Theme Solutions and Boffins Books are proud to present Dave Graney as he speaks about his new book Workshy: My Life as a Bludge. Dave Graney will be speaking in conversation with Bob Gordon.
'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

Legendary Australian showman Dave Graney returns to the page and reveals the lengths he has gone to avoid anything that really feels like work. 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.
Dave Graney is a guitar player, songwriter, singer, performer, author and broadcaster who was born in country South Australia and resides in the hills of Melbourne. He performs regularly nationwide.
Workshy is his third book.
