Go-go boots and baby dolls. Perhaps not the most obvious choice for a band which creates some of the fastest and angriest punk rock. Produced in part by Ian MacKaye, the CD Version of the First Two Records, helped bring riot grrl and Bikini Kill worldwide mainstream attention. This attention is well.
Go-go boots and baby dolls. Perhaps not the most obvious choice for a band which creates some of the fastest and angriest punk rock. Produced in part by Ian MacKaye, the CD Version of the First Two Records, helped bring riot grrl and Bikini Kill worldwide mainstream attention. This attention is well deserved. The album opens with "Double Dare Ya,' inviting girls to speak out and voice their opinion, then continues with "Liar" with a familiar chorus of "Liar, Liar/Pants on fire." Despite the lyrical simplicity of some songs ("Liar" and "Suck my Left One") Bikini Kill shows more depth on the bass heavy "Outta Me" and "Feels Blind," with one of the best hooks ever, "in the doorway of demise I stand/encased in the whisper you taught me." The only slow point on the album is "Thurston Hearts the Who," a live rant which helps kill the albums momentum. Also included is Bikini Kill's anthem, "Rebel Girl."
