The second digital release from Australian artist, Dave Graney in 2016.
Follows up "I'm a Good Hater" which was released in February.
The plan is to release a song every month.

"I played in a freezer- in the meatpackin' district
I played in a a mortuary- Kinselas- Sydney! true! but...."

This Is The Deadest Place I've Ever Died In.

Bass, electro rhythm track, organ and marimba. With a few strums of an acoustic guitar. All instruments played by Dave Graney and Clare Moore.
The track finds them exploring the rough and ragged electro funk that was around in that old time post punk era. Hey, they were there!

A tribute to all the lousy, horrible rooms that have enveloped and tried to extinguish the hope of every plucky player that had the temerity to enter and expect some good cheer all around.

"I ain't no party pooper..This place is pooped!"

This Is The Deadest Place I've Ever Died In.

Inspired in part by a Willie Nelson track for the early 2000s called "I never came in here (and I ain't leavin')" and in other parts by an effect on the rhythm track that had Dave Graney asking Clare Moore to drape and slide a string of pearls over her ride and crash cymbals , "don't hit ‘em, just let them down onto the surface and then lift them off...."

This Is The Deadest Place I've Ever Died In.

Yes the players always take the rap. Don't you know it's the rooms? There's always a post mortem, around the corpse of the night.

"and I died, many times, sometimes I think I might have-lived to die!"

This Is The Deadest Place I've Ever Died In.

Out as a digital release March 25th. Accompanied by a wonderfully weird clip comprised of photos taken by Barry Douglas at an "old time Australia" tourist attraction.
