Kleenex / LiLiPUT

LiLiPUT were a Swiss female post-punk/new wave band active from 1978 to 1983.

The group formed in 1978 under the name Kleenex, and soon made a name for themselves, until the threat of legal action by Kimberly-Clark in 1979 prompted a change of name to LiLiPUT (Kleenex being a proprietary brand of tampon in Switzerland). Their initial line-up consisted of Regula Sing (vocals), Marlene Marder (guitar), Klaudia Schiff (bass) and Lislot Ha (drums), and in the late 1970s the band recorded a number of successful singles prior to Sing's departure.

In 1982, after playing together for four years, LiLiPUT released their first self-titled full-length LP on Rough Trade.

In 1993, Swiss label Off Course Records released a 46-track double-disc CD collecting Kleenex/LiLiPUT's 1978-83 releases. In 2001 it was re-issued in the USA by the Kill Rock Stars label.

In 2010, Kill Rock Stars released a 24-track CD/DVD set "Live Recordings, TV-Clips, and Roadmovie." [Wikipedia]
