LILIPUT (Buy CDs by this artist)
Liliput (UK Rough Trade) 1982
Some Songs (UK Rough Trade) 1983
DANGERMICE
Sound Session EP (Swiss Sounds!) 1989

Formerly known as Kleenex (with a batch of 45s under that name), the three Swiss women in Liliput play a now-popular form of anti-rock characterized by choppy rhythms, harsh melodies and atonal vocals. Amazingly, they exhibit such upbeat enthusiasm in their attack that the music acquires a prickly charm. Hard on the ears, though. (Guitarist Marlene Marder later resurfaced in Dangermice.)

[Jon Young]
