eCYCM - 13th April Ashton United and beyond

eCYCM - 13th April Ashton United and beyondFollowing the success of the first ever virtual Malcolms last week, the team have been working hard to put not only another show on, but are lining up a further four, taking us right up to the play-off final!.

Tune in at 3pm by clicking here to participate in a fantastic line-up, including:

  • a rescreening of James Quinn’s classic short play ’At the End of the Day’ with John Henshaw, as filmed by FCUM TV at Malcolmses back in the day;
  • the return of everyone’s favourite mither poet Angry Bear;
  • a ’From the archive’ spot, featuring a CYCM turn from the Gigg Lane years. On Monday it’s the drumkit-destroying Japanese band My Way My Love’s moment of Malcolmses stardom;
  • and music recorded specially for us from Mark Millward and from Quiet Loner http://www.quietloner.com/.

    Mark Millward (whom we just had to invite when we saw that he describes himself as ’Putting the dour in troubadour’), and from singer-songwriter Matt Hill aka Quiet Loner. Matt’s Web site says: ’An accomplished singer songwriter in the americana folk tradition, Matt Hill is a man whose songs tell of loves lost and won, and speak of history and community. In 2015 he was one of the five musicians who founded ’We Shall Overcome’, an anti-austerity movement that aims to show support and solidarity with those in local communities hit by cuts, poverty and homelessness’.

    It’s going to be a good long Malcolmses this one - why not see if you can get your mates together on Houseparty, Zoom or whatever and watch it ’together’? As you know, we’re aiming to provide a bit of a focal point for that nice idea of folk donating what they would have spent on a matchday.

    Entry to the new look Malcolmses is free but we will be encouraging people to click on the club donations button as well as we hope to enjoy watching something together even if we can’t actually be together.

    Bring on United...
