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.

Let's Kick This Mob Out - November digital single.

Yes, first post since Trump got elected. Nobody saw that coming. Though the hot takes on why what happened happened have been dizzying. Post believing anybody situation.
Can only be bad for humanity, that's a given. IMHO.

The right wingers are so happy. Here we have the drivelling idiots led by Red Headed Hanson saying " I told ya so!". Malcolm Roberts, wild eyed Senator voted in by 77 people, acting as if he is representing the nation. Calling out the CSIRO, the Bureau of Meterology, NASA... hey every scientist in the world, that climate change is a sham.  God help us. I have empirical evidence, he is an idiot. But what do I know? I mean , what do I do with what I know?

Brandis, what an arse. Attorney General for business, former arts minister.

Scott Morrison, minister for Cronulla. His language is reaching for ? Dunno. Not anything poetic or grand. Formerly the immigration minister, he delighted in "taking the sugar from the table", so asylum seekers could not espy a glimmer of hope. .
Now he's the Treasurer. He uses phrases such as "the government has wiped it's face". I don't know what he's trying to say. I think it's an allusion to a small child getting it's face dirty and wiping it. Some small idea of domestic irritation and mad, sugar driven activity again.
Then he  started going on about Labour "squeezing the lemon". He was saying "you can only squeeze the lemon so much...." I found this most disturbing as it has always been a sexual metaphor. Muddy Waters or Willie Dixon used it and then Led Zeppelin stole it for "The Lemon Song". I don't want politicians talking in sexual metaphors!
Next he'll be weilding and waving his "throbbing purple headed Gila Monster " at some poor woman on the ABC. (Not with Ray Hadley, who hosts Morrison regularly). Keep it in your pants, mate!

Then Dutton. The immigration minister. From Northern Queensland. A former cop. I'm writing in three letter sentences. An evil brute.

The Trump election has hypercharged all these right wingers and encoraged them to really let fly.
They are really telling us what they reckon. Dutton thinks the Liberal govt of 1977 let in too many Lebanese. Thats how far back he's gone so far.


I wrote this song during the election in June. But it kept being relevant. Times are tough, bastardry everywhere.

The IPA running policy. Who are they? Neo Con bastards. Bastards Incorporated!

This was how Rupert  directed his readers in Sydney in the 2013  election.

In case you missed it , we had a  release asking what will happen to Rupert's pets? The generously salaried lapdogs who do his bidding? Who do they sup with now? How will history see them? Who will clean their graves when they die?

No more shows for 2016. Getting busy in January, as part of this David Bowie show.

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
