dave graney - "night of the wolverine demos/early 90s songwriter demos " - digital only release 2015





Seven songs recorded in 1991 on a 4 track cassette that eventually ended up on the album, Night Of The Wolverine, which was recorded in a weekend late in 1992.
The other songs were recorded around the same time. Dave Graney felt hollowed out after the failure to geet the album I Was The Hunter and I Was The Prey out. (Recorded in London with the original Coral Snakes in 1990. It eventually came out in 1992 on Fire Records in the UK).
The idea of gathering another head of steam or bunch of songs as strong as that seemed impossible and Dave thought his future lay in being a songwriter for other artists.The last four of these songs were intended to be sung by a female. "I walked with a Saint" and "I'm gonna live my life" which was eventually covered by Lisa Miller.
"Somewhere in the world" was recorded by Tex Perkins for his debut solo album, "Far be it from me" in 1996.
