Bikini Kill Seminal riot grrrl group Bikini Kill have launched their own label, simply dubbed Bikini Kill Records. The band will be reissuing their entire discography through the label--already available digitally though their Bandcamp page as well as eMusic and iTunes--with physical reissues beginning later this year with their self-titled debut EP:

"Bikini Kill's Self-Titled EP will come out in the fall of 2012 to commemorate the 20 year anniversary of its original release. We also plan to re-release our original demo tape, which contains songs that were previously unavailable and/or hard to find on vinyl & CD. We are currently going through our archive, which include photographs, practice tapes, live recordings, unreleased songs, films, video, writing, interviews, zines and flyers that we intend to feature on future releases and document on our website."

In addition to influencing an immeasurable amount of '90s punk and hardcore bands, members of Bikini Kill went on to perform in groups such as Le Tigre, the Julie Ruin and several others. They were originally together from 1990-1998.
