  • 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

I’m the Stranger in Town
Sadly, I have realized that this is how I have lived my life. As if I was just passing through – or if I was set to leave at any moment. Like the songs says “silly – I know”
The music is a bit of a groove I’d been mucking around on for ages. Didn’t want it to sound too straight and “bluesy” so I asked Clare to play it half time as if it was a hip hop track,. Just one mic on the drums. There’s cicadas on it. I needed a lonely sound and walked onto my deck with a ZOOM and took them from my own yard. Summer sounds.

lyrics

I’m the stranger in town
silly I know
that was how I looked when I left the hospital
I walk across the room to somewhere I don’t wanna go
with my cloak and dagger look
I don’t belong
I don’t feel right after all these years
I’m hangin’ back and listening
I rarely speak
I’m the stranger in town
stupid - I know
I should’ve grown up
I did - but wrong
I don’t wanna separate
I’d rather disppear into the crowd
is that weird?
I’m the stranger in town
people are used to me now
“ that’s Dave” they say
“ the stranger in town -
still” - smirk
with my hat and tall shoes
I don’t belong
