Story of the album here....





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.

Review of ZIPPA DEEDOO WHAT IS/WAS THAT/THIS? at the i94bar. (A site usually tuned into all things "Detroit/Birdman/Stooge-ish")
It’s self-described “classic rock” but don’t expect Journey or Van Halen to spring out of the speakers. “ZIPPA” is in-the-pocket, pop-rock played by a well-drilled ensemble. Drumming national treasure Clare Moore, consummate bassist Stu Thomas and jazzy guitarist Stuart Perera have been in more trenches together than the cast of “Hogan’s Heroes” and Graney’s respect for stylistic boundaries is on a par with Nancy Pelosi’s affection for Donald’s pipe-dream Wall. 

Dave Graney "Under The Grill with Mikey Cahill" at the Herald Sun.

Great review of ZIPPA DEEDOO WHAT IS/WAS THAT/THIS? in Your Music Radar by Brian Parker.

"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".
Grame Tressider

Great Review of the album in Music Trust by Noel Mengel.
"You can dip in almost anywhere into the vast Graney catalogue and find something deeper and more satisfying than the pop fizz of the day. But if you are starting out, this album and attending a Graney gig on an extensive Australian tour in the next few months is an excellent place to begin".
Noel mengel -

"Excellent writing on the album by Bob Osborne at Analogue Trash Radio".
Time for a new album from Dave Graney and Clare Moore
The opening slinky blues pop of “Baby I Wish I’d Been A Pop Star” marks another leap forward in the Dave Graney and Clare Moore canon. This time with the two Stu’s – Perera and Thomas – collectively as The MistLy – they have produced a classic album for the end of the second decade of the 21st century. An album of eight songs in thirteen versions takes elements of the previous album and run of digital singles and develops them into something recognisable, but also uniquely modern, and, of course “Graney”

"With ZIPPA DEEDOO WHAT IS/WAS THAT/THIS?, Graney set out to make a BAND album this time around and the MistLY revel in the creative freedom of tracks like Is That What You Did?, an eight minute-plus opus executed in the spirit of the great jam bands such as The Allman Brothers and Grateful Dead. Credited to all four band members, there’s a sense of space in the song which allows the band to explore some wonderful musical ideas, taking great advantage of the opportunity to lay down some tasteful, complementary licks.
Where’s My Buzz? is another stretch out exercise, a cruisy, yacht-rocker clicking in at over seven minutes in an orgy of guitar chords. A lot of chords, a lot of questions marks. Could Dave have been a Better Pop Star is another question he ponders in the album opener Baby I Wish I’d Been A Better Pop Star. (see video clip below) What is good pop star etiquette? Where’s the rule book?
Dig deep into Zippa Deedoo and you’ll find various rock ’n’ roll culture nods and winks. However, a more conspicuous homage is the track Ultrakeef. (see video clip below) A Honky Tonk Women-style cowbell beat propels the track along as Dave bullet-points the life of Stones’ legendary guitar hero Keith Richard. Your Masters, a track originally written and recorded in 1998 is re-recorded and mixed this time by Henry Wagons and features a warm 70s west coast flavoured guitar-jangle and includes an equally sweet, old fashioned, genuine guitar solo. Song Of Life contains the album’s title within its lyrics and is a luxurious, lounge-style groove, another track which the band are looking forward to riffing out live.
Eight new songs are offered on Zippa Deedoo, with five of them repeated in re-imagined form totalling 13 tracks in over an hour and seventeen minutes of classy, MistLY fare. Dave, Clare and band head out on the road over the coming weeks to give this album a workout on stage, where I can see some of these tracks taking on a life of their own

Great review of play mistLY for me from Bob Osborne in Salford

"There’s a fine mix of recent and back catalogue material here with a good nod towards Coral Snakes era tunes. The “audience” feel of the recordings does give a sense that you are actually there in the room enjoying the laid back ambience of the proceedings. The arrangements are both fascinating, effortless and rich giving a new life to a lot of the compositions. The sequencing of the material allows for a seamless listening experience, in some instances the transitions between the songs are little works of art in their own right with a feel of the tone poems of Miles Davis on “Get Up With It” in one instance.  The occasional witty inter-song commentary is worth the price of admission alone.

The highlight for me is a funky stroll through a complete reconstruction of “The Stars Baby, The Stars” which takes an already excellent song to a completely new place."


Literary focussed interview with dave graney from THE QUESTING BEAST - a site based in Wales.

