Jack Bentley is Mister Dodo Bones!

Remember The Jack Bentley Blues Band who played at the Richard Treece memorial gig? Well Jack Bentley has a new release, this time around as Mister Dodo Bones.

Accompanied by the One-Eyed Jacks, this is well worth checking out, especially, in the immortal words of Deke Leonard, if you enjoy “Stonkin’ quirky blues played with terrifying conviction”.

Richard was part of the Jack Bentley Blues Band before upping sticks and coming down to London and eventually joining Help Yourself. Jack Bentley and his merry band of bandoliers were kind enough to come down to Walthamstow for Richard’s memorial gig, helping turn the occasion into something special.

RICHARD TREECE’S MEMORIAL GIG

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.

DEKE LEONARD RIP

"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."

SOCIAL MEDIA?

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
