baby I wish I’d been a better popstar wish I’d known when it started/I would’ve gone without more/would’ve stayed inside I would’ve stayed in shape I could’ve been even more of a bastard/I could’ve really settled some scores stayed low/kept my head down/picked my moments/kept my powder dry and then BAM! baby I wish I’d been a better popstar cleaner! I was so messy/nothin’ but trouble I should’ve showed up/had my act together/showed some respect for the room baby I wish I’d been a better popstar I could be dead by now/it’d be all over/you could be on your fourth or fifth I blew it baby! I screwed up!when it was time to shine I wasn’t shiny I should’ve stayed on message/I shoulda repeat myself/repeat I shoulda known it was on! baby I wish I’d been a better popstar

Once I had an answering machine though I never asked it a question it wasn’t for me I suppose I could’ve called it myself but those were more serious times things were simpler everybody had one they were filters extensions others threw them up as screens force-fields that’s how simple things were you were in you were out you were how or away people knew you you knew how people knew you if you weren’t around they could leave a message on your answering machine don’t you wish you had an answering machine? it never got smart it never got any smarter it didn’t answer back it just answered people had no reason not to believe that you weren’t really there that you were sittin’ there listenin’ in real time “hello, you have called Blah, Blah and Blah we ain’t here right now leave a message after the beep and we might get back to ya hah!” Once I had an answering machine though I never asked it a question don’t you wish don’t you wish you had an answering machine?

about

Recorded late 2019 on a midweek night at the deluxe Melbourne jazz club onto the house 24 track system and mixed by Dave Graney a year later, deep within the 2020-21 pandemic miasma.

A rock'n'roll album. Drums, bass, guitars, vibes and vocals.
Tracks focused on the two albums released in that year, ZIPPA DEEDOO WHAT IS/WAS THAT/THIS? and ONE MILLION YEARS DC. Plus a few from earlier albums. This digital live release compliments the two others from 2020, the minimalist and lyrical "Dave Graney and Clare Moore with Robin Casinader - IN CONCERT" and the one-off super group that was documented on "Dave Graney and Clare Moore with Georgio the dove Valentino and Malcolm Ross".

This album starts out cool and slinky and builds to a blazing rave up.
