"Liliput celebrate the right rock gives to say anything, expressing their keen, nothumorless 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, 2001 "...Liliput's alternate vision of pop is inspiring, entrancing, and therefore utterly essential..." - NME Magazine, 2001 "...Eerie and delightful.
Erudite and infantile. Nearly unknown, without an ounce of selfpity." - Spin Magazine, 2001 "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.com, 2001
