About Me

My photo
Two albums in 2021 Everything Was Funny by Dave Graney and Clare Moore on CD and digital and the digital only 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.

We are also launching our album EVERYTHING WAS FUNNY at the Northcote Social Club Sunday May 1st. TICKETS HERE.

May 6th we  play in Ballarat at VOLTA

 Everything Was Funny came out in October 2021 and we have worked out how to present it as a duo playing vibes, keys guitars, percussion and also accessing some mellotron sounds via iPad and also some rhythm tracks via a Cymatic audio interface and the shows have been really great new experiences. Very rich array of sounds.

In the meantime we have also continued recording and have more than enough for two new albums at the moment. Looks like the next album is going to be a rocker.

We finally got into a  studio with Stu and Stuart to lay down four songs we have started to rehearse around the beginning of 2020. Then you know what happened and we couldn't rehearse let alone record.

The virus is still around and Idge couldn't do the session as his daughter contracted the bug at school so he had to isolate and we did the work with Laura Hanccock at the desk. It was a great experience as we just had the four songs to do which we completed in one day. Everybody really knew the parts and the songs inside out. We even knocked off early.

Funny thing - I picked up my Talman to overdub and the strap failed and it fell perfectly onto the spot where the jack is inserted


the studio control room at Soundpark.

Clare Moore, Stu Thomas and Stuart Perera doing some vocal overdubs.

With studio engineer Laura.


Idge has a lot of vintage gear. Mics, compressors and reverb units. Thats a Roland Space Echo behind Clare.

In the kitchen at Soundpark. Its been a very mild summer in Melbourne. Meanwhile Sydney has had a years rainfall in 4 monthas and Northern NSW and Southern Qld has flooded twice.

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
