The Tiger Lillies
Cult London 3 piece The Tiger Lillies play a twisted fusion of pre-war Berlin cabaret and avant garde music hall in deranged anarchic gypsy style...with such a unique sound, audiences around the world are both delighted and shocked by their darkly comedic and deranged songs covering controversial subjects such as blasphemy and bestiality, rape, murder, lowlifes and whores with unashamed theatrics and wit.

The Trio are fronted by singer Martyn Jacques who trained himself as an opera singer with a castrati style voice of heartbreaking beauty, whilst living alone above a strip joint in Soho for seven years. Accompanied by drummer Adrian Huge, whose appearance was described by David Byrne as James Joyce on drums, and who must doubtlessly be one if not the most famous drummer to frequently exchange his drumsticks in favour of rubber chickens and toy babies, and double bass / musical saw player Adrian Stout. Jacques plays accordion as he sings savage and passionate songs about the darkest
side of human nature, his voice soaring and growling like a man possessed.
