  • 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

Everything was legendary with Robert
A mutated Bo Diddley beat with acoustic and electric guitars and bass xylophone. This is the single. The music sounded like a tv theme tune to me, which is to say , I thought it was high quality and really catchy. It’s like a Ray Davies type of a song as far as the lyrics go.

lyrics

everything was legendary with Robert
everything was legendary with Robert
he had reverberation happening
inside, at least
early reflections, oh yeah
this was the beginning of a new age
it was good when he talked to you
he really talked to you
he was always on
in the moment
everything was legendary with Robert
someday people would write about this
or that
his riveting self consciousness drew you in
a crowd gathered to see what he was lookin at
talkin’ about
everything was legendary with Robert
it wasn’t him or the times
it was just the angle he lucked into
the attitude
the window that came between him and the world
framed him in the world
forever
everything was legendary with Robert
