Bikini Kill Records, the label formed in 2012 by feminist punk band Bikini Kill, has announced its first release: a 20th anniversary reissue of the band’s debut 12-inch EP, to be released on November 20, 2012. The vinyl reissue will include a new fanzine in the form of a 34″ x 21″ poster featuring interviews with Ian MacKaye (Minor Threat, Fugazi) and Molly Neuman (Bratmobile), liner notes by Layla Gibbon (Skinned Teen, MRR), excerpts from the band’s zines (Bikini Kill #1 and #2, Jigsaw #4), and photos from band members’ personal archives.
The self-titled EP, originally released in the fall of 1992, comprises four songs recorded by Ian MacKaye at Inner Ear Studios, plus one song from the band’s 1991 demo cassette (recorded by Pat Maley at Yo-Yo Studios), and one song recorded during Bikini Kill’s live performance on April 4, 1992, at Washington, DC’s Sanctuary Theater.
