About Me

My photo
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.

2013 digital singles - three so far

We have this new digital single out. Its called "the postman always rings twice".

This is what our press release says...
-->
The Postman Always Rings Twice is the third digital single from Dave Graney in 2013.
A song more than a little inspired by the famous first novel by James M Cain (1934) and the (1946) film of the same name starring Lana Turner and John Garfield.
Dave Graney made a demo version of this song in 1987, as he embarked on a post Moodists career .(The Moodists being the first band for Graney and his partner Clare Moore) .
The song was eventually recorded in 1998 as “between times” for the Dave Graney Show cd. Dave Graney had always thought it best to hide his stash of obsessions and that to call the song after the book and the film would be too distracting for people to experience the song itself. Now he’s restoring it. This is kind of a  a “directors cut”.
Dave Graney plays acoustic and electric guitar, along with Stuart Perera from their band , the mistLY. Clare Moore sings and plays keys, percussion  and bass xylophone.

Dave Graney has always been influenced by hard boiled crime literature and street language.
The Postman Always Rings Twice is an expression of a long ride on those deep swells."

Here is a link to it on Soundcloud



its at itunes

and Bandcamp

Last month we put out "I'm a Commander



This is what we said about that;
I’m a Commander (2013 remake) is the second single in a series of individual digital releases planned  by dave graney for 2013.

This is a remake of a  song that featured on our 1998 album “the dave graney show”. Here it is recast in acoustic 12 string guitars strummed by dave graney against a brave and mad rush of vibes and bass xylophone (wooden blocks/keys like a marimba) played by longtime collaborator clare moore.


the song was inspired by a dream I had where the artist- the musician was a great and powerful person – like say Napoleon and he was drilling his forces and about to fight a great battle. He tells the record company to get in line and the radio stations that “they are now in uniform- enjoy yourself while you can!”

I'm a commander is at bandcamp too

and also itunes

we started in February with "I'm not the guy i tried to be"




This is how we pitched it...
-->
I’m not the guy I tried to be (2013 remake) is the first single in a series of individual digital releases planned  by dave graney for 2013.

This is a remake of a  song that closed the 2012 album “you’ve been in my mind” by dave graney and the mistLY. Here it is recast in acoustic 6 and 12 string guitars strummed by dave graney against a sweet rush of vibes and bass xylophone (wooden blocks/keys like a marimba) played by longtime collaborator clare moore.


the song was inspired by something Willie Nelson said at a  show once. The groove is loping JJ Cale. I like to have another shot at some songs, just to see how it flies with different fins on…The radio was full of adult country pop when I was a kid. Add this one to the pile.”

FEARFUL WIGGINGS

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
