Barry ‘The Fish’ Melton… plus The Green Ray!


On Friday 22nd September – the week before Malc’s gig on Saturday 30th – The Green Ray will be supporting Barry Melton at The Stag’s Head in Hoxton (London N1 5RA).

With a fantastic new Green Ray album out, this should be a memorable night. It’ll also be a chance to buy a CD of the album!

Barry ‘The Fish’ Melton, who is headlining, is of course the co-founder and original lead guitarist of the legendary Country Joe and The Fish. Barry will be playing the gig as a duo with French singer Stephane Missri. They also have an album out, entitled ‘Revolution Down The Road’.

For those that couldn't make it to the memorial gig for Richard Treece – and indeed, for those that wish to re-live what was a tremendous occasion – some soundfiles have been uploaded of the (fantastic) performances of Son of Man, The Jack Bentley Blues Band and The Green Ray.


"We have lost somebody who was the real deal. A man with the true Bardic gift. He was funny, with a savage wit which he practiced freely. He was great company and a fine musician too – even if he would not admit it. Deke supported and encouraged my early life in the music world, pressed the other lads to get me into Man, and stood in for me in the Help when I was sick with depression. Richard Treece's memorial gig in Walthamstow was the last time I saw the old devil and we talked about this and that... and cricket, which we both love. Deke's passing is a sad loss to the world at large – and heaven knows we need every spark we can get these days."

Putting together this website has been a (wait for it, cliché is coming) 'learning curve' - but I think we're getting there slowly. Also being tackled are the various social media 'channels'. So far, there's a Malcolm Morley Facebook page and a fledgling Twitter account (@bewaretheshadow), to be followed soon by an Instagram account. More news on the latter to follow. And if all goes well, who knows, maybe even a YouTube channel. Steady! Please help support all this by following, friending etc. Thanks... Malc
