Stinky Jim Profile

Stinky Jim explained to the NZ Herald in December 1996, “In Germany a lot of radio people and journalists would turn up who really loved the album, because we’re a bit of an enigma, coming from New Zealand, having recorded in New York and been released on a German label.”

Jim was talking about Unitone HiFi – his successful collaboration with Joost Langeveld. Unitone had just pulled off the then seemingly impossible – they had released three albums on a hot European indie label and, to add another layer to the feat, they were records created by pre-internet era transglobal collaboration between the two members. In other words, by mail, phone and fax machine.

Trivia:

The Tranquillity Bass radio show was born out a 95bFM special where Stinky Jim and Eddie Chambers tried to play the bassiest records they could find.

A 1999 Stinky Jim interview with Gary Steel in the NZ Listener, on DJ culture, was famously controversial. "You can't just buy a record bag and 100 records and become a DJ" he opined.

Stinky says, "I’m most happy when I’m making tunes. Sometimes you simply have to, there is no choice involved."
