Danny Goffey, co-songwriter and founding member of British band Supergrass, has today released his long awaited third solo album Bryan Moone’s DiscoPunk via Distiller. The album is accompanied by a self penned, limited edition book about a day in the life of his fictional alter ego… Bryan Moone. Listen to the album here

Bryan Moone’s DiscoPunk includes the brand–new single ‘All Dressed Up’ which delivers an 80’s dance vibe and a nod to Ian Dury. The album also features previously released singles ‘Everybody’s On Drugs’ which could sound at home on a Queens of the Stone Age album, album title track ‘Discopunk’ and ‘Looking After Number One‘, which gave fans an eagerly awaited preview of what to expect from the album. 

‘Bryan Moone’s DiscoPunk’ is Danny Goffey’s third album and was recorded mostly in the late summer of 2020. Once again teaming up with producer and long-time collaborator Simon Byrt, the album has a fresh and eclectic sound of its own, with lyrics ranging from dry humour and heartbreak, to downright absurdity. The first track on the album, the throbbing ‘Everybody’s On Drugs’, whilst ‘All Dressed Up’ 

Goffey says, “I spent a few months writing and recording demos on my own, so when we eventually managed to get into the studio to ‘work’, we felt really up for it and it made for a vibey atmosphere. The shackles came off and we got hip deep into making the tunes come alive, and before too long, we pretty much had the album recorded.”

“There are a few songs on there that I’m sure were influenced by being in lockdown… ‘All Dressed Up (With Nowhere to Go)’ is about you and your partner gradually slipping into a trippy world of madness in the house. Psychedelically connecting, crossdressing, playing the French horn and bongos, zooming around on high flying disks, not recognising yourself in the mirror… erm, etc etc. All the normal stuff.”

“There is quite a lot of anecdotal lyrical content on the album. For instance, there is a song called ‘Flea Market Woman’ which is about my wife’s love and obsession for a good flea market. Or ‘I Lost My Girl To A Fairground Worker’ which is an upsetting teenage tale, remembered from a visit to the local pikey fair. I guess it can all be considered fairly narcissistic…”

A limited number of Bryan Moone’s DiscoPunk LPs are available (only 1,000 available) in an exclusive ‘Disco Bag’. Accompanied by a special format fictional book written by Danny, that documents a minute by minute, day in the life of his alter ego character, Bryan Moone. The book details the inner thoughts and musings of a musician living with his erratic kids and his headstrong but beloved wife Em – Bryan’s day is a constant battle to try to write new music, but he keeps getting distracted by the hectic life around him, including a phone call from his daughter’s school after she commits an ‘extreme violation’, the real threat of being assaulted with a walking stick by an eighty year man in the pub, a severe bout of anxiety in the Co-op when trying to choose the right type of milk and it ends with a coffee related tragedy. Each chapter in the book has been brought to life and beautifully illustrated by Danny’s son Frank. Three 10″ X 8″ prints of Frank’s drawings will also be included in each Disco Bag. Order here
