What you're about to read is a collection of pointers to some of the music I've discovered on the iTunes Music Store, music I like enough that I want to share it. If you're an iPod owner and an iTunes fan (and if you aren't, what are you doing here?), maybe you'll find something new. Click on any of the CD covers to bounce over to the store and sample a few tracks. And then maybe stop by my other blog for a few well chosen words (and maybe a random snark or two).RSS feed

Punch and Judy / Tiger Lillies
I was on a trip to London a couple of years ago when I discovered the wonder that is The Tiger Lillies. My manager suggested we go to see Shockheaded Peter, a musical based on a classic children's book. Well, they tell me it's a classic; I'd never heard of it. And once the play began I was grateful. This is truly strange stuff that would have given me nightmares for weeks! The Tiger Lillies provided the music, which was memorable for its irony, its humor, its macabre tone and a certain over-the-topness of its performance. Quite a wonderful evening, although not one I'd necessarily recommend for the impressionable child.

Sadly, Shockheaded Peter hasn't yet made an appearance on the iTMS. But there are plenty of other examples of the Lillies' unique style. Sick and twisted stuff, not that there's anything wrong with that.
