Date & time
NIGHT OF THE WOLVERINE 30TH ANNIVERSARY TOUR
For this special 30th Anniversary presentation, Dave Graney and the original members of The Coral Snakes will reform to perform the landmark album ‘Night Of The Wolverine’ in full. In a two set program, they will also perform classics and deep cuts from their mid 90’s heyday.
Dave Graney & The Coral Snakes made their own way through the 90’s…. nobody stood near them. They cut through with wit, flash and weirdness for four albums. They won through without being indie in nature or grunge by nature or demeanour. They had ambition, power and style. They also had grooves and bounce and Dave Graney used street slang and literate word bombs to fully state his case.
The band played every kind of festival happening at the time, were regular performers on national TV, had Gold Discs and ARIA awards. Thy were an island for groovers in the grim grunge years. This album marked their unlikely move into the mainstream consciousness and widely regarded as a classic of Australian alternative rock music.
Dave Graney on vocals, Clare Moore on drums, Rod Hayward on guitar and Robin Casinader on keyboards were the original players who recorded ‘Night Of The Wolverine’ in 1993. They will be joined on this tour by Stu Thomas on the bass.
“Part lounge, part country, and part straightforward pop, Graney produced a mini masterpiece with this album. A disarmingly likeable mixture of gently humorous lyrics backed by the impeccable musicianship of the Coral Snakes, this album deserved to be huge.”
“This band is a Black Statesman-73! Caprice! Leaded!!!”
