LiLiPUT/Kleenex, Swiss female post-punk band 1978-1983

I just found this band today by listening to the MaximumRock’n’Roll radio show. They were originally called Kleenex before being forced to change their name to LiLiPUT.

Here is a video for the song hitch-hike:

Wikipedia: “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 sound put them in a league with bands like The Raincoats (frequent tour partners), Delta 5The SlitsEssential 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.”
