  Punch and Judy CD released

Recorded in Hamburg May 2004

Punch,

the archetypal English clown figure, is unscrupulous, anarchistic and

malevolent in all that he does, wittily and jovially murdering anyone

who gets in his way ? whether it be his own wife, the policeman, the

doctor, the hangman or even the devil himself.

Played

once upon a time in the streets of Old England as a macabre and

?undivine? comedy, the story is retold here in the form of a dark

operetta: Punch?s triumphant marriage to Judy, the birth of his child,

his beautiful murders and his own magnificent death. It seems as if

Punch has been waiting all this time for the Tiger Lillies to come

along in order to perform his perfidy to perfection.
