The Original Riot Grrrl is back!
In 1997, legendary Riot Grrrl pioneer Kathleen Hanna (Bikini Kill, Le Tigre) released a solo album under the name "Julie Ruin" with the intention of forming a band to perform the songs live. In 2010, with Le Tigre on hiatus, Kathleen began to build her dream team with whom she recorded the Julie Ruin debut album.
Titled Run Fast, The Julie Ruin's debut album as a band proper will be released September 3 via TJR Records, distributed via Dischord and features Kathi Wilcox on bass (a Bikini Kill bandmate), Kenny Mellmanon keys (’Kiki and Herb’), Carmine Covelli on drums (actor, filmmaker and musical juggernaut) and Sara Landeau on guitar (met Kathleen mentoring at Rock Camp for Girls.)
What a pedigree of women-oriented ladies!
Listen to "Oh Come On" below. It's sassy and bratty.
Are you feeling the Riot Grrrl and Julie Ruin resurgence?
