Jim Campilongo - Heaven is Creepy

What's Hot

I am embarrased to say I have only just come across Jim Campilongo. What a player, a Tele through a Princeton is all he needs.

Fast forward to 8m 20s in the vid below for “Heaven is Creepy”.

i just bought and downloaded his 2006 album “Heaven is Creepy” on the back of this and his tone is even better on the record and it has what sounds like a double bass. Very good.

    My favourite album of his! Great tunes and a real nice recording too.
    If you like that then also check out Julian Lage's Arclight, a similar vibe but mellower.

     Mr Campilongo is also my answer to almost everything on here so you haven’t been reading enough of my posts. 

    He does use the odd pedal although aside from a couple of fuzz tracks it’s usually an overdrive for when he can’t turn the amp up enough. I really like the Little Willies albums ( particularly the first one) which puts his playing in more of a song based context ( like the tone swells on Diesel Smoke). I even just like watching interviews with him - in his noisey New York apartment with hundreds of albums, he’s a cool dude. 
    I feel the warm, healing, liquid presence of God’s genuine cold-filtered grace.

    I've got "Orange" it's got some terrific dentist drill telecaster guitar work on it.

    I actually think that the drummer is from around 1971 and superimposed on the stage...............

    He's a great player but I always think of him as a slightly low rent unwashed Richard Gere with an out there jazz vibe and a twangery metallic Telecaster sound borrowed from the brilliant but brittle Roy Buchanan .
     It's the tele sound that a Trussart makes in my head (but not real life )
