Live in Prague DVD
Probably more than any other city Prague holds a special place in my heart.
We started to go there when there were no tourists. Just after the velvet
revolution. It still had the austere feeling of Communism, there were few
fancy restaurants or hotels. The only foreigners were artists, alcoholics, junkies.
It was a great time and we played in every bar and club that would have us.
There were many and we built quite a following.
We were managed by Ben Anderson, a funny painter who actually did a picture
of some Tiger Lillie flowers which were on my wall in London, and inspired
the name. He embraced the town and learnt the language and for us arranged
tours all over the country.
We also played in squats, sometimes to a thousand people, which was quite an
experience for a band used to playing to 50 to 100 people in bars. We drank
enormous quantities of Czech beer and Becherovka and Czech girls are beautiful...
It’s great that we continue to visit the town with the help of the Archa theatre.
I can definitely say it was one of the best times of my life...

With over 2 Hours of material, the new DVD documentary 'Tiger Lillies in Prague' has a bumper crop of unseen footage of the band playing shows in the Czech Republic in the 1990's. This is combined with songs from the new show 'Here I am Human' at the Divadlo Archa in 2010 and a full concert shot in HD from 2009. There is an interview with the band on its long relationship with Prague after the Velvet Revolution and how the Czech lands influenced their music.
The DVD has extras of the band playing shows in the legendary Borat Club in Prague, the Banana Club in Zatek and Divadlo Archa.
The DVD comes in a limited edition hand printed bag. These bags are placed in Prague parks for the collection of dog faeces, they feature a charming image of a hound on the toilet. The dvd tray is the cardboard scooper that is used to collect the mess. This packaging is not to be repeated on future runs of the dvd so get one while you can.
