The sixth digital release for Graney and Moore in 2016.
Follows up "Are You Out Of Your Mind? (Get Back In)" which was released in June.
The plan is to release a song every month.

A song about looking for a home, a place to identify with and come from. As a performer or as a person, it helps to have a story - "you need a time and a place and a story- you need a push". (Push is an Australian term for a "crew". A Clique). Klooks Kleek was a club in West Hampstead, London in the 60s and 70s. A teen Dave Graney had an album by John Mayall recorded "live at klooks kleek”. Sounded like a happening place! It flew up like a bird into the mythological turrets of his mind, and came back out here in this song. Later he lived nearby and went to shows there when it was the Moonlight Club.

Reaching for a majestic, mythic tone. Twelve string acoustic guitar, bass, piano and synths against a rhythm machine and a heavily reverbed tambourine. Pop music in that Procul / May 68 style and tone, right here in 2016.


You need a Kleek, Klook
You need a Kleek
How can you happen?
How do you happen, anymore?
You need a Kleek, Klook
You need some weight
some critical maths
you need a host body
from whence you can dive
You need a Kleek, Klook
You need a push

you need a time and a place and a story
you need to click
you need to slot in and look right at home

you can't just pop
you can't just divide
you need to have happening people around
poeople need to be dealing with you

You need a Kleek, Klook
You need a Kleek

people need to be dealing with you
like you're a problem
their problem
You need a Kleek, Klook
You need a Kleek

you need to be
you need to be!
