Kleenex : Ain't You (Sunrise/Rough Trade 1978)

"All-girl band from Switzerland, they released Ain't You on their own label, Sunrise, one of the first releases distributed by Rough Trade before being re-issued on the Rough Trade label itself. In 1980 the band changed their name to Liliput after a threatened legal action by tissue manufacturers Kimberley-Clark (see also Glaxo Babies). Kleenex, alongside other Punk bands such as The Slits and The Raincoats had a big influence on the Riot Grrrl! movement of the 1980s and early 90s"

Note by Stuart Baker from the very instructive compilation "DIY, the rise of the independent music industry after punk" issued early 2007 on Soul Jazz Records
