Music you can sink your teeth into
In one of the seedier sections of Ukuleletown, there’s a small café next to a brothel. The café features music by a fearless, fearsome band called The Tigerlillies. Martyn Jacques, who fronts the band, occasionally is seen playing a resonator ukulele.
If you haven’t heard them yet, go get one of their many albums. They will make your ears vibrate and your heart pump faster. Their live act is magnificently theatrical and twisted…but very musical. Adrian, the bass player, even plays musical saw on a few songs.
