Regular price $ 25.00 $ 0.00
"Legendary Swiss punk band from the late 70s. 'You can’t dispute Liliput’s status as pioneers of feminist art-punk. Along with fellow travelers like the Slits and the Raincoats, this (mostly) female Swiss group took advantage of punk’s anything-goes attitude and created jittery, spirited pop that was both in step with the times and completely singular.

The early material is a riot of exuberant energy, taking stylistic cues from peers like Gang of Four and Wire— propulsive bass, skittering pop rhythms, slashing guitars— and adding distinctive overlapping vocal patterns, which are sung, shrieked, and hiccupped in three languages and made-up dadaistic slang. More than 20 years on, it still sounds fresh.' – Lisa Gidley. First Songs is a double gatefold LP that combines all the pre-1982 material, all 3 Kleenex singles, the first 2 Liliput 7'’s and all the originally unreleased material prior to Liliput’s debut LP. Liner notes by Greil Marcus."  " Kleenex/LiLiPUT was originally released by Off Course Records and compiles the band's entire recorded output, from their first recordings under the name Kleenex to their later material after changing their name to LiLiPUT."
