New Zealand's guitarist Greg Malcolm, who was working in a children's musical theatre duo with his partner Jenny Ward, released Trust Only This Face (1995), which contained the controversial The Ballad of Peter Plumley-Walker, that got him in trouble. It took him five years to recover from that experience and release What Is It Keith? (2000), featuring tuba, sax, violin, bass and drums.

He also formed Surfing USSR with bassist Marc Howe and drummer Matt Gibb: Surferdelic (2000) set klezmer melodies to surf music.

Homesick For Nowhere (2002) delivered brief solo-guitar versions of songs from all over the world and from all sorts of genres and across the ages. Swimming In It (K-RAA-K3, 2005) was an another eclectic collection of covers (from Vietnamese folk music to free jazz) but the five songs were longer and manifested a stronger personality, capable of wedding John Fahey's Indian-Appalachian fusion folk and the dominating school of droning free-form psychedelia.

International Domestic (Corpus Hermeticum, 2003) was a collaboration with Tetuzi Akiyama, Toshimaru Nakamura, and Bruce Russell.

Hung (Celebrate Psi Phenomenon, 2005) was an experiment in simultaneously playing multiple guitars.

Six Strings (2007) was a collaboration with Tetuzi Akiyama.
