Bikini Kill To Reissue ‘Revolution Girl Style Now’ With 3 New Unreleased Tracks

Riot grrrl band Bikini Kill’s first recordings made on a demo tape in 1991 will be reissued with 3 new unreleased tracks, titled Revolution Girl Style Now on September 22, 2015 . The recordings will be made available digitally, as well as on vinyl and CD, released by Bikini Kill Records. The reissue is said to feature 3 unreleased tracks which include “Ocean Song”, “Just Once”, and “Playground”. Originally recorded by Pat Maley at ABC House in Olympia, Washington, the tape has been mixed by Fugazi’s Guy Picciotto and John Golden mastered the tracks.

This will be the band’s first release of original tracks after Reject All American (1996), their last studio album before they finally disbanded in 1997. In 2012, Bikini Kill had announced a series of reissues through their then newly-founded label Bikini Kill Records in celebration of the band’s 25th Anniversary. The band launched their own label as well a Bandcamp page where their releases can be streamed. In November of that year, they reissued their self-titled EP followed by an expanded version of Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah in the following year which was released post their split with Huggy Bear in 1993.
