‘Martyn Jacques is a charismatic focus. Trudging between his piano and accordion like a man weighed down by supernatural dread – yet his voice is a molten cascade. The execution is impeccable throughout. Phenomenal.’

Guardian

‘In an ideal world, The Tiger Lillies would represent Britain in the Eurovision Song Contest.’
