Hey Dave,
Just finished my third listen to "Rock 'n' Roll is Where I Hide" and, man, it's more than fine. A heady and heavy blend of Johnny Thunders, Jimmy Reed and Serge layin' it down in the company of The Wrecking Crew and Jackie Mitoo with that somethin' rare stirred in. Fantastic work . . . congratulations.
Rocksteady

Pat- Basement Discs

He is certainly more fearless than his celebrated friend Nick Cave (even if Cave’s work is imbued with a little more emotional gravity), but the pair do share a similar commitment to performance. I’d argue that Graney’s delivery (as with much of his persona) is a little more challenging than Cave’s, and these are surely contributing factors to the above-mentioned sense of alienation we might feel when confronted with his catalogue.
the EDGE magazine

It’s an intelligent, audio pleasure. It’s so cool it hurts and its effects can be felt outside of the stereo. Rarely has an album so made me want to fuck. Get into it – knock yerself out.

Great review of play mistLY for me from Bob Osborne in Salford

"There’s a fine mix of recent and back catalogue material here with a good nod towards Coral Snakes era tunes. The “audience” feel of the recordings does give a sense that you are actually there in the room enjoying the laid back ambience of the proceedings. The arrangements are both fascinating, effortless and rich giving a new life to a lot of the compositions. The sequencing of the material allows for a seamless listening experience, in some instances the transitions between the songs are little works of art in their own right with a feel of the tone poems of Miles Davis on “Get Up With It” in one instance.  The occasional witty inter-song commentary is worth the price of admission alone.

The highlight for me is a funky stroll through a complete reconstruction of “The Stars Baby, The Stars” which takes an already excellent song to a completely new place."


 

 

There was a party show at Handsome Steves House of Refreshment (aka Steve Miller once of the Moodists) January 10th as Malcolm Ross was visiting from Edinburgh. Malcolm played guitar in the latter day Moodists (1986-87) and in the original London Coral Snakes (appearing on the "I was the hunter and I was the prey" album) . Malcolm did a set backed by the mistLY , the STEVE MILLER Band aka the SMB did a set as did Stu Thomas and as did THE MOODISTS.

"DAVE GRANEY FEARFUL WIGGINGS (Fuse) *****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

2014 solo album from Dave Graney , FEARFUL WIGGINGS out now. Begun early in 2013 and vocals recorded with Lisa Gerard (Dead Can Dance) at her studio in rural Victoria. Most instruments played by Dave Graney with Clare Moore on percussion, drums and vibes and also UK guitar genius Nick Harper on two songs. A single will be released in early 2014. Its quite pop. Begun with acoustic guitar tracks. A singer songwriter record in some ways.


Here is a page with the story of FEARFUL WIGGINGS

a TRACK BY TRACK story of FEARFUL WIGGINGS on Mess and Noise

Story about FEARFUL WIGGINGS from Australian Musician Magazine

Tracks are A woman skinnies a man up, everything was legendary with robert, how can you get out of london? flower of the earth, country roads unwinding, I was there, look into my shades, I'm the stranger in town, I know you can't see me, everything is perfect in it's beginning, fearful wiggings, je est un autre, the old docklands wheel.

the brother who lived

like a millionaire
a boy named epic

clingin’ to the coast
I am your humble servant
midnight to dawn
anchors aweigh
I’m seein’ demons
twilight of a villain
while you dream,I live
I ain’t natural
are we goin’ too fast for love?
she looked at me from out of her eyes
I don’t know anything
my old gloves
commercial street east (starry)

Dave Graney online blogs.

MC Bits- the third Dave Graney narrative show performed at the Butterfly Club. this time, just Dave Graney and Mark Fitzgibbon on piano.

Dave Graney presented the follow up to the acclaimed narrative show "Point Blank" at the Butterfly Club in Melbourne from 26th to 28th March 2009. This was again presented with Clare Moore on percussion and also Stu Thomas on fuzz bass and Stu Perera on guitar. It was called "Dave Graney- LIVE IN HELL!". A second season was undertaken in October 2009. Four nights at the Butterfly Club.
These narrative shows are the most intensely performed and drilled of shows. All the skills are used in this type of a performance. Autobiographical in nature yet mythological in tone. These ae events outside of normal albums and gigs . These are something else.

 

Stu Thomas has recorded a second solo album "Escape from Algebra", which was released in 2010.

Stu has also recorded another album as a bass player in Kim Salmon and the Surrealists. Released on Low Transit Industries in 2010.

a lot to drink about
anchors aweigh
lets live properly (like we're stoned)

Who of us two? (Originally "Qui de nous deux?" by French artist "M")

2003

The Moodists Compilation ,"two fisted art" was out on the on the WMinc label . It is a wild two disc affair. 19 studio tracks fro the 1980 - 1986 life of the band and then 16 live tracks on the other disc. These live tracks were perhaps the main spur for putting the cd out. All unreleased and most never recorded, they capture the band in great sound in three distinct periods. These are in 1982 at the Sedition Festival in Sydney (Mick Turners first gig with the band), 1984 in Melbourne ( Mick Turners last gig with the band) and 1985 in London. All the tracks were selected by Steve Miller , David Graney, Clare Moore ,Chris Walsh and Mick Turner and the WMinc label is run by Steve Miller and Graham Lee. Not many reissues happen in such an in family/ in house manner. This compilation happened because we all wanted it to and felt that the music deserved another listen. Most had never been been released in Australia and all of it had never been released on CD at all.Available on itunes.

There has been much updating of the Moodists section of the site, with a new bio entry and several new pages of pictures and reviews from the 80's period. There are also some pages of peoples views of the times. People who were there commenting on the scene from todays perspective.
