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.

dave graney EARLY FOLK shows at the butterfly club 19th-23rd June - more details

The Butterfly Club is now at Carson Place in the city of Melbourne. Off Little Collins st between Swanston and Elizabeth.
The shows are from 19th - 23rd June.
I never do "secret" shows. All my shows are secret!
Wednesday 19th and Sunday 23rd start at 6pm. the other nights are a 7pm start.
You can book tickets here.Much cheaper with groups of people!

I am unsure whether I'll be doing it totally acoustic or not. I mean no amplification or microphones at all. Probably try it that way on the first night and then see how my voice ( and the room) handle it.
I was going to do  a set of my songs about the places I've lived in. I started to go through them and never got my mind out of Mt Gambier SA. Always been thinking of that area. My sense of self as an outsider came from there. Coming to Melbourne. From outside.
There was the early songs with the Moodists like "where the trees walk downhill" and "chads car". "I Caught my heel in a crack of time", "you had to be drunk", "leavin' the Mount",
"thats the way it's gonna be", "everybody's gone". I wanted to touch down to earth with these songs.

I always loved abstractions and poetic flights to dead ends. Circling emotional terrain from other heights.
Its going to be five nights so I imagine it'll be different on the Sunday from the Wednesday.

It'll be me and a couple of acoustic guitars. Six and twelve string guitars. A Maton and  KYairi.

So I'm lookin' forward to the show. EARLY FOLK. Its like its my own early folk. My blues.
That window is in one of the bars. It looks out onto Collins Street.

No comments:


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
