DAVE GRANEY - CLARE MOORE - LURID YELLOW MIST
'ROCK'N ROLL IS WHERE I HIDE' ALBUM TOUR
Dave Graney and the Lurid Yellow Mist live and work out of Melbourne Australia. Dave Graney and drummer Clare Moore played with the Moodists from 1978 to 1986. They then played with the White Buffaloes/Coral Snakes from 1987-1997.
“Rock’n Roll Is Where I Hide” is a collection of electric rock’n’roll re-recordings of a dozen Graney classics. Dave describes it as “our 3rd debut album”.
"I mean your debut album is the one where the band knows the material inside out and just lays it down in the studio without even thinking. They know it so well.
The songs on this record are songs that we’ve been playing, on and off, for a very long time. Sometimes, we went for a decade without touching them. Then we came back to them from a different direction. By ‘we”, I mean myself and Clare Moore who are the only ones to play on any of the original recordings. Stu Thomas has played bass with us since 2004. Stuart Perera has played guitar with us since 1998 , when he joined us as a teenager. Mark Fitzgibbon is a jazz powerhouse who we first played with in London many years ago in the Moodists. They mostly learned the songs at rehearsal from me going over the arrangements on a guitar. Years ago. Then we kept playing them into different shapes. For some, we might have listened to the original recordings. Mostly, we wanted to play them a bit differently and sometimes they just grew to be different.”
“To mix the record we asked Victor Van Vugt (PJ Harvey, Beth Orton, Augie March) in New York City, who had left Australia with the Moodists many years ago and also produced our 1995 cd, ‘The Soft’n’Sexy Sound’ “ - Dave Graney.
“Rock’n Roll Is Where I Hide” will be available from your favorite music vendor on Friday April 15th, 2011 through Liberation Music.
As well as the album Dave Graney is also about to publish his memoirs in book form: '1001 Australian Nights' has the legendary rock showman taking us on a journey about growing up, finding your voice and hitting the right pitch. In August 1977, Dave sets off on a road-trip from small-town Australia, a young man fired up by punk rock, outside of life and looking for a way in. When he loses the map Graney finds his groove, then twists and turns his way through three decades as a working artist. This is no standard rock'n'roll trip; it's Graney up close, out there and on his game. Published by Affirm Press & available from your favorite book vendors Monday April 4th.

- WORKSHY - 2017 memoir out on Affirm Press. Let's get Tight - 2017 CD with Clare Moore. Moodists - Coral Snakes - mistLY. I don’t know what I am and don’t want to know any more than I already know. I aspire, in my music , to 40s B Movie (voice and presence) and wish I could play guitar like Charlie Christian or Grant Green -but not in this lifetime, I know.
2014 solo album from Dave Graney. *****"If I've learnt anything in my years of writing about music it's that if you are going to do anything of worth in this tough game, you better have your own thing. Today's generic is easily replaced by tomorrow's. And yet you need to be flexible, to follow wherever the songs demand. In the case of this, only the second credited as a solo album among 30 or so Graney releases, it's a curious yet welcoming lane he walks you down, with acoustic guitars, not much percussion, vibes, smooth sounds. At the end of it you feel like you've awoken from a strange yet pleasant summer's dream. As shot by Luis Bunuel. It ranges from off-kilter reveries (A Woman Skinnies Up a Man, The Old Docklands Wheel) through to the softly seductive (How Can You Get Out of London) and the downright arch (Look Into My Shades, Everything Is Great In The Beginning.) This is music that is neither folk, nor blues, nor country, but it's all Graney, somewhere out to the left field beyond Lee Hazlewood's raised eyebrow. It's astringent on the tongue but sweetens in the telling." Noel Mengel Brisbane Courier Mail
