Malcolm Morley Manband memory fail!

Hopefully someone can help. I’ve been asked about the poster below (yes, yes, I know the size of the turn-ups on my jeans is extraordinary… I don’t know what I was thinking either!). Where did the poster originate from? I can’t remember whether it came with an LP ~ Rhinos, Winos & Lunatics? But I don’t think so. I vaguely recall the shoot ~ a film set possibly. Anyone know?


  1. Hiya. Got a copy of the poster framed in my Frontroom/Recording Studio. I beleive the photo was taken on the Blazing Saddles set during the 1999 Party Tour. Will check up & let you know for sure. Can Ken remember?
    ps I’ve not forgotten that picture of you with Deke & the O Band chaps. Will bring a copy down in June.

  2. NIck, have you got the O Band pic as a digital file? If so, we could include it here on the website. You can send it to us by using the contact form.

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)


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.
