  9. The Tiger Lillies - The Rime of the Ancient Mariner (2012)

    The Independent has described The Tiger Lillies as “a provocative and avant-garde three-piece band that combines cabaret, vaudeville, music-hall and street theatre”.

    Tim Arthur of Time Out has given a more imaginative description: “Imagine Kurt Weill conjuring up images of prewar Berlin while a falsetto vocalist screams, squeaks and squawks his way through every number like some rambling madman, and you’ve got the picture”.

    Notorious for singing controversial songs involving bestiality, prostitution, blasphemy and all other vice imaginable, The Tiger Lillies are undoubtedly not for the easily offended.

    Their musical style is mainly influenced by Bertolt Brecht and Kurt Weill’s masterpiece The Threepenny Opera and pre-war Berlin cabaret but other influences such as gypsy and circus music, French chanson and British music hall tunes are also evident…

    SCHOOL FOR SAILORS, NAVAL TRAINING STATION: Newport, Rhode Island. Instead of working at a blackboard with chalk, these pupils solve their problems on a wooden rail with rope.
