Otto anni per crearsi una leggenda. Dal 1988 al 1998 tanto è durata l’avventura devastante delle Bikini Kill. Prima che le ragazze cattive d’America si ritrovassero incastrate nell’etichetta “riot grrrl”, prima che il grunge inglobasse quell’ardore e quell’attitudine punkoide, prima di tutto c’erano Kathleen Hanna e le sue scudiere, c’era del benefico radicalismo di idee ed intenti. Quattordici anni dopo la raccolta ‘The Singles’ e a ben sedici dall’ultimo lavoro di studio ‘Reject All American’, dal sito ufficiale arriva l’annuncio della ristampa dell’intero catalogo a celebrare i 25 anni di una storia ancora “aperta”.
As our 25th anniversary approaches, Bikini Kill has decided to start our own record label called Bikini Kill Records. The Bikini Kill back catalog is currently available digitally via bikinikill.com, eMusic & iTunes. The Frumpies and Casual Dots are also up for sale now. We are working towards reissuing the physical Bikini Kill records one at a time. There are brand new Bikini Kill-T Shirts available from bikinikill.com at this time with more merch to come in the near future. Bikini Kill’s Self-Titled EP will come out in the fall of 2012 to commemorate the 20 year anniversary of its original release. We also plan to re-release our original demo tape, which contains songs that were previously unavailable and/or hard to find on vinyl & CD. We are currently going through our archive, which include photographs, practice tapes, live recordings, unreleased songs, films, video, writing, interviews, zines and flyers that we intend to feature on future releases and document on our website.
