Thee Midnight Creep / Press

“Amid shaky reverberations, melancholy crooning and eerie whistles, Bill Campbell, or Thee Midnight Creep, delivers his signature gothically-inflected gospel on his latest release. I Lie Like a Dog at Your Feet is an album that can stand up to the works of the great shiver-inducing wordsmiths; Campbell’s brand of woozy folk is as macabre as any Edgar Allan Poe creation. Minimalist auto-harp accompaniment allows his stirring vocals, suggestive of a soul tormented, to take listeners hostage in a world of brocade, gnarled trees and perpetual dusk. The aptly named opener “Codeine” pairs heady instrumentation with woebegone lyrics that sound like they were uttered in a long empty hallway. The song, and the album, act as an auditory narcotic – hypnotic, calming and, ultimately, hard to let go. But don’t take our word for it – Thee Midnight Creep will be performing live on KEXP at 8 p.m. on February 18. - Kate Shepherd”

“Have you heard of or seen this guy? Bill Campbell is Thee Midnight Creep, and underneath the patina of eerie/gothic music that his image belies, are well crafted, thoughtful lyrics and a deep nostalgic croon for a voice. Nick Cave meets Castanets- that's Thee Midnight Creep. Usually, here on The Deli, we post about an upcoming event, or an album about to be released, but damn it, I can't find any "news" item to post for this fellow other than I think he is magnificent and you should listen to him on his myspace, or see him live, or buy his album (does he have an album out?)! If you have more information on this one-man-band, please comment. His myspace info, which serves as an example of his ambiguousness, is below: Bio: southern ex-patriot Members: a Martin, a Guild and an Auto-harp Influences: Sounds Like: hollerin' into a well”
