thumb|right|The band after a concert The Tiger Lillies are an obscure cult three-piece band, based in London.
Formed in 1989, they have toured world-wide and won acclaim with their opera Shockheaded Peter.
Their surreal style has been described as darkly humorous, Brechtian, gypsy cabaret. They are also notorious for singing controversial songs involving bestiality, prostitution and blasphemy, shocking unsuspecting audiences. In 1999 their work was featured in the film Plunkett & Macleane.
The Tiger Lillies were nominated for a Grammy award for their 2003 album The Gorey End, which was a collaboration of sorts with the writer/illustrator Edward Gorey and the Kronos Quartet.
