Dave Graney & the MistLY return with their brand new album, ZIPPA DEEDOO WHAT IS/WAS THAT/THIS? –already 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.
Featuring Stuart Perera who has played guitar with them since 1998 and Stu Thomas on bass since 2004 this is album number 33 (approx.) from Graney and Moore. From the homage to the baddest droog that ever threw shade on both Life, Death and breakfast – ULTRAKEEF, to the “sou’westing ballroom jam” that is the 8 minute + Is That What You Did? through the soft fusion chordal folding trick that is Where’s My Buzz? 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.
Eight songs done thirteen ways.
