Bikini Kill reissue first demo tape

Bikini Kill release their 1991 demo tape Revolution Girl Style Now

Riot Grrrl outfit Bikini Kill have announced the reissue of their 1991 demo tape Revolution Girl Style Now. Coming out two years before their 1993 debut album Pussy Whipped (Kill Rock Stars), the cassette was the Olympia, Washington group’s first publicly released recording. Revolution Girl Style Now follows on from the reissue of The CD Version Of The First Two Records (which comprised of the Bikini Kill EP and tracks from Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah) by their own Bikini Kill Records imprint in June 2015. Featuring three previously unreleased tracks, Revolution Girl Style Now will be released on 22 September, in vinyl, CD and download formats, as well as a limited edition cassette. Pre-orders are available now from their website.
