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.

2013 so far - singles, albums, DAMES - JOHNNY GHOST - NDE - WAM and DAZ. More to come.

I started this year by  releasing some digital singles....

I've been doing some shows with the mistLY as well. Been to Adelaide and played around Melbourne.

All the while, the DAMES album was going to be coming out, and that involved rehearsals and gigs. Still going on. Been very enjoyable sitting off to the side playing guitar.
I also made this video for a song from the album, focussing on some of Clare moore's obsessions. Monstertrucks, demolition derbies, apocalyptic abandoned theme parks and the like. It was for the song JUNK TIME...

I also put out a Bandcamp only album of a show we did in 2006 at the Butterfly Club. A "narrative show". POINT BLANK. I was going to do it as one long file but the site couldn't take anything of that size so its two files. Roughly thirteen songs. All written by me and around the story of the heroic battles a performer must take part in to WIN the small piece of stage he wants to live on.

This clip will give you an idea of what the show was like. NO MICS. Just singing into the room.

This Black and White clip is from different season of the show.

I'll be putting up the sequel to POINT BLANK, LIVE IN HELL.  pretty soon.

There was also the BandCamp release of THE SOUNDTRACK TO THE MOVIE JOHNNY GHOST by Donna McRae.  A film which Donna has pushed around the world and, after more than a year , may get an Australian screening soon! (Its been very inspiring watching Donnas committment to the film.)

In the midst of this we rehearsed and recorded an album for Harry Howard and the NDE.
At the session Clare and I LEARNED six or so songs just before they were recorded. (I play the bass) It was an intense couple of days. the album is very, very good. Harrys songs are stellar. Edwina is a formidable performer. We're playing a lot of shows. Hopefully into 2014 and also hopefully to Europe. I shot this clip on my toy video camera and edited it in iMovie.

I have also been continuing to work on my SOLO album I started in January. This will come out in 2014. There was also the debut of WAM and DAZ. The rap duo I have with Will Hindmarsh from Go Go Sapien. A single will be coming out before the end of the year. Probably called PHONEY BALONEY (porn on the phone) . We have recorded about 8 songs.

This photo is from a show at the VANGUARD in Sydney earlier in the year. My guitar strap broke mid song and fell to DEE DEE RAMONE levels. As you can see it made my head expand terribly and also my hands. Like I'm in that SUPERGRASS clip.

Those soundcloud singles are the business, man. Radical vocal vibrato; leaves Joan Baez and the Roachster in the shade.

Junk time reminds me of royal trux.


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
