LOUD! FAST! PHILLY! Episode 59: David E. Williams

Guest interviewer Greg Trout interviews David E. Williams. Since 1989 David has been a local music force that defies categorization. Equal parts singer/songwriter, crooner, mage, and prankster, his macabre tales and tunes comment on the human condition and the great wrong place in which we live. Mixing confessional and storytelling song styles, there is no one like David E. Williams. For over an hour Trout and David discuss David’s career, his place in Philadelphia, his time a purveyor of psychotronic literature as owner of Germ Bookstore, and his tastes, history, and obsessions. Supertramp gets mentions more than once.
