  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    Jewel case cd by Dave Graney. A solo album. Recordings made with Clare Moore, Lisa Gerrard, Nick Harper. 13 songs. 3 extra tracks added to digital version August 2014.
    Fearful Wiggings. The title comes from a 1920s book of French stories.. I came across a new word and looked up in the glossary and the meaning was puts as “fearful wiggings’. I took it to mean “great anxiety”.
    Fearful wiggings is a lyrically freewheeling kind of album. Elemental figures and scenes. Sex, myth, dream cities, shadows, invisibility (a recurring theme in my songs) and the very personal title track. Musically, it’s pretty simple and stark but every song could come from it’s own album. Frenchie (“je est un autre” and “flower of the earth” ) and Australian (“country roads, unwinding”). A best of from the future.

about

There was a conversation with my cousin Garry, who’s a stock and station agent in South East Sth Australia. He often says funny things. He was describing how a friend behaved when a woman was around. “She skinnied him up…” The music is a kind of boogie that I’d been goofing off on for years. No bass. I saw a documentary about the Californian country singer Buck Owens and he said he hardly used any bass on his trademark “Bakersfield sound” country records so as to give more room for the vocals. I love the sound of 60s country and where the voice sits, way out front, so that was a big thing in my approach to the whole album.

lyrics

a woman skinnies up a man
when he sees he’s in her eye
in his eye she looks at him’
he pulls in his gut
straightens his back
combs his hair
tightens up his game
a woman skinnies up a man
before, he was all
“ why would you give someone half your tucker
to get the other half cooked?”
what?
now he’s ramrod straight and combin’ his hair
and shaving
a woman skinnies a man up
