ONE MILLION YEARS DC is the title for the new album credited to Dave Graney and Clare Moore.
11 tracks recorded and mixed at the Ponderosa in Melbourne.













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

The great thing about @davegraney 's writing is not just the humour (constant) or the encyclopaedic knowledge of music (that's a given) - it's his withering assessments of human vanity. #workshy is outstanding & full of insights into how we put together a life @AffirmPress

My previous memoir “1001 Australian Nights” was more dreamy and abstract. About half awake dream that it was in my first band, the Moodists and how we imagined each other and also getting my tone and voice. It had two parts; coming into the world and then speaking as a part of the world. Two voices - innocence and experience.

Workshy has more personal detail about growing up in Mount Gambier, my individual and social identities and influences and my love of playing football as a kid and generally goofing about and doing my best to avoid work as best as I could. Also, the actual options that were open to me. Then I had to deal with the world and after a while I found I had dug into a weird kind of a groove.

Also, truth #1- “there’s no retiring in this business….” . (thanks Billy Miller)

In so many ways, musicians have been the canaries in the coal mine of much of modern life. We got to the brutal face of the modern scene where everybody is a “freelancer” first. Now everybody has to “manage the brand”. But we’ve always been depicted as hapless chancers and fantasists who avoided “the real world”. Hey, now people talk loosely and carelessly of “the gig economy”. Talk to a musician if you want to know what the future holds! We’ve been there for a while.

The cover art is by Tony Mahony, who has done almost all our cd and album covers and videos since1992.
I worked with Janet Austin on the editing and she did an amazingly thorough and creative job. She really gave it some air where needed and got it singing. Then the team at Affirm did their final stylistic edits and proofs. Thanks to everybody!

"Meandering humanity and honest music never follow guidelines. Neither does Dave Graney. Society didn't get fussy and uptight after he was born, it got fussy and uptight after it made being born Dave Graney illegal. The antidote: read this and remember what's real; better still, read it at work. This is a book that should come in a brown paper bag."

“Dave Graney is a genuine hipster bohemian street intellectual.  A committed rock'n'roll theoretician and a contrarian outsider of he first order.  
This second memoir is as entertaining, funny and well written as his previous book '1000 Australian Nights".  He has a terse and semi-abstract approach to writing about the absurd reality of being a non-mainstream musical artist in Australia and Europe,  and also of the succession of dispiriting and occasionally quite tolerable day jobs he has had. 
The book is liberally spattered with hilarious observations of the art and culture of the recent past and many amusing personal anecdotes.  There are also some arcane metaphysical ruminations on the technical minutiae of writing recording and performing his excellent songs.
Dave is the unchallengeable King of Australian rock memoirists.  Buy this book now!”

"you've been in my mind" 2012 scorcher

art Tony Mahony



you’ve been in my mind is the 2012 album from dave graney and the mistLY (aka the lurid yellow mist).
An album of short, whip-smart pop rock songs with lashings of ideas, flash,wit and bounce.
That’s dave graney on electric 12 string guitar, stuart perera on blazing left handed Rickenbacker, clare moore on drums and stu thomas on bass, with everybody singing too.
recorded in January with engineer andrew “idge” hehir at soundpark in Brunswick and mixed by dave graney at the ponderosa, its the first collection of new graney songs since “knock yourself out” in 2009.

a few words from dave
this bunch of songs was recorded quickly, just the way I like it. Its not about layers of sounds, its just the simple setup of the band in the room and the songs. We knew them all pretty well so every song was put down to the machines with absolute certainty, power and poise. Its got all the flavours and tones about music that I’ve loved.They all came out in this session. . I guess the bedrock tone and attitude of my music is 70s rock. That’s the west coast american sound in the vocals and my guitar and the r&b grooves and the jazz voicings of the chords. They are all the changes and tempos that come out of me, naturally. Its pretty upbeat and begins with a 2:40 second song called blues negative that’s over before you know it and doesn’t let up”.

the brother who lived
all our friends were stars
like a millionaire
a boy named epic
the royal troll
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)

"Lure of the tropics" . The legendary 1992 cd that shows Dave Graney'n'the Coral Snakes at their wildest, most improvisatory , raggedy assed best. Recorded at one show in Melbourne in 1991 with their last cd ("my life on the plains")being released two years before and the subsequent one ("I was the hunter and I was the prey") seemingly never to see the light of day and "Night of the Wolverine" still two years in the future, this is a recording of a band running on sheer bravado, guts and glory. Features the title track, a ten minute improvised, raging jam around an anonymous 19th century poem and the equally spontaneous "Jesus, what'd I do". This is a hell of a record and only available through this site.
