Bikini Kill Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah EP on 12" Vinyl + Download
Reissue of the Band's 1993 EP Augmented with 7 Previously Unreleased Tracks & Updated Artwork Elements!
This is a vinyl reissue of feminist punk pioneers Bikini Kill's second EP, Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah. The release was recorded in 1992 with Tim Green (Nation of Ulysses) at The Embassy - a group-house in Washington, D.C. - and was the first Bikini Kill offering to feature the band's song, "Rebel Girl."
Originally a split EP with the Brighton, UK-based band, Huggy Bear, the B-side now features seven previously unreleased Bikini Kill songs drawn from era-appropriate live shows and practice tapes. The artwork has also been updated to include archival photos and liner notes from the Bratmobile's Erin Smith, Comet Gain's David Feck and the members of Bikini Kill. This is the second release in a larger campaign to reissue the complete Bikini Kill catalog on vinyl.
Based in Olympia, WA and Washington, DC, Bikini Kill formed in 1990 and broke up in 1997. Kathleen Hanna sang, Tobi Vail played drums, Billy Karren (aka Billy Boredom) played guitar and Kathi Wilcox played bass. Sometimes they even switched instruments. Bikini Kill is credited with instigating the Riot Grrrl movement in the early-90's via their political lyrics, zines and confrontational live show.
