The Tiger Lillies are a cult British musical trio formed in 1989. Often described as the forefathers of Brechtian Punk Cabaret the Tiger Lillies are well known for their unique sound and style which merges the macabre magic of pre-war Berlin with the savage edge of punk.
It was really really reeeally awesome (awesome like cool and awesome like horrendous). To be honest, I’ve never been a fan of the Tiger Lillies. Yes, I knew about the band, but it’s not my music at all. I love something more “cheerful” music, something “over loud”.
But I want to be honest to the end- it was one of the best shows in Israel in 2013. From the first to the last song, Martyn Jacques held the listener’s ears and didn’t allow distractions.
Before the Tiger Lillies has performed KIV Orchestra- strange mix-band (Vialka from France and Kruzenstern & Parohod from Israel).
