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.

Harry Howard and the NDE Euro dates. Graney and Moore in London , Berlin and Paris. Other links and clips.

The FEARFUL WIGGINGS tour has been quite extensive, though we have yet to make it to WA or to Tasmania. In time.
There was no real concept or idea other than to play the music from the album, as if we were IN CONCERT, no matter where we were setting up. Also, there were no real rave up songs with drums on the album so Clare Moore was on keys and percussion for the most part, though she improvised a bass drum ( with a snare case) and sometimes had both a snare and a ride cymbal.

Thanks to Barry C Douglas for this clip of the last stop on the tour- the Northcote Social Club in Melbourne on a  Sunday afternoon.




Stu Perera's solo on that track is the best! Clare also shifts between organ, percussion and a backbeat. Stu Thomas on his Burns Baritone as bass.

Did many other interesting musical things during the year too. Such as this Lou Reed tribute at RRR performance space. I screwed up the lyrics a bit. (Was perfect at soundcheck a half hour before). The strings were arranged by Bronwyn Henderson from the SPOILS.




 I also sang "Charleys Girl" from Coney Island Baby.

We'd started the year in Geelong. Outside. In the cold. In the street. I was getting used to my new OLD Ibanez jazz box. Thanks again to Barry for capturing it. We played THE SHERIFF OF HELL as a trio.



Had a great time playing in off the wall, off Broadway kinds of places where people have set up their own situations to listen to music. Hospitality school graduate run rock venues are the worst. I mean places where food and security comes first and music last. Screw you guys!

Also, look out for DAVE GRANEY DAY on Basic fm out of the UK. A digital station. 24 hrs of Dave Graney music! September 30th is the day.

And this great story Chris Hollow wrote about Tony Mahonys work on all our imagery for 22 years. Its just been put up on the Double J site. Chris did the interview and wrote it up about three months ago, as we were heading out on these dates.

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
