BIKINI KILL - I Like Fucking 7'' 1995

Riot Grrrl from the States: Bikini Kill, Hell Yeah! - I like their dirty punish sound!! Great Combo which released a few awesome albums and all are great. Here's a little appetizer and after listen you want more. Go and buy their records if you have the chance. Two killer tunes here. No doubt, both songs kick ass, that's it! A little info: The band formed in Olympia/Washington in October 1990, by Kathleen Hanna (vocals), Billy Karren (guitar), Kathi Wilcox (bass), and Tobi Vail (drums). They began working together on a fanzine called Bikini Kill and, with the addition of label founder Go Team guitarist Billy Karren, formed a band of the same name and they began to write songs. After an independent demo cassette called "Revolution Girl Style Now!", Bikini Kill released their s/t EP on the indie label Kill Rock Stars. The band's debut album 'Pussy Whipped' was released in 1993 and the band toured through Europe. In 1994 Riot Grrrl was receiving constant attention in the media, and Bikini Kill were increasingly referred to as pioneers of the movement. Hanna called for a "media blackout" amongst Riot Grrrls, as they felt the band and the movement were being misrepresented by the media. The band's final album was Reject All American (1996). After breaking up in 1997, a collection of singles were released only on vinyl between 1995 to 1996, called The Singles.
