Q&A Scene: Clare Moore

Tell us about your new single/ album/ tour?
Let’s Get Tight is our new Dave Graney and Clare Moore Album ,recorded over the last year ,each song recorded and released separately, one per month.

Dave Graney and I are also playing a show on Saturday June 3rd with the Coral Snakes at MEMO Music Hall in St Kilda.

What’s your favourite work at this point in time?
I’m digging playing with the Coral Snakes,slamming out those great songs with Robin Casinader, Rod Hayward and Stu Thomas and watching Dave bust several moves sans guitar. He can really cut a rug!

Tell us a quick, on the road or studio, anecdote.
On our recent tour of NSW, I played drums, sang, played vibes, keyboard and percussion, sometimes more than one at a time!!!

What, or who, inspires you?
I am greatly influenced by the music of television and film,particularly that of the ‘60s and 70s from the US, UK and Italy,…I really like Italian horror movies.

Which song do you wish you wrote?
I wish I had written the theme to the film The Ipcress File, one of John Barry’s finest.

What’s next for you?
Dave and I have been asked to write music for a horror film directed by Donna McRae called Lost Gully Road

I’m working on a new band project with Jane Dust and Emily Jarrett called Routines..

And I shall start on my next solo album shortly..

What’s your scene?
Our van.
