Call Me Malcolm are a five piece ska/punk band from London, blending hard punk, a crunchy ska sound and three part harmonies. Originally inspired by the US third wave leaders of the late 90s such as Less Than Jake and Goldfinger, the band quickly evolved a harder, more sardonic, Random Hand style edge.
April 2018, Malcolm released I Was Broken When You Got Here, an album telling the story of the band’s struggles with mental health, to universally effusive praise. Recorded with Oz Craggs at Hidden Track Studios (The Gallows, Mallory Knox, Feed The Rhino), the release represents the band’s layered, intricate songwriting.
