About Me

My photo
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 Charlie Christian or Grant Green -but not in this lifetime, I know.

Top Three Towns Podcast and Stage It Shows continuing.

 I did a podcast with Philby J and Nick Vulture on "top three regional towns". I presumed it meant Australian towns and so thats what I talked about. We all had three to talk about.

Melbourne is coming out of a three month lockdown. We couldn't go further than 5k's from our houses or be outside for more than an hour to exercize each day and masks are still mandatory. Clare and I haven't been far from our house since the beginning of March so it wasn't that much of a strain. We also were already wearing masks if we went to the shop and will continue to do so for a while. 

It went from a peak of 725 or so in July/August to twelve straight days in a  row to today with zero infections. The state government did it all, with the Feds, the media and the opposition all hanging off of them trying to drag them down all the way.

I've been reading books I've bought over the years and could continue that for a while though I do miss rummaging about in secondhand bookshops.

I've been trying to read a bit more French language texts and also got into the collected letters of Paul Bowles.

 Every Tuesday I've been presenting a radio show on Triple R from 12-2pm. Its called BLB and I've been doing it via Skype with Andrew Delaney working the panel in the studio. I used to drag in  a lot of vinyl to play but I've become obsessed with music released in 2020. I have been endeavouring to use Bandcamp as opposed to Spotify. Bandcamp is the "antispotify".

 You can listen back to a recent show here.

  We have also continued to do our Stage It shows. We also did a private zoom party for some people in Myanmar. Getting used to different platforms for streaming has been an education

For our Stage It shows we first discovered you need Broadband and then an external camera and the an external audiointerface. We have had our NBN BRoadband serviced at the node after a dropout and feel its all pretty smooth now. Though the area is full of variables. Peoples browsers and the internet traffic - which has been heavy with everybody being at home.

Our next show is Thursday November 19th and here is a link.  

Then there is Sunday November 22 (Australian time ) when Clare Moore and I play a live streaming set at 8am AEDT which is Saturday November 21st 1pm in Los Angeles, 3 pm in Chicago, 4pm in New York and 9pm in the UK. Tickets link here. (We do a set every second weekend for our mates in the Northern hemisphere).

 People all over the world are booking live shows in 2021 and beyond but I am not so sure yet. This is going to be it for a good while and I have been really enjoying it.

 We are slowly putting down some new material , beginning with our instrumentals, and should have that stuff coming out in 2021.

In the meantime we are almost finished Dave Graney and the mistLY LYVE AT BYRDS which we recorded at  a jazz club in Melbourne in late 2019. Its a real rock'n'roll set.

What am I looking forward to? I would love to go for a drive in the country and also need some white  turtle neck jumpers or skivvies . Maybe a leisure suit as well.

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
