Kleenex was one of the first all-female punk bands, coming straight out of Switzerland in 1978. They had to change their name from Kleenex to LiLiPUT when the Kimberley Clark Corporation threatened to sue them in 1979. I was first introduced to this band by the A Lines, who cover this song on their outstanding “You Can Touch” LP. I love this kind of disaffected foreign art school girl punk rock to the max! Surprisingly, this band’s debut ep only goes for $10 or so on eBay. The clothes these Swiss misses are wearing would not look out of place in an American Apparel ad today.
* edit: I guess Kill Rock Stars released something by LiLiPUT this year. Whatevs. I guess in not the archeologist I fancy myself to be.
According to the internet, this is not a joke or a parody. This clip is from a show about rejected TV pilots. Poochinski “starred” Peter Boyle as a cop who is reincarnated as a talking bulldog puppet or whatever? I desperately want to make this a real weekly television show. I know that puppet is gathering dust in the same warehouse where the Ark is stored at the end of Raiders of the Lost Ark.
