  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    Williams’ 5th full length release (from Disques de Lapin, 2009) is largely inspired by the grief and futility following the illness and death of his girlfriend. Musically, it veers from somber piano ballads to electronic dirges to at least one grandiose epic with virtuoso live drums, odd time signatures and dissonant tone clusters (while still remaining catchy!). And... it's the CD home of his Idi Amin song!

    “… as sad and as brutally real as it is, this is the David E. Williams release to own…” - Tony Dickie, Compulsion

    “It may have been born out of great loss but for those who hear it, Every Missing Duck Is A Duck Missed certainly offers a great number of rewards, and is without doubt David’s finest moment to date…” - Lee Powell, Judas Kiss

    “There is no one else alive who could turn the subject of leukaemia into a catchy two minute pop song, that he does this successfully not just once, but again and again, is testament to his abilities and the quality of his creative vision. No one else could have done this.” – Andrew King, Heathen Harvest
