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.

what were those recent shows like? POW St Kilda

Dave Graney and the Coral Snakes fought many heroic battles in the smaller upstairs piano bar of this hotel. Friends we knew worked there. The Moodists played there in 1985. I think PBS even started upstairs there in the 80s. It was a fine , dodgy establishment. Much more the home of st Kilda weirdness old school variety than the Esplanade. Though nothing like Joeys and the Linden Tree. You could wander in to that piano bar any time of day or night and slide into a  booth and meet some likely types.
The front bar was, and still is, a last bastion of that St Kilda weirdness. (Along with the Bowling club up the road) They have started putting on bands there which is a  cool thing.
The upstairs , where that piano bar used to be, is a fancy restaurant and the small front , public bar has had to install noise cancelling stuff in the old disused fireplaces and other parts of the walls to not disturb the fine diners. While bands play, the front door has to be boarded up as well. This is in a  pub on the corner of Fitzroy and Acland streets, with trams rattling down there constantly. Why is music so annoying to people?

We played two sets to old friends and the types of blow-ins that St Kilda has always attracted. people from out of town came to see the show. St Kilda is known all over the country as a shady suburb. A couple of streets where people can lose their shame. What is it with these dills who move there for a  good nights sleep?

Between sets, three pilled up young dudes walked on to the stage and put our guitars on. Posing silently as if in their own video. The security chased them. One pulled out his cock as he walked off.
Nobody died.

Hi, I found your post really helpful. Thanks for posting such informative content. It is worth noting and I really liked the presentation as well. I will surely come back for more of interesting posts on Melbourne Bars


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
