ABOUT

"Welcome to the Carnival of Circus Freaks
The Bleeding Lady the blood from her leaks
Here is a place where you can buy crack
Lobotomised whores who you can slap."
The Freakshow presents the mutation of the Tiger Lillies 1999 cd 'Circus Songs'. New outcasts have their story presented for your listening pleasure. The Snake Woman, Three Legged Jake, Rosa with 3 Hearts, the Fat Lady, Deathless Man, Normo, Bleeding Lady, Matchstick Man, Flipper Boy, The Bleeding Lady, Ugly Joe, Hairy Man and the Sleeper all cavort for your entertainment. A carnival of oddities, but who is the freak, them or YOU? Music from the international hit circus show by The Tiger Lillies.

Released in 2010

I used to go see pantomimes when I was a boy and enjoy them. Now, a lot of modern celebrities can’t act, don’t have talent. They’re all 20 times more famous than anyone who actually does have talent. That’s a reflection of the crap society in which we live. It’s a reaction against that
— Martyn Jacques
