ZIPPA DEEDOO WHAT IS/WAS THAT/THIS?
"* Dave Graney is one of Australia’s most iconoclastic contemporary music artists. He works outside the mainstream and inhabits that region somewhere between the spotlight and obscurity, consistently producing a prolific stream of high quality work that sometimes sneaks under the guard of the gatekeepers and becomes briefly visible to the masses". Andrew Watt – online interview and review
"This is described as a “rock and roll” album and in that it reflects music from the late 60s/early 70s (pre-punk if you will) that is a reasonable description but i’d say it goes beyond that basic description as there are modern elements, nods to jazz, the use of current technique, and of course the unique Graney/Moore stylings all present. It adds to and enhances a formidable body of work.
“Graney has always been a raconteur – with equal doses of smooth, smug and wit. They say rock ‘n’ roll is a musical genre on the decline – but with this unusually titled album Graney has raised the rock ‘n’ roll flag and wears his love for the genre on his sleeve, meshed with some blues and psychedelia.
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.

Review of ZIPPA DEEDOO WHAT IS/WAS THAT/THIS? at the i94bar. (A site usually tuned into all things "Detroit/Birdman/Stooge-ish")
"Graney remains a sonic explorer, boldly going where no other Australian artist dares. Younger artists would kill to have the energy that’s on display here".
"The Adelaide punk-scene dandy Dave Graney finally made it big at home in the 1990s, after years of celebrated obscurity. Today, acclaimed country-rock albums and lounge-music experiments behind him, he pretty much does as he pleases. Graney's 22nd album finds him toasting seductively, Serge Gainsbourg-style, over pressure-cooked rhythm tracks from his long-term collaborator, Clare Moore, spiced with Stu Perera’s treacly blaxploitation guitar. “Sell out while you can,” advises Graney, satirically, on Sellout!. “Now we live in simpler times, and to not take the money and run is the biggest crime of all.”
