Just Like Jim

Vinyl LP
Ilam Press Records in partnership with Christchurch Art Gallery Te Puna o Waiwhetu present Greg Malcolm’s new solo album Just Like Jim

One of Aotearoa’s most articulate experimental guitarists, this new album sees Greg Malcolm committing himself to a 1950s Hofner archtop guitar he inherited from his late grandfather, Jim Spence. In a stripped-back sonic setting Greg fuses his long-running interests in traditional rembetika and klezmer music with memories of his grandfather’s interests in ‘ham’ radio, while taking the restored guitar to its outer limits.

Recorded live by Jeff Henderson at the Audio Foundation, this 12-inch vinyl release comes packaged in a bespoke hand screen-printed cover with large format booklet containing liner notes by Bruce Russell and Greg Malcolm. Designed by Luke Wood and produced by Ilam Press Records in a limited edition of 150 (numbered) copies.
