The Tiger Lillies - "Births, Marriages & Deaths (1994)"
The Tiger Lillies - Births Marriages and Deaths

The Tiger Lillies are a three piece band from London. They consist of Martyn Jacques (vocals, accordion, trained as an opera singer with a castrati style voice) Adrian Huge (drums) and Adrian Stout (double bass). Jacques' distinctive poetry and voice (which, evidently, owes a lot to Klaus Nomi and the Monty Pythons, IMHO) and the acoustic - cabaret style rhythm section manage to create a unique atmosphere of a decadent yet sensitive Lautrec environment (and I am talking about the environment Lautrec lived). They have a serious cult following in London and as well as other countries (Czech republic, Greece etc).

Births, Marriages & Deaths is the band's first album which I will post in 2 parts.
