S.E. Casey D.E.W says some horrible, vile things, but this is not his talent. Saying horrible, vile things, yet somehow always being on the listener's side, is his talent. More absurdist than his great industrial-cabaret albums " A House for the Dead" and "I Have Forgotten...", he again displays his lyrical prowess. With a minimum of words and accompaniment, he can take a banal Richard Nixon monologue, and contextualize it into a gut wrenching narrative. Favorite track: The Official Picnic Song.

about

FROM THE CATALOG DESCRIPTION:
An undisputed yet controversial cult icon for over 2 decades, David E. Williams continues to expand the boundaries of dark cabaret and neofolk in ways that perpetually leave him as the ultimate outsider of both genres.
As always, his 6th full length release documents the violent dread of every moment for a troubadour narrator on the nexus of existential angst and cultural despair.
The new music ranges from finger-snapping ditties to chamber synthpop to his ever popular piano-driven art songs, with lead vocals by himself and other luminaries such as Andrew King, Lloyd James (Naevus) and Jane Elizabeth (Tesco USA).
Other participants include Jerome Deppe, David Talento, Adrina Hansen, Ken Brune and Wendy Mittelstadt.

ORIGINALLY RELEASED AS CD DIGIPACK ON Old Europa Cafe Records
