The Tiger Lillies are pioneers of the post-punk era. In addition to a series of new songs, they look back on their earliest recordings. Martyn Jacques draws his inspiration for his twisted and hilarious compositions from the dark side of life.

The darkness also brings the light in this performance. The Tiger Lillies turn their gaze to the starry night sky, striking moments of beauty in the tenderness of Martyn's falsetto, fragile and sad, as he sings of the intense pain of the characters who populate his songs.

“Martyn Jacques is the charismatic centerpiece. He drags himself from his piano to his accordion with the weight of the world's suffering on his shoulders – and yet his voice is like a warm waterfall. Perfect in execution. Phenomenal.''
