Kleenex/LiLiPUT 'First Songs' 2LP OUT NOW!!!

December 13, 2016

“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

Kill Rock Stars is excited to announce the December 9th, 2016 release of First Songs, a 2LP set of recordings from the legendary punk bands Kleenex and LiLiPUT. 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.

First Songs is a vinyl only release and will be available in stores now.
