    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.

    Style
    LiLiPUT's exuberant sound combined spirited thrashy post-punk with unconventional vocals and lyrics, both in English and German. Their music featured husky or squealing female vocals, ramshackle drums, scratchy and twanging guitar, thick funky bass, saxophone and occasionally flute, violin, or other instruments. The cut-up surreality of their lyrics and energetic, girl-punk sound put them in a league with bands like The Raincoats (frequent tour partners), Delta 5, The Slits, Essential Logic and Bush Tetras. The band's sound developed throughout their career, due in part to line-up changes; the earlier recordings are more noisy and energetic, while the later songs are more complex and haunting.[citation needed]

    Liliput Biography

    WEBSITE
    Originally called "Kleenex", this Swiss band had to change their name in order to avoid legal trouble with the tissue manufacturers. This all-girl-band (mostly) with a very energetic and original sound was considered by some as a sort of "the new Slits". After a few records and various personnel and musical changes they split in the early 80's.

    Band members: Klaudia Schifferle, Marlene Marti, Astrid Spirig
    Band ex-members: , Angela Schleitzer, Lislot Ha., Chrigle Freund, Beat Schlatter, Christoph Herzog
    ---

    LiLiPUT were a Swiss female post-punk band active from 1978 to 1983, initially known as Kleenex.

    The group formed in Zurich in 1978 under the name Kleenex, with a line-up of Regula Sing (vocals), Marlene Marder (Marlene Marti, guitar), Klaudia Schiff (Klaudia Schifferle, bass, vocals), and Lislot Ha (Lieselotte Hafner, drums). After releasing an EP in Switzerland, the band were signed by Rough Trade Records and released their debut single "Ain't You" in November 1978. In early 1979, Sing left, and contrary to misinformation, did not join the Mo-dettes, and was replaced by Chrigle Freund. who was later replaced by Astrid Spirit (Astrid Spirig).

    Second single "You" was their last under the Kleenex name as the threat of legal action by Kimberly-Clark in 1979 prompted a change of name to LiLiPUT (Kleenex being a proprietary brand in Switzerland). The band released two further singles, both of which were hits on the UK Indie Chart, before releasing their first, self-titled album in 1982.

    A second album, Some Songs, was released in December 1983, by which time the band had split up.

    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 and subsequently on a 4 LP Box-Set on Mississippi Records.

    Kurt Cobain from Nirvana listed the band on his Top 50 favorites albums.

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

    On 15 May 2016, guitarist Marlene Marder died at age 61.
