1994  bob asks susie (distant nice of Django) and tanktop (George Patton s bastard son) to record "Didn t Mean to Hurt Ye"  which appears on their 1st maxi single (fifi rec) this led Max Dax to book their very first live gig in HH's    Grosse Freiheit......
1995  Thomas Heidorn (1 million $ rec) releases  the maxi single "La Rabia" and  they sign with  Tim Warren s  Crypt  label  (he's responsible  folks!)  the band sets up studio and get to work    do Louisiana tour  Zwolle and New Orleans where they play the Mermaid lounge to 15 or so very drunk people   bob gets his first and only fan mail from New Orleans which his wife throws away before he can read   causing bob to promptly file for divorce....
1996   lp "Bad with Wimen"  released  along with the single "Mexico Americano"
(crypt)   the band plays pop com with El Vez  and the Oblivians all very swell people   bob and the deficits do several shows with the Oblivians     later on they meet up with  Nikki Sudden   record  album "Nikki and the Big Deficits" (long out of print) and do a tour cut short when nikki pours a bottle of fine merlot on bob s amp somewhere in lovely Bayern.   in the winter bob and co appear in BBC film "On the Road with John Peel" where mr Peel helps them sing merle haggard s  Lonesome Fugitive.   in the HH grunspan  bob personally gives Ike Turner a painting  and after shaking hands with the strat master himself  bob finds  his guitar playing vastly improved.    bob gets his D I V O R C E  and couldn t be happier..
1997  2nd crypt release  lp  "Bush Hog'n Man"  hits the charts   the boys and girl do their 3rd euro tour  with Tom and Eric  of the mighty Bantam Rooster  taking in the fine april landscape of france  they also visit monti carlo where susie secretly doubles the tour money
in the fall they are off to london  to do a couple of gigs and  a  J Peel session    Franziska Jacob s  releases  her film "Durchgebraten" giving the band a bit of soundtrack "work"......
1998  start recording for the 3rd Crypt  lp  which never happens     Tim had to flee the country as he was found to be a polygamist   susie has to check in to hospital for guitar arm fatigue  but recovers just in time to drive over to london for  a live BBC 1 radio show with Andy Kershaw    on the return drive  car is broken into in venlo holland  but only duty free cigs and all the dirty underwear were stolen   in dec bob and band receive the greatest xmas gift ever by being allowed to open for god himself  Mr Link Wray  bob again shook another hand to vastly improve his strumming abilities    Mr Wray told them "you guys are great" like he does to all his opening acts    he s a nice god!  the band also released  a fine country number on the berlin comp  "Crazy Mongo Party"  and the single "No Soy Facil" on the french Nest of Vipers......
1999  relatively a quiet year  with a few 3 and 4 day tours and playing too often in HH    the band spent  a great deal of time searching for a  usa label  just missing a deal with Fat Possum and finally signing  with  Man s Ruin  which would prove to be extremely unfruitful   in the end after a lot of waiting in the dark: NO record.  (don t ever deal with an artist!) but it s the thought that counts.....  bob also had to fly to chicago to personally defend the band in a brand name infringement trial  against the allied corp which owns the trademark  BushHog  the jury was hung.......don t mess with an alabama boy!!!!!
2000  waiting in vain on man s ruin...but our said band was very busy in the studio having just upgraded to 8 track!  but no records and no tours  a few gigs here and there  bob doing a few side projects like recording for other people and playing in his girlfriend s band The Watzloves   for all of dec  bob  silky and beatman  banded together to do the Le Cirque Electrique  with  The Dead Bros  Bob Log III   Steve Westfield  Guitar Fucker  Whitman and many other greats...including Moris the seal.....
