    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. Neither attended higher education and 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.

    Out of Melbourne, Australia. Album number 33 (approx.) from Graney and Moore

    From the homage to the silhouette of the baddest droog that ever threw shade on both Life, Death and breakfast – ULTRAKEEF, to the “sou’westing ballroom jam” that is the eight minute plus “Is That What You Did?” through the soft fusion chordal folding trick that is “Where’s My Buzz?” through the attitude that speaks truth to all on the solo “You’re All Wrong” and the badass female geist of “Gloria Grahame”, it’s an album steeped in lore, myth and musical language as much as lyric power. Graney’s voice is up in the mix and the guitars, drums and bass have real tension, energy and bounce. Plenty of space, too.
    There are eight songs done thirteen ways. Trembling blues, sliding guitar guitars and infinite grooves. Clean sounds and yacht rock nods. There is wise blood flowing through “Song Of Life” and “Your Masters”. (The latter being a re-recording of a song originally realized in 1998 with the Dave Graney Show). There are many alternate takes and versions.
    Eight songs thirteen ways.
    What Is that?
    What Was This?
    The album begins with the post heist-gone-wrong confessional “Baby I Wish I’d Been A Better Pop Star”. A song that’s never been written before.

baby I wish I’d been a better popstar wish I’d known when it started/I would’ve gone without more/would’ve stayed inside I would’ve stayed in shape I could’ve been even more of a bastard/I could’ve really settled some scores stayed low/kept my head down/picked my moments/kept my powder dry and then BAM! baby I wish I’d been a better popstar cleaner! I was so messy/nothin’ but trouble I should’ve showed up/had my act together/showed some respect for the room baby I wish I’d been a better popstar I could be dead by now/it’d be all over/you could be on your fourth or fifth I blew it baby! I screwed up!when it was time to shine I wasn’t shiny I should’ve stayed on message/I shoulda repeat myself/repeat I shoulda known it was on! baby I wish I’d been a better popstar
