FEARFUL WIGGINGS is sold out as a Compact Disc, digital album available at Bandcamp.
2020 reflection. A watershed album in some ways. The second album credited as a solo set, though once again Clare Moore is very present. Was wonderfully inspiring to work briefly with Lisa Gerrard. Donna McCrae and Michael Vale made a fantastic clip for us. UK guitar master Nick Drake played some acoustic on it. Was a great moment of other artists reaching out to us to be involved.
Fave lyric ...."why such a bittersweet air from the
Radio interview by Dave Graney focussing on FEARFUL WIGGINGS.
Story about FEARFUL WIGGINGS from Australian Musician Magazine
DAVE GRANEY ‘FEARFUL WIGGINGS’ TRACK BY TRACK
Everything was legendary with Robert
How can you get out of London?
Country roads, unwinding
Stranger In Town
I know you can't see me
Everything is perfect in it's beginning
"DAVE GRANEY FEARFUL WIGGINGS (Cockaigne) *****If I've learnt anything in my years of writing about music it's that if you are going to do anything of worth in this tough game, you better have your own thing. Today's generic is easily replaced by tomorrow's. And yet you need to be flexible, to follow wherever the songs demand. In the case of this, only the second credited as a solo album among 30 or so Graney releases, it's a curious yet welcoming lane he walks you down, with acoustic guitars, not much percussion, vibes, smooth sounds. At the end of it you feel like you've awoken from a strange yet pleasant summer's dream. As shot by Luis Bunuel. It ranges from off-kilter reveries (A Woman Skinnies Up a Man, The Old Docklands Wheel) through to the softly seductive (How Can You Get Out of London) and the downright arch (Look Into My Shades, Everything Is Great In The Beginning.) This is music that is neither folk, nor blues, nor country, but it's all Graney, somewhere out to the left field beyond Lee Hazlewood's raised eyebrow. It's astringent on the tongue but sweetens in the telling. Noel Mengel - Brisbane Courier Mail
Fearful Wiggings is
the 2014 album from Dave Graney. its a solo album though longtime
collaborator Clare Moore was very much involved in the recording , writing
and arranging of many tracks. It follows the art pop-rock masterwork
of 2012 you've been in my mind which was a total mistLY album.
(a band recording). Here's Dave talking of the album...
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”.
Then a similar contact- also from a pure musical direction – happened
when UK guitarist and songwriter Nick Harper contacted
me to sing on one of his songs. I asked him to play on two of mine. He
comes from folk rock
royalty. His father is Roy Harper, noted player and subject of a tribute
from Led Zeppelin. (“Hats off to Harper”)
All songs written by Dave Graney
