King of the dudes
available at itunes
dave graney and the mistLY are to release a rockn’roll album in the second half of 2012.To be a self titled 12 track upvibed , loud and smart masterpiece.
In the meantime, Dave Graney recorded “king of the dudes” and decided to put it out digitally. For the hell of it.
It’s a one off kind of a tune. Electro boogie in style with all instruments played by Dave Graney. Guitars sliding and vamping way back in the mix. And up high. Reminiscent in parts of “night theme” from Iggy Pop and James Williamsons late 70s opus , “kill city”.
“If there was a town
If there was a city
If there was a world worth lordin’ it over
I would be there ignoring one and all
Cool as spreading fern
King of the dudes…”
The title came from a character in a book about 19th Yankee railroad robber barons. Dave Graney, as usual, took off from there with a hiccup driven stroll and a meditation on the strength to be drawn from time alone. Gathering strength to throw yourself once again into the social world. The whirling world of gossip, reputation and useless but addictive political intrigue.
Dave Graney “king of the dudes” digital only release from march 5th.

- 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
