Work Shy: My Life as a Bludge

Dave Graney

In his inimitable style, Graney veers from a feckless childhood in blue-collar South Australia, to the punk rock scene of 1980s London, and beer-soaked nights touring Australia where he worked very hard at not working at all.

But in slacking off, Graney became one of the hardest working musicians in the industry, constantly evolving, reinventing, staying one step ahead of everyone - even himself. Workshy is half written by Dave Graney the consummate and tireless performer, and half-written by Dave Graney the bludge. The magic is that you’re never sure which is which.

‘I’ve spent most of my adult life as a musician, hardly working. Just the way I like it. If I were to try and enter the civilian workforce now, and had to write a resume of my activities over most of my adult life, I might as well say I’ve been in gaol or marooned on a desert island. My CV would be filled with great, unexplained chunks of time, punctuated by inauthentic public sightings where I was seen to be engaged in something decidedly dodgy. Music related but shifty.’- Dave Graney
