BiKiNi KiLL STuFF
"What (some) bands do is go, 'It's not important that I'm a girl,
it's just important that I want to rock.' And that's cool.
But that's more of an assimilationist thing. It's like the just
want to be allowed to join the world as it is; whereas I'm more into
revolution and radicalism and changing the whole structure.
What I'm into is making the world different fo me to live in"
"I hate the attitude of, 'oh we already have a Lydia Lunch,
so we don't need a Bikini Kill.' Well, there's like 2 hundered
million all-male bands writting 'baby baby I love you, let me drag
you around on my ankle.' Is that enough already? Duh!"
Bikini Kill was started in Olympia, Washington around the
same time as many commercially successfull bands (like Nirvana,
whom they opened for on may occasions). BK is not a real girl
band(Billy plays guitar) but they are a GRRRL band. Kathleen
and Co. helped start the RIOTGRRRL movement which has gotten bad
media play. They were offered many chances to sign on major
labels but always stuck to thier ideals and never sold out.
They signed to KILL ROCK STARS and were loyal. The band has now
split up but its members continue to perform solo.
