Sean Tyla

Very sad to hear about the loss of my old friend Sean Tyla. Although I have not seen him for years now, I’d like to pay tribute to him and some great memories of our times together at Headley Grange when he offered his services as an additional member of Help Yourself. 

During those heady LSD-fuelled days, Sean’s hilarious madcap antics were always an absolute tonic. He was a fine songwriter and a terrific performer. In those days he would galvanise the rest of us when he came charging on stage, sometimes sliding onto one knee with enthusiastic shouts and whoops! 

Artistically, he was very supportive of me at a time when my own performing confidence was almost non-existent. I first met him in the office of Andrew Lauder at United Artists in Mortimer Street, London and I remember feeling an affinity immediately. He was someone I felt at ease with straight away. We talked for some time and I guess it was from that day our musical association began. 

Sean, I would not have missed it all for the world. 

He was an unforgettable man. My condolences to all who loved him.

CONTACT PROBLEMS!

Sadly, the old form that was on this website was proving to be rather problematic. We became aware that quite a few messages were being sent that weren't being received ~ so we've resorted to using a simple email address for the time being. Many apologies if you sent me a message and I didn't reply. I urge you to try again! Send your email to: hello(at)malcolm-morley.co.uk

HALF MOON PUTNEY

Malcolm has announced a special gig at the Half Moon in Putney on Sunday 16th February, 2020. This should be a fantastic night for all fans of Malcolm, Help Yourself, Man and associated bands. People are flying from all over for this one, so please don’t delay in getting tickets!

SOCIAL MEDIA?

Putting together this website has certainly been a 'learning curve' ~ but I think we're getting there. Also, there's now a Malcolm Morley Facebook page and a fledgling Twitter account (@bewaretheshadow). And if all goes well, who knows, maybe even a YouTube channel.
