Sad Clowns

Off into the Komedia last night to see The Tiger Lillies – spectacular – Martyn Jacques’ voice is better live than on record, and occasionally it’s sublime. Of course, at the same time they are ridiculous, offensive, sad, funny and all that – an excellent show. It’s great when people you’ve liked for a long time turn out to be really good live. Slightly disappointed that the set was more disease/wh*re/murder-centric and less religion. I would have like the lovely “Satan” or at least “Banging in the Nails” (people were calling for it), but with so many songs to choose from, can hardly complain. There were a good few songs I didn’t know from any of the records, and a creepy version of “My Funny Valentine“.
