Bikini Kill - Yeah Yeah Yeah 12" – New LP
This is a reissue of BIKINI KILL’s second EP, Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah. Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah was recorded in 1992 with TIM GREEN (Nation of Ulysses) at The Embassy—a group-house in Washington, D.C.—and was the first Bikini Kill release to feature the band’s song, “Rebel Girl.” Originally a split EP with the Brighton, UK-based band, Huggy Bear, the B-side now features seven previously unreleased Bikini Kill songs drawn from era-appropriate live shows and practice tapes. The artwork has also been updated to include archival photos and liner notes from the Bratmobile’s ERIN SMITH, Comet Gain’s DAVID FECK, and the members of Bikini Kill.
Bikini Kill Records is excited to announce our second reissue - the newly expanded Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah LP featuring seven previously unreleased tracks. It will be released on April 15th, 2014.
The first 500 copies ordered will receive a free, limited edition poster.
Side A of Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah was originally released in 1993 as the BK side of their split record with the UK’s Huggy Bear, to kick off their legendary co-headlining tour of the UK in March of that year. Those tracks were recorded in their Washingon DC basement practice space on a 4 track reel to reel in 1992 by Tim Green (Nation of Ulysses, The Fucking Champs).
Side B features seven songs either recorded live at shows during that era or at Bikini Kill practices.
The LP also includes new photos and liner notes from David Feck (Comet Gain), Erin Smith (Bratmobile), and from the band themselves.
The LP was mastered by TJ Lipple and Bob Weston.
