Bikini Kill Records, the label formed in 2012 by feminist punk band Bikini Kill, is excited to announce its first release: a 20th-anniversary re-issue of the band's debut 12" EP. The re-issue includes a new fanzine in the form of a 34" x 21" poster featuring interviews with Ian MacKaye (Minor Threat, Fugazi) and Molly Neuman (Bratmobile), liner notes by Layla Gibbons (Skinned Teen, MRR), excerpts from the band's 'zines (Bikini Kill #1 and #2, Jigsaw #4), and photos from band members' personal archives.

The self-titled EP, originally released on October 9, 1992, comprises four songs recorded by Ian MacKaye on July 3, 1991, at Inner Ear Studios; one song from the band's 1991 demo cassette, recorded by Pat Maley (Yo-Yo Studios); and one song recorded during Bikini Kill's live performance April 4th, 1992, at Washington, D.C.'s Sanctuary Theater.

This EP marks the beginning of a larger campaign to re-issue the complete Bikini Kill catalog as well as previously unreleased material.
