- 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.

Slow starting I know.Had a delightful few , giddy, suspended weeks after the mad rush to jump from a cliff that comes over you late December. Doing nothing much.Freeballing.
Now things have gathered apace.
Clare Moore is dangerously close to finishing off the DAMES album. Sounds great. Ten songs, five of them sung by Clare , three by Kaye Louise Patterson and two Kaye instrumentals.
Harry Howard and the NDE's album "near death experience" is also set for March 1st release on Spooky records. Thats harry on guitar and songs, Edwina Preston on organ, me on bass and Clare Moore on drums.
As to dave graney and the mistLY , we have been working on the material and head into a studio next week to put down a dozen songs. Some have been demoed for a long time. Others have been in our live set for the last six months.

Its all sounding great. I'm playing electric 12 string and have been working on my amp and sound in a quite maniacally obsessed way for the last few months. It is a hot rod. The sound is singing. Going to be a guitar pop album. bass, drums, guitar and vocals. Sounds mad I know!
Theres also a track I've recorded myself which may turn up called king of the dudes. Its a freaky groove.

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
