When I was a kid and I stumbled on an episode of Rosanne with a riot grrl in it, I thought it was just about the coolest thing I’d ever seen. Then when I bought some Bikini Kill records I thought Revolution Grrl Style Now was the coolest idea I’d ever heard. Twenty something years later I still do. That’s why I’m excited that Bikini Kill have started their own record label where they are re-releasing all of Bikini Kill’s albums along with some new unreleased records. They are also re-releasing The Frumpies and Causual Dots.
While Bikini Kill have received attention in feminist theory, someone needs to write something on them and Nation of Ulysees and Maoism.
