Told from the perspective of those directly involved, Riot Grrrl: Revolution Girl Style Now! is a uniquely comprehensive exploration of this pioneering scene and its interlinked music, art and zine communities. Profiling bands from the movementís ground-breaking beginnings through to those still prominent, including Bratmobile, Bikini Kill, Huggy Bear, Lungleg, Mambo Taxi and Le Tigre. Riot Grrrl narrates the changing face of guerrilla activism through exploring the movementís characteristic art and aesthetic, discussing collectives such as the Guerrilla Girls and surveying the influential zine movement.
Featuring a foreword from Beth Ditto alongside contributions from a diverse array of musicians, artists, fanzine writers and activists. The book charts the movementís genesis in proto-riot grrrls such as Patti Smith, Yoko Ono and Sonic Youth's Kim Gordon and explores its continued influence on a diverse range of contemporary artists including Electrelane and The Gossip.
Visually stunning, filled with photographs, posters, record covers, rare fanzines and artwork from the key protagonists, the book is a comprehensive view of the principles and champions of one of punkís most influential movements. At times shocking, always inspiring, Riot Grrrl: Revolution Girl Style Now! is a fascinating and important book.
