TIGER LILLIES - KRONOS QUARTET - The Gorey End Album
London based cultband The Tiger Lillies together with the Kronos Quartet have recorded The Gorey End project , which will be released on EMI Classics in May 2003. The songs are based on lyrics by Edward Gorey. Tiger Lillies' singer Martyn Jacques tells the following about Gorey:
While on tour I was told I had received a funny letter from someone called Edward Gorey and he tought I was the "cat's pygamas". He said he had a lot of unpublished work and in due course he sent it to me in a large cardboard box . It was with a great sense of honour I set about turning this work into the collection of 13 songs you have before you. He also sent me a stone in a saucer saying if stared at for long enough it would turn into a frog. Sadly I never got to meet him , he died just before I was due to fly out for a visit but I hope I have captured something of his wonderful and unique vision of the world. I'm still staring at the stone .
musicas.de coordinated the recording and transfered the deal to EMI International. The world premiere of The Gorey End will be on May 15th, 16th & 17th at the Lyric Theatre in London.
The only presentation of The Gorey End in Germany will take place at the Deutsche Schauspielhaus in Hamburg on May 19th with the Tiger Lillies & Kronos Quartet. In co-operation with Karsten Jahnke Konzertdirektion.
