Liliput - Die Matrosen (7'' 1980)

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 personal and musical changes they split in the early 80's.

One of their greats - "Split" is a proto-avant-girlpunk gem. I wasn't so keen on "Die Matrosen" at the time, leaving me to fall in love with it years later. Agree with Sergio, Kleenex/Liliput far surpass the great Slits in my affection, and even the glorious Raincoats. It's music that stays with you from first listen to grave.
