Revolution Girl Style Now
Expanded reissue. Bikini Kill is the infamously fierce, riot grrrl band featuring feminist punk pioneers Kathleen Hanna, Tobi Vail, Billy Karren and Kathi Wilcox. The Revolution Girl Style Now was their 1991 cassette-only debut. This reissue features three previously unreleased 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." Bikini Kill formed in Olympia, Washington in October 1990. They began working together on a fanzine called Bikini Kill and then formed a band of the same name. The band wrote songs together and encouraged a female-centric environment at their shows, urging women to come to the front of the stage and handing out lyric sheets to them.
