Following the tragic death from cancer of our dear friend comrade, and colleague, Alistair, the Malkies are no longer playing - we may be back in the future but it's hard to imagine at this time. Phil Snell

The new album Suited And Booted has been getting some more than decent reviews since it came out in July 08. Here's a few extracts from what the critics have had to say....
"Fronted by Alistair Hulett's characterful Glasgow streetwise vocals, The Malkies patrol a territory where folk-rock borders country music and Pete Seeger and Woody Guthrie songs sit easily alongside traditional ballads and Hulett's own urban truths." - The Herald
"The new four-piece has served its time on the folk and roots scene and it shows, in an unpretentious confidence and a willingness to add their own melodic flourishes to Hulett's perfectly formed vignettes." - RocknReel
"It's an invigorating mix all right, the mood and delivery may be (roughly) good-time, but it's done with buckets of taste and real style. There's loads of delectable inner detail in the arrangements, and the musicians are having a ball too; there's an easygoing, if slightly-rough-and-tumble backroom feel to the music-making that flatters to deceive by belying the expertise of the participants, but it's so darned appealing!" Net Rhythms
