KLEENEX / LILIPUT - First Songs Double LP Collection

Water Wing Records / Kill Rock Stars

$29.99 CAD
First Songs' combines all the pre-1982 recordings from this legendary Swiss art-punk band (in both incarnations) from the late '70s. All three Kleenex singles, the first two Liliput 7-inches and all the at the time unissued material, dating from before Liliput's debut-LP. All this material has been previously released by Kill Rock Stars and Mississippi Records.

“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
