Legendary Swiss all girl band LiLiPUT (first named Kleenex) is one of those rare punk groups that managed to make timeless songs, the kind that keep sounding new and fresh, with most of the original exuberance and excitement still intact.
While Kleenex had started as a relatively typical art-punk band, after the forced name-change (a copyright issue) the girls started to experiment more while at the same time managing to find a more pop-oriented sound.
LiLiPUT turned out to be immensely influential on the riot grrrl movement 10 years later, and now still sounds more relevant than most of those followers. Significant music, hypnotic and fun!
A compilation of the complete works of Kleenex/LiLiPUT (46 songs) is available on Kill Rock Stars.
