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.

flash in the pantz - digital single out now

flash in the pantz is the first single from the forthcoming album by dave graney and the mistLY (aka the lurid yellow mist). The album is full of pop rock sensation, flash and drama and the mistLY fire at will with a simple but totally drilled arsenal of two electric guitars, bass and drums. And lashings of vocals. The album, “you’ve been in my mind”, will be the first set of new dave graney songs since “knock yourself out” in 2009. The album will be out in June and live dates will follow.

 “flash in the pantz is a song about being a man. I love all those songs on the subject by Muddy Waters and Bo Diddley and thought I’d add one of mine to the pile. It’s got real big chunky major chords and rolling tom toms under all the voices in the chorus. A big beat song. I heard a woman caller on sports radio dismiss a player as a “flash in the pantz” and took off from there. Like a lot of my songs it starts from somewhere stupid and goes off somewhere else. I thought, are we not all the result of a couple of people having a flash in the pantz?” dave graney

 “flash in the pantz” is a digital only single and is available now. “you’ve been in my mind” will be released digitally and on cd out on Cockaigne in June -touring nationally in July. Fuse distribution. http://www.thedavegraneyshow.com

flash in the pantz- lyrics 
I’m a man, I reach for a hammer first
and if that fails, that fails
we’ll gather up the pieces and stare at them a while
we could’ve waited but we don’t wait
we don’t wait

if it moves, bash it forward
always seems to be a good idea
flash in the pantz

I’m a man , I do the seein’
you’re lookin’ at me! I see you lookin’ at me
you don’t see me lookin’ at you
I’m a man, I do the seein’
and the lookin’

if it moves, bash it forward
always seems to be a good idea
flash in the pantz

I’m a man
I’m a  man
flash in the pantz

Hi Dave, I was at the Red Rattler and was blown away how hard you rocked the new songs. Totally transformed them into something way heavier than on the CD. But then I've gone back to listen to them and I can hear it now. Anyway, awesome show. Can you post the set list, as I would love it make it a playlist.


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
