  • 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

Fearful Wiggings
Nick Harper played guitar on this song. He’s a UK singer and player. Son Of Roy harper. I’d been listening to all this UK folk and he grew up totally IN that world. He got in touch once because he liked some of my songs and even played one at his gigs. He asked me to sing a song on his 2013 album , “Riven”. In return , I asked him to play on a couple of mine. An amazing guitarist. I’ve never met him in the flesh. Hopefully some time this year. The lyrics of this song are very personal. It was originally called “the ballad of Graney and Moore”. That was either a bit too high flown or a bit too rootsy or earthy.

lyrics

fearful wiggings

here’s to the only one I know
the only one who knows me
her name is Clare - with no I
she’s here to chew gum and kick ass
all the shit I’ve written and you counted me in
like that song by Waylon - ain’t it true!
speedin’ our young lives away
you lookin’ at the back side o’ me
ain’t it true!
why such a bittersweet air from the
fresh prince of hilair?
haven’t you lived?
I rode my scooter of the train - the Bluebird
into the city traffic
it was like a situation comedy
I drank wine from your shoe
we kissed in the seaview
hey ain’t we met some dopes
ain’t we been silly too!
if nows not the time for tears
dunno when that is
we watched tv - we knew tv
always lived outside
had the door open wide
as above so below thats how we played it
hey this emotional stuff
peope eat it up
its sweet - can’t be good for us
you wrangled me - hey!
not in front of the men - jane!
didn’t one of us think to say
“ hey get the door will ya!”
