BLACK DiAMOND HEAViES - ALiVE AS FUCK!
I'm a drummer. I don't give a damn about drummers. I almost never hear a drummer that doesn't disappoint in some way. I have neverever been disappointed by Mr. Campbell. His taste and style is always fresh, smart, muscular, nimble, Swazyesque and HARD driving while supplying backup and brakes to keyist Leg. The right Rev.James Leg is a traveling man from Port Arthur Tejas where his daddy was a preacher or something. His voice,Waitsian and salacious. His countenance part-Dionysian barker, part-1987 Metarie Louisiana afternoon Swaggert. His hands work the black and whites like a punk rock Barry White. He's got a hot wet spirit in him and it's got to come out. It's a sonic revival. Black Diamond Heavies conjure healing power. Step in to it. Ain't it good to ya! Like the godforsaken overdue redemption of the long haunted spirit of rock, soul, and blues.
