Radio interview by Dave Graney focussing on FEARFUL WIGGINGS.
"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...
Dave Graney and Clare Moore undertook a short tour of New Zealand recently.
Whilst there, they did an interview and live session with Emma Smith
at Radio NZ.
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”.
