About Me

My photo
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.

then a party deep in the hills!

Jesus! Cold and wet, could see your breath. Headed off to do a  gig in a restaurant in the Hills at about 9pm. The bar had been open since 4pm... We expected a harsh time of it! I dressed appropriately. I wuz gonna die in all kindsa patterns and with red strides an' white shoes too

Beats playing to bearded dopes who have just heard Johnny Cash though.
A young trio were playing as we arrived. Very flash and confident guitar player. they all smiled and raved their way through every hit of the 80s and 90s! A cute young jukebox! The dancefloor was full of woman shaking everything they had to all these radio monsters.
We had to follow this.
We set up and the dry ice set the scene and I told 'em the party was over and we were about to ruin their evening. "Go bother the fellow who booked us!" I advised.

We then tore it up for a good hour and three quarters or so.
Yeah we threw in some dynamite disco tunes that night! The party went up another few notches. We drove 'em crazy!

First of all, I would like to appreciate the choice of theme that you have chosen for your blog, it looks perfectly wonderful. Now, coming on today's post I must say that you have explained the subject in a concise manner that makes it easily understandable. Thanks for this information. Melbourne Bars

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
