About Me

My photo
Current album Dave Graney and the mistLY LYVE AT BYRDS. Two albums in 2020, "Dave Graney and Clare Moore In Concert with Robin Casinader" and "Dave Graney and Clare Moore with Georgio "the dove" Valentino and Malcolm Ross". Two albums in 2019. ONE MILLION YEARS DC by Dave Graney and Clare Moore and ZIPPA DEEDOO WHAT IS/WAS THAT/THIS? from Dave Graney and the mistLY. 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 Dickey Betts, John Cippolina or Grant Green - but not in this lifetime, I know.

A review from the UK here http://bobonscr.com/2015/03/04/i-will-have-always-have-been-here-before/

"play mistLY for me" is a collection of live recordings from shows over the last few years. 14 tracks. Shows in Adelaide, Newcastle, Katoomba and Melbourne. Featuring different instrumentation and approaches to songs. Recorded on a hard disc recorder sitting in the rooms where we played. No direct feeds from a desk or mics on any instruments, just a stereo track from somewhere in the ROOM. No overdubs attempted. It’s all here just as it happened.

Here's a clip for "a woman skinnies a man up" from FEARFUL WIGGINGS made by the CINEMANIA crew .. more bad acting FROM ME.

CINEMANIA are mainly Nick Cowan and his brother Alex ( the lead actor) and Thomas Whiteside.
They've done a clip for us before (we need a champion) and also did one for Harry Howard and the NDE called "DEVILS". They also have  rap crew called M.A.D. who played in Melbourne recently with SMB (steve miller band) and the NDE. They instituted a feud/ battle with the SMB which should continue for a while. Online insults were hurled and they finished their set with a song called "fuck the SMB" . This was taken badly, by some friends of the band and drinks were spilt - on peoples heads.Then M.A.D. went off to play in Adelaide and apparently killed it to a room of young clubbers.

Had some great shows with Harry Howard and the NDE this year. Playing with Kid Congo and the Pink Monkey Birds was a delight. Such great guys! We had known Kid from his days in the Gun Club and also the first era of the Bad Seeds. In a world of such ephemeral , fly by night bonds it was great to meet up with an old friend again. His band had such a great, American SWING to their grooves. Naturals. Then we  played with the POP GROUP who were total HEROES to me back in the fabled day and they brought the FIRE to these shows and their new album. Beyond iconic, beyond legends, beyond respect. They killed it at their show. When they played WE ARE TIME I was totally transfixed. The new album is called CITIZEN ZOMBIE. Their show was unfortunately on the same weekend as Golden Plains. people really missed out on a great event.

Then Neneh Cherry turned up in the band room - fresh from a set at Golden plains. This is a picture of me with Gareth Sager and Neneh Cherry and Mark Stewart looming over us all!

 BLB , the show I do on Triple R in Melbourne every Tuesday from 12-2pm, has also been very enjoyable this year. Spoke to an author whos writing I have always enjoyed, Colin Talbot from Melbourne and his new novel THE SWEET MYST. If you ever see his collections of articles from Melbourne underground papers called MASSIVE ROAD TRAUMA- I highly recommend it.
Also did an interview with Malcolm Ross while he was in town and also David McClymont who was a part of the POSTCARD records scene and now lives in Melbourne. David is making music again and his work can be found here.

Also spoke with Matt Walker and Shane from THE LOST RAGAS , sound engineers/producers Anna Laverty and Simon Grounds and amazing NZ music artists Marlon Williams and Aldous Harding. All these interviews can be accessed via the Triple R "On demand " function. Here is the Marlon and Aldous episode..

Dave Graney and Clare Moore with Georgio "the dove" Valentino and Malcolm Ross

Dave Graney and Clare Moore with Robin Casinader - In Concert


Starts with a Kinksy groover sketching a 21st century populist tyrant who coasts in power on waves of public resentment at those on the lowest rungs of the ladder (He Was A Sore Winner). Sweeps across a sci fi terrain with nods to songs in the sand at the end of the world (Pop Ruins) and nods to the ties that bind in the underground communities (Comrade Of Pop and Where Did All The Freaks Go?). Songs about intense, long relationships, defunct technology that didn’t answer back, severe social status definition (I’m Not Just Any Nobody), people wandering through your mind as if it was a garage sale, the anxiety of the long running showman (wide open to the elements again) and ends with a song that’s “a little bit Merle Haggard and a little bit Samuel Beckett”. " Edith Grove! Powis Square! 56 Hope Road! Petrie Terrace!.. The Roxy! The Odeon! Apollo! Palais! Olympia! The Whisky! Detroit Grande!” Pop Ruins!"


ZIPPA DEEDOO WHAT IS/WAS THAT/THIS? (The title comes from the chorus of “Song Of Life” ) is a classic rock’n’roll album. Classic if you lived through what has become known as ”the classic rock era” as it rolled out new and even broke onto the beachhead and morphed into punk. That’s the direction Dave Graney and Clare Moore have always been coming from. They have spent their lives schooled by and immersed in rock ‘n’ roll culture. Neither attended higher education and they dived in deep and kept swimming. From the Moodists through the Coral Snakes /White Buffaloes to the mistLY This is an album with their band, Dave Graney and the mistLY. Stuart Perera has played guitar with them since 1998 and Stu Thomas on bass since 2004. MARCH 2019 ZIPPA DEEDOO WHAT IS/WAS THAT/THIS? 2019 album out on Compact Disc - available here via mail order...

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
