"This is your Guernica, your Imagine, your XYGTHO Phase 3, your Raging Bull. Everything you have created before has culminated in this true masterpiece of recorded music. Life, Death, Pathos, Humour, Groove and above all Aplomb = Zippa Dee Do what is-was that-this? Congratulations to you, Clare and the mistLY and thank you for an album that will be on regular rotation in my shack for the remainder of my days".

“Rock Music does not usually accommodate the likes of Dave Graney. Few Australian performers have been as resilient, and few have presented as many ideas in song form. ….Graneys tactic is to bring a highly developed context to his audience – his “velvet fog”, his “lurid yellow mist” – in opposition to the sentimentality of “rock’s wasteland of howling dopes”
Mark Gomes… Australian Book Review
2018 Memoir through Affirm press
"Perhaps the distinguishing feature of Graney's music in comparison to the aforementioned groups is a distinct, if relative, lack of darkness and alienated angst. Graney, rather (particularly in the post-Moodist period), has created a niche that is absolutely unique. Free from any trace of the confessional, he creates vignettes that range from absurdist to deeply moving — often both — mingling wry social observation with a humor that perfectly threatens to stray, but never finally crosses the line, into novelty. One aspect of Graney's distinctness — and distinction — is the very persona-ness of his persona (beginning with costume; from safari suits to Tom of Finland leathers, deadly serious camp is a trademark). Unlike so many other front men, Graney isn't performing faux-transgressively as the typical dysfunctional rock star, drug-addled, sexually voracious, yet constantly heartbroken — but rather transgresses that same transgression through the obviously conscious adoption of a kitsch that is tongue-in-cheek, but wherein the illusion nonetheless remains firmly unbroken. It's an act that is postmodern but never pretentious, both distancing and deeply endearing, especially when combined with his obvious lyrical smarts".Rowan Savage- TINY MIXTAPES (Online US mag)
ZIPPA DEEDOO WHAT IS/WAS THAT/THIS?
ZIPPA DEEDOO WHAT IS/WAS THAT/THIS? (The title comes from the chorus of “Song Of Life” ) is a classic rock’n’roll album. Classic if you lived through what has become known as ”the classic rock era” as it rolled out new and even broke onto the beachhead and morphed into punk. That’s the direction Dave Graney and Clare Moore have always been coming from. They have spent their lives schooled by and immersed in rock ‘n’ roll culture. They dived in deep and kept swimming. From the Moodists through the Coral Snakes /White Buffaloes to the mistLY
This is an album with their band, Dave Graney and the mistLY. Stuart Perera has played guitar with them since 1998 and Stu Thomas on bass since 2004.
