The Malcolm Morley Sessions

IMG_2561

Thanks for all your positive comments on the Malcolm Morley Facebook page with regard the new recording project. ‘Project’ is very much the word for it. At the moment, it is a series of songs that are ‘sessions’ rather than a single cohesive ‘album’.

The luxury of having a small recording set up at home means that tracks can be recorded when the muse strikes. Some are partly improvised, whilst others are more considered in terms of their construction. Currently, a few tracks are in a state of ‘gestation’… being left to settle for a few days before being reevaluated and considered for release. One is ready for release now ~ which, oddly, is one of the more ‘spur of the moment’ things.

The favoured approach at the moment is to release these songs as ‘sessions’… one, two or three tracks at a time, depending on how they fit together.

Initially, they will be made available as downloads, simply because that’s the most cost effective way to do it. However, should two or more songs fit together, then they’ll be pressed in very limited one-shot editions on CD. Once they’re gone, no more will be pressed.

More details will be posted here, and on the Facebook page, in the coming weeks.

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
