Martyn Jacques

Martyn Jacques is the founder of The Tiger Lillies and spent much of his formative years training his voice while living in the heart of London's Soho. His songs describe in lurid detail pimps, prostitutes, drug addicts, losers and other unsavoury characters. He is musical director for Shockheaded Peter and his adaptation of the text is now published as a book, The Ultimate Shockheaded Peter.

He once placed the severed head of a pig, with a Marlboro stick in its nose, on an alter of a church in Wales and had to be spirited out of the village in the dead of night for fear of an angry lynch mob. The Bishop of Wales was then called in to reconsecrate the church.
