Bikini Kill have shared the previously-unreleased track ‘Playground’. Scroll down to listen.
‘Playground’ is one of a number of unheard songs that will feature on the forthcoming reissue of the band’s 1991 demo tape ‘Revolution Girl Style Now’. The record will be released for the first time on CD, LP and digitally on September 22, while a reproduction of the original cassette tape will also be available.
In a new interview with Rolling Stone, former bandmembers Kathleen Hanna and Kathi Wilcox discussed the new songs. “Those were recorded at the same time, but for some reason we didn’t mix them,” said Hanna. “I’m pretty sure there wasn’t enough room on the cassette tape.”
“We just picked the songs that would fit on the cassette,” added Wilcox. “Maybe it was the songs we liked best at the time. I don’t remember how we chose, but they wouldn’t all fit on the cassette.”
Bikini Kill disbanded in 1997 having released two full-length albums, a number of EPs and two compilations.
