Dave Graney and Clare Moore are back in 2019 with a new album called ZIPPA DEEDOO WHAT IS/WAS THAT/THIS?
It’s approximately their 30th (?) and is a killer set of rock music – made properly, like they’ve always done. It has “eight songs done thirteen ways” and ranges from pop gems like “Baby I wish I’d been a better pop star”, to their homage to Stones Lore in ULTRAKEEF, and then the 8 1/2 minute West Coast epic jam that is served up twice in “Is That What You Did?”.

They play music drawn from a lifetime in rock ’n’ roll culture. They didn’t learn their licks in school, they made their own mistakes and set up their own standards.
Whatever they do, whatever they play, they bring their ace game. Their primo strategies. Their stellar grooves and street wise lyrical fire.

Dave Graney was awarded ‘Best Male Vocalist’ at the ARIA Music Awards of 1996 for his work on The Soft ‘n’ Sexy Sound, while “Feelin’ Kinda Sporty” won ‘Best Video’ in 1997 and he has received seven other ARIA Award nominations.

SOLD OUT – DON MCGLASHAN (NZ) in Concert + Dinner at Paragon Café, Katoomba, Blue Mountains, Fri 20th May 2016

DON MCGLASHAN (NZ) in concert at the iconic Paragon.

CONCERT + CHAMPAGNE COCKTAIL + 3 COURSE GOURMET DINNER + TEA/COFFEE, BISCOTTI & CHOCOLATES!

Fri 20th May 2016
Strictly limited tickets!

Don McGlashan is recognised as one of New Zealand’s foremost songwriters, artists and performers, with five entries in APRA New Zealand’s “Top 100 Songs Of All Time”.
His career spans from the seminal post-pop-punk band Blam Blam Blam, to art experimentalists The Front Lawn, to platinum selling and internationally recognised band The Mutton Birds.
He has worked and performed with Crowded House, Paul Kelly, Johnny Marr, Wilco, Brian Ritchie and members of Radiohead and has scored a number of feature films, including Jane Campion’s “An Angel At My Table”.

McGlashan’s songs have been described by Q Magazine as ‘from the same cerebral power-pop mother lode as Big Star and early REM’.

He returns to Australia to unveil a rich new collection of highly personal songs (“Lucky Stars”) exploring love, regret and mortality, infused with optimism and joy.

McGlashan started the raw material for this new album at a little house on the Thames Estuary, then realised them in Neil Finn’s writing room at Roundhead Studio with guitarist Tom Rodwell. He produced them with former Mutton Birds bandmate David Long, (who also contributes some textural guitar, organ and banjo) and drummer Chris O’Connor. “I went away, imagining that I would write a rather solitary, introspective record, but what came out had a lot more joy and optimism than I expected.”

‘Lucky Stars’ contains many songs which are very personal reflections on McGlashan’s own life and thoughts: “This time, I don’t seem to be adopting characters to get an idea across… the ‘I’ is generally me in these songs”. And unlike previous solo or Mutton Birds albums, these songs enjoy a simpler and more direct sound, while spinning some very engaging yarns.

“…all the hallmarks of his singular style are in place — the spine-tingling way he moves from major to minor keys, his keenly observational eye, the thoughtfulness with which his songs are forged… No one else gets close to writing songs like that, and making them work”. – METRO MAG
