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.

On the campaign trail for our show at the Corner July 9th

Last year , when we played our first shows as Dave Graney 'n' the Coral Snakes since 1997, we went on the campaign trail to get word out to the disparate audience we'd entertained in that period. Doors actually opened in places that find it impossible to approach our current activities in many ways.

We had stories in mainstream and street press and even got onto the ABC 7:30 report. I went into Triple M in Melbourne and talked with Mick Molloy and Eddie McGuire. Clare Moore and I had a chat with Glenn Ridge at Magic 693 and Dennis Walter at 3AW. For those not in Melbourne, these are straight out commercial enterprises. The top rating AM and FM (sports related) frequencies.

Yesterday, ahead of this July 9th show at the Corner, we went into 3AW and spoke with a  fellow called Darren James.This was an afternoon show. They have those high frequency ads for Taylors tree and stump removals, Frank Walker for those damned tiles and my favourite, the DRAIN MAN.

I must tell you how refreshing it is to work/ chat with these people. Them and the production staff they have who source the music and information. They are so on the ball. It is so easy as a performer, to be in that room. They are relaxed and cool and mostly really funny. Darren at 3AW played us in with our very latest digital release "Are You Out Of Your Mind (Get Back In)" and we chatted about the Melbourne scene and the show we are doing.

Easy fucking peasy. He played Feelin Kinda Sporty from 1997 and engaged with both myself and Clare. A woman called in to talk about a venue in her area. He cracked a gag about being "the original love god of late night FM.." I laughed and said it was an honour to be working with an actual  God, to which he said " and look at me now- selling broken down furniture on Sunday mornings..." (He mainly works on the weekends on a  kind of radio version of the Trading Post and with the piss weak Melbourne version of an opinionated Shock Jock, John Michael Howson. (More like being flogged with a damp lettuce leaf).

In most cases, commercial radio on both AM and FM have proved to be the most approachable and open. On air, they have this talent who just sit in  a groove and know what they are doing. Pros. They do not freak out about their audience and what they can or can't say or what their audience can or can't hear. They are cool.

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
