Performing at Miami Light Project (Jan 24 - Jan 25)
The Criminal Castrati's anarchic brechtian blues trio, The Tiger Lillies, are an extraordinary three piece band creating music that is a startling mixture of opera, gypsy song and left bank Paris. Fronted by singer Martyn Jacques who trained himself as an opera singer with a castrati style voice of heartbreaking beauty whilst living alone above a strip joint in Soho for seven years, and accompanied by drummer Adrian Huge and double bass player Adrian Stout, The Tiger Lillies sing savage and passionate songs about prostitutes, drug addicts and losers, their voices soaring and growling like men possessed.
