Danny Goffey, Co-songwriter and founding member of British band Supergrass, releases new single ‘Looking After Number One’ today — the latest track from his upcoming album Bryan Moone’s Discopunk out 21st October via Distiller. The album will be accompanied by a self-penned, limited edition book about a day in the life of his fictional alter ego… Bryan Moone.
‘Looking Out For Number One’ oozes with charm from start to finish. With a guest appearance from Ed Harcourt providing extra guitar riffs and backing vocals, the track is an ode to the pressures of the life of a family man. Although the lyrics are a more light-hearted take on modern living, they do reflect on the responsibilities that come with daily life.
Speaking on the new single, Goffey said: “This song is about the amount of work it takes to keep a family of four kids happy. Then there’s the partner, grandparents, two dogs and the pressure of erratic work schedules. There’s just no bloody time left to tend to yourself! I don’t really know why I wrote a song about that... maybe I had to get it out of my head, instead of going to see a shrink? I guess a lot of my songs are driven by anxieties like this.”

Danny has also just been announced to support Reverend & The Makers’ on their ‘Heatwave in the Cold North’ Tour alongside The Ramona Flowers in February 2023. With dates across the UK, including Brighton Concorde, Liverpool O2 Academy, Birmingham O2 Academy, Bristol O2 Academy, London Islington Assembly Hall, Glasgow St Lukes, Manchester Academy, Sheffield O2 Academy and more, the tour will be the first time Danny performs his new tracks live.
A limited number of Bryan Moone’s DiscoPunk LPs will be available in an exclusive (only 1,000 available) ‘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. Preorder here.
