Shockheaded Peter stars team up with electro pioneer


Einsturzende Neubauten bassist Alexander Hacke is heading off on tour with cult punk-burlesque trio The Tiger Lillies in musical cabaret Mountains Of Madness.

The German electronica pioneer and the Tiger Lillies - beloved by the likes of Marilyn Manson - based the show around the horror stories of HP Lovecraft, and the strange pairing are taking the project around Europe this month (May) after a successful run on the South Bank last year.

The Tiger Lillies' frontman Martyn Jacques says, "I wrote these songs and they came out in a sort of psychological way, about fear and the subconscious mind.

"Alexander wrote this very nice electronic soundscape for them, and it worked really well. It's a great show."
