Bikini Kill reissue Revolution Girl Style Now

Bikini Kill reissue Revolution Girl Style Now

Bikini Kill is the infamously fierce, riot grrrl band featuring feminist punk pioneers Kathleen Hanna, Tobi Vail, Billy Karren and Kathi Wilcox. Bikini Kill's first collection of work, Revolution Girl Style Now, will be released on vinyl, CD, and digital formats for the first time on September 22 via Bikini Kill Records. There will also have a limited edition replica version of the demo cassette available by mail order only.
The Revolution Girl Style Now reissue features three previously unreleased and mostly unheard tracks: "Ocean Song", "Just Once", and "Playground". These songs feature a decidedly more grunge sound than the rest of the Bikini Kill catalog. Fun fact: the tape actually runs out as they're recording "Playground".
The Revolution Girl Style Now demo tape was originally self released in May of 1991. The demo was recorded by Pat Maley at the ABC House in Olympia, WA earlier that year. Bikini Kill played one of their first shows at the house the night before and left their equipment set up to record the demo the next day. The songs were mixed by Guy Picciotto (Fugazi)and mastered by John Golden for this reissue.
Bikini Kill was a feminist punk band based in Olympia, WA and Washington DC, forming in 1990 and breaking up in 1997. Kathleen Hanna sang, Tobi Vail played drums, Billy Karren (a.k.a. Billy Boredom) played guitar, and Kathi Wilcox played bass. Sometimes they switched instruments. Bikini Kill is credited with instigating the Riot Grrrl movement in the early 90's via their political lyrics, zines, and confrontational live show. 

Bikini Kill Records was started in 2012 by Bikini Kill to document and reissue their back catalog. They are exclusively distributed by Dischord Direct.
