  • 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

Country Roads, unwinding
Aside from London, I am obsessed with country roads and down beat country towns. They’re disappearing, really. Just villages with old people and a few antiques shops. I know, I do a lot of driving. Clare plays the vibes on this track. it was finished very early in the piece. Just fell into a sweet spot pretty easily.

lyrics

country roads, unwinding
down I go
my father came this way - my mother too
Max Harris’ heroic cry
“ on throwin a copy of the New
Statesman from the window
while driving along the Coorong”
comes to mind
country roads, unwinding
staring out the window
drivin into life - beatin back the miles
into the past again
into the future again
like before
goin’ up - goin’ down
foward - back
kangaroo tails by the side of the road
stickin’ up through the saltbush
father whatsisnames tree
I ain’t no farmer
unwinding country roads - harnessed
seat belted
calendar holding a life tight
dates and times
places to be
lookin out the window
winding
rewinding
shootin’ off into the sky
