), who played guitar and sang, often through telephone speakers and microphones affixed to the end of vacuum cleaner attachments, and was also famous for wearing a large helmet during shows. They have played and/or toured with the likes of Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, Beck, Ween, and Sonic Youth, and they've performed songs by Mississippi Fred McDowell, Sleepy John Estes, Muddy Waters, and various traditional folk/blues songs. If you haven't heard them, you really should.
