Malcolm Morley at The Betsey Trotter

I’ve been told that the Betsey has hosted gigs from the likes of Keane, The Magic Numbers, Editors, Guillemots – and more recently Jack Peñate and Kate Nash. Well now they’re going to add Malcolm Morley to that esteemed list!

The gig is confirmed for saturday 11th June – from 8pm to 11pm. Malcolm expects to perform ‘Love, the Mystery and the Flame’,’ Perfect’, ‘Vanilla Sky’, ‘Blown Away’, ‘Looking for You’, ‘Where the River Bends’and possibly ‘Candy Kane’ among other songs.

Apart from Blown Away, the new material is currently in the process of being recorded and will be available soon. Candy Kane and Perfect being the first – click here to hear them.

In addition to Malcolm, Max Muller will be making his debut appearance in the UK. Max is a folk/blues oriented singer and songwriter. In Malcolm’s own words, he is “quite a hot guitarist”.

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.

On the Road / On Air is a new box set that document’s Man’s BBC sessions between 1972 and 1983. There’s some great music here, including a BBC Radio 1 session that features Malc from 1974! Visit the Cherry Red website for more info.


Putting together this website has certainly been a 'learning curve' ~ but I think we're getting there. For a more interactive experience visit the Malcolm Morley Facebook page and the fledgling Twitter account (@bewaretheshadow). If all goes well, who knows, we may even consider a YouTube channel.
