The Tiger Lillies ? Punch and Judy

The Pod in association with The Tiger Lillies

Introducing the three-piece band The Tiger Lillies: The nutty

professor with the wacky facial hair on drums; the bassist?s chirpy

character who looks suspiciously like a flasher; and on vocals, piano

and accordion, the spectacular Sad Clown! To call these guys odd is an

understatement, to call them brilliant, isn?t. Their enchanting Baltic

melodies and deep, soothing blues draw you, slithering, into their

playful and sordid and hateful world. A world where the story of Punch

is told, a twisted story of a boy who?s mum was institutionalised, who

was beaten by his wife until he murdered her and his baby son and who

went on to confront the depths of his madness and discover pure evil.

Both a charming and a chilling tale.
