If you've watched any live YouTube footage of Kleenex/Liliput then you know how amazing they were as a live band. If not you're in luck as this CD/DVD set is a testament to their greatness. The CD features two full live sets: Kleenex live in Biel in 1979 and Liliput live in Zurich in 1983, and they include some never before released songs. This is the sound of a world-class band in their prime. The DVD includes the much rumored about document of their European tour in 1982, Roadmovie, as well as live performances of the band on Swiss TV.
Kleenex/LiLiPUTís Liliput album (KRS, 2001) was ranked #26 in SPINís ď50 Most Essential Punk RecordsĒ"...Liliput's alternate vision of pop is inspiring, entrancing, and therefore utterly essential..." NME "...Eerie and delightful. Erudite and infantile. Nearly unknown, without an ounce of self-pity."SPIN"Liliput celebrate the right rock gives to say anything, expressing their keen, not-humorless intellects through voices and music alike. Their influence can be heard throughout the riot-grrl Diaspora of modern times, but Liliput managed one crucial difference: they made radical social and aesthetic re-engineering sound like the greatest party you've ever been to in your life."Pitchfork"They convey both raw power and a sense of absolute creative freedom with every track, whether it's a bouncy more pop-ish number or an angular piece of post-punk. They're easy to fit within categories of both punk rock and feminism, yet they play with such a carefree, wild attitude that it's hard to imagine them pausing to intellectualize or categorize what they do."PopMatters
