Pitchfork said that The Singles by Bikini Kill defined the band. This description writer would like to take that a little further and suggest that it defined the Riot Grrrl sound. The band were fronted by head Riot Grrrl Kathleen Hanna. Features classics such as Rebel Girl and New Radio - the latter being a collaboration with proto Riot Grrrl, Joan Jett. LP and CD on Bikini Kill Records.

9/10 The Doc Customer review, 25th September 2018

Maybe I'm biased because I was there at the time, but the 1990s was a golden age for alternative music. According to legend, 1991 was the year punk broke, and all eyes were on Seattle following Nirvana's meteoric rise to the top of the charts. All those industry bods with eyes on the grandiloquent cock-rock of Soundgarden, the studied stadium anthemics of Pearl Jam and the backyard sludge of Alice In Chains were really missing a trick though, as there was a far more interesting scene developing next door in Olympia WA. Bikini Kill were a seminal band, taking punk rock back to its roots, spearheading the riot grrrrl movement and showing a whole new generation of girls new ways to look at the world and their place in it. Their albums are all great, but the singles are absolutely essential, and its great to see this on vinyl after all these years. They had a blistering sound, coruscating, visceral lyrics and a fiercely intelligent, impassioned frontwoman in Kathleen Hannah. New Radio, Rebel Girl and I Like Fucking are all stone cold classics, but everything on here is worth hearing. Anyone with even the slightest interest in punk rock needs to be checking this out imediately - no collection should be without a copy.
