Kleenex / LiLiPUT - First Songs
“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 hiccuped in three languages and made-up dadaistic slang. More than 20 years on, it still sounds fresh.” - Lisa Gidley
First Songs 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.
