How can you get out of London?

  • 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

How can you get out of London?
The second line is “how can you get London out?” We lived there for five years and had to leave suddenly. A kind of a “what if?” shadow life runs through my mind occasionally . “What if we’d stayed there?” I love to read books about London. It’s in my mind a lot. The music is a kind of Latin groove, again. Clares voice has no reverb. Dry and straight like those British folk records I’ve been immersed in for years.

lyrics

how can you get out of London?
how can you get London out?once its in you
there’s no escape, I tell ya
imagine if you were born there?
if you didn’t come to it from the outside
if you’d never heard of it
if you were of it
how can you get out of London?
Sir Walter Raleigh
Dr Alimantado
all the monuments and towers
frenzy
blowup
the prisoner
running for a bus
you pass into it too
it swallows you whole - like a giant whale
how can you get out of London?
how can you get London out?
a life interrupted
you could’ve slotted in there
how can you get back on?
the wheel has kept turning