Dave Graney and Clare Moore undertook a short tour of New Zealand recently. Whilst there, they did an interview and live session with Emma Smith at Radio NZ.


"DAVE GRANEY FEARFUL WIGGINGS (Fuse) *****If I've learnt anything in my years of writing about music it's that if you are going to do anything of worth in this tough game, you better have your own thing. Today's generic is easily replaced by tomorrow's. And yet you need to be flexible, to follow wherever the songs demand. In the case of this, only the second credited as a solo album among 30 or so Graney releases, it's a curious yet welcoming lane he walks you down, with acoustic guitars, not much percussion, vibes, smooth sounds. At the end of it you feel like you've awoken from a strange yet pleasant summer's dream. As shot by Luis Bunuel. It ranges from off-kilter reveries (A Woman Skinnies Up a Man, The Old Docklands Wheel) through to the softly seductive (How Can You Get Out of London) and the downright arch (Look Into My Shades, Everything Is Great In The Beginning.) This is music that is neither folk, nor blues, nor country, but it's all Graney, somewhere out to the left field beyond Lee Hazlewood's raised eyebrow. It's astringent on the tongue but sweetens in the telling. Noel Mengel - Brisbane Courier Mail

2014 solo album from Dave Graney , FEARFUL WIGGINGS. Begun early in 2013 and vocals recorded with Lisa Gerard (Dead Can Dance) at her studio in rural Victoria. Most instruments played by Dave Graney with Clare Moore on percussion, drums and vibes and also UK guitar genius Nick Harper on two songs. A single will be released in early 2014. Its quite pop. Begun with acoustic guitar tracks. A singer songwriter record in some ways.

Here is a page with the story of FEARFUL WIGGINGS

Story about FEARFUL WIGGINGS from Australian Musician Magazine

Tracks on FEARFUL WIGGINGS include A woman skinnies a man up, everything was legendary with robert, how can you get out of london? flower of the earth, country roads unwinding, I was there, look into my shades, I'm the stranger in town, I know you can't see me, everything is perfect in it's beginning, fearful wiggings, je est un autre, the old docklands wheel.

MC Bits- the third Dave Graney narrative show performed at the Butterfly Club. this time, just Dave Graney and Mark Fitzgibbon on piano.

Dave Graney presented the follow up to the acclaimed narrative show "Point Blank" at the Butterfly Club in Melbourne from 26th to 28th March 2009. This was again presented with Clare Moore on percussion and also Stu Thomas on fuzz bass and Stu Perera on guitar. It was called "Dave Graney- LIVE IN HELL!". A second season was undertaken in October 2009. Four nights at the Butterfly Club.
These narrative shows are the most intensely performed and drilled of shows. All the skills are used in this type of a performance. Autobiographical in nature yet mythological in tone. These ae events outside of normal albums and gigs . These are something else.

Stu Thomas has also recorded another album as a bass player in Kim Salmon and the Surrealists. Released on Low Transit Industries in 2010.

A recent show by the Moodists in Melbourne once again saw the aristocrats of the underworld come out to check out something real and scary. The band scared themselves . Here are some reports from this rare sighting

Mick Geyer, friend and former manager of Dave Graney 'n' the Coral Snakes, passed away on the 13th April 2004 and was buried in the town he was born and gew up in, Sunbury, Victoria. Dave Graney has written a brief story about Mick Geyer HERE.


The Moodists Compilatio ,"two fisted art" was out on the on the WMinc label . It is a wild two disc affair. 19 studio tracks fro the 1980 - 1986 life of the band and then 16 live tracks on the other disc. These live tracks were perhaps the main spur for putting the cd out. All unreleased and most never recorded, they capture the band in great sound in three distinct periods. These are in 1982 at the Sedition Festival in Sydney (Mick Turners first gig with the band), 1984 in Melbourne ( Mick Turners last gig with the band) and 1985 in London. All the tracks were selected by Steve Miller , David Graney, Clare Moore ,Chris Walsh and Mick Turner and the WMinc label is run by Steve Miller and Graham Lee. Not many reissues happen in such an in family/ in house manner. This compilation happened because we all wanted it to and felt that the music deserved another listen. Most had never been been released in Australia and all of it had never been released on CD at all.Available on itunes.

There has been much updating of the Moodists section of the site, with a new bio entry and several new pages of pictures and reviews from the 80's period. There are also some pages of peoples views of the times. People who were there commenting on the scene from todays perspective.

David Graney tries to explain where the Moodists songs were comin' from , here....
