Gig Review: Bob Log III/The Bitter Pills, The Rialto, Wednesday 10th March 2019

A newish venue for gigs as it’s mainly used a theatre space The Rialto is a pain to find the first time you go there. Tonight’s support is The Bitter Pills. A duo with a blues-rock sound with the heaviness of stoner rock thrown into the mix for good measure. A less poppy Royal Blood if you will. I saw them a year ago and they’ve improved since. Ones to watch.

Bob Log III, not a stranger to Brighton but is strange in a good way. Bedecked in a jumpsuit with a sequinned cape and an aviator helmet on to hide his identity you wonder what’s he hiding? Musically there are no secrets as this one-man blues band lets rip. Words and songs issue forth from his hidden mouth of a bawdy nature. ‘I want your shit on my leg‘ is the title of one song which sounds like the title of a specialist skin mag rather than a ditty. Audience participation is sought and rewarded. Toast was made, mid-song selfies took, Buck’s Fizz drunk from rubber duckies and balloons popped. We got a show and then some. You must see him live.

Bob Log III a stranger who always welcome in this city. Thanks to Stay Sick for bringing Bob back to Brighton. Same time next year?
