Lying dormant and buried in a time capsule of unheard cassettes for 22 years laid Jimmy - Holsum, a discarded mishmash of rudimentary drum machine beats, simple synth bass lines and answering machine messages from a hazy and sometimes violent past. Jimmy, the band, never materialized to finish and release Holsum, and the album was destined to remain etched in the long term memories of the select few who heard it at the time.
On this 2012 reinterpretation, Wigdoor has taken samples of Holsum's source material and using the same simple themes has created a modern day reintroduction to the whimsical and often twisted psyche of Jimmy and of those that left the cryptic messages.
