I discovered the Swiss post-punk band LiLiPUT/Kleenex as a teenager, when I faithfully bought their 2001 Kill Rock Stars double CD reissue because it was highly recommended from other lady punks that I admired. All I really knew about them is that they were from Geneva and were originally named after Kleenex (a Swiss Tampon brand,) until lawsuits from the Kleenex Corporation forced them to change their name and they became LiLiPUT.
My best record-buying consultant friend Benjamin Cissner (formerly of Jive Time Records) recently informed me that when they were still called Kleenex, the band originally featured the singer from the Mo-Dettes, who I first fell in love with when I heard their song "White Mice" on the Rough Trade Post Punk compilation that I listened to on repeat for most of 2004. Apparently after re-naming themselves LiLiPUT, their original singer Regula Sing, aka Ramona Carlier went off and formed the another equally amazing but more mysterious UK band, the Mo-Dettes.
Both videos convince me that these bands were clearly the coolest and best dressed ladies of the 1980's. One YouTube commenter even says that, "I want to crawl into this video and live there," and I couldn't agree more. Oh, and Happy International Women's Day!
