“Rock Music does not usually accommodate the likes of Dave Graney. Few Australian performers have been as resilient, and few have presented as many ideas in song form. ….Graneys tactic is to bring a highly developed context to his audience – his “velvet fog”, his “lurid yellow mist” – in opposition to the sentimentality of “rock’s wasteland of howling dopes”
Mark Gomes… Australian Book Review
New Memoir ccoming in October through Affirm press
"Perhaps the distinguishing feature of Graney's music in comparison to the aforementioned groups is a distinct, if relative, lack of darkness and alienated angst. Graney, rather (particularly in the post-Moodist period), has created a niche that is absolutely unique. Free from any trace of the confessional, he creates vignettes that range from absurdist to deeply moving — often both — mingling wry social observation with a humor that perfectly threatens to stray, but never finally crosses the line, into novelty. One aspect of Graney's distinctness — and distinction — is the very persona-ness of his persona (beginning with costume; from safari suits to Tom of Finland leathers, deadly serious camp is a trademark). Unlike so many other front men, Graney isn't performing faux-transgressively as the typical dysfunctional rock star, drug-addled, sexually voracious, yet constantly heartbroken — but rather transgresses that same transgression through the obviously conscious adoption of a kitsch that is tongue-in-cheek, but wherein the illusion nonetheless remains firmly unbroken. It's an act that is postmodern but never pretentious, both distancing and deeply endearing, especially when combined with his obvious lyrical smarts".

July digital release is Gloria Grahame (fuck or die) by Dave Graney
Gloria Grahame - Universal link (spotify itunes etc)
A new digital single from Dave Graney. The third for 2018. This time it’s a breakout keys driven groover called Gloria Grahame (fuck or die). Its vintage Graney.
In the 90s there was the paen to the laconic and beat actor Warren Oates (1991), the instrumental Confessions Of Serge Gainsbourg (1994) and the tribute to Ava Gardner that was Mogambo (1993).
On the last physical album, 2017’s LETS GET TIGHT, there was the Charlie Parker jazz punning wonder that was DRIFTING DONNA REED.
This time Dave Graney drops down to his mean pulp groundwater with a pulsing, keys driven celebration of film noir icon Gloria Grahame, star of the Big Heat and In A Lonely Place recently the subject of the movie “Film Stars Don’t Die In Liverpool”. The song celebrates her cold power and resilience and enigmatic, restless persona. It touches on an apocryphal incident where, as they watched a couple having sex in a hotel room, she allegedly pulled a gun on her then husband , director Nicholas Ray and gave him the choice, fuck or die!
