Item description for Riot Grrrl: Revolution Girl Style Now! by Nadine Monem...

Riot Grrrl is a vivid documentation of the fierce music, renegade art and independent literature that emerged from suburban America in the late 1980s and became a global phenomenon. With the rallying cry "REVOLUTION GIRL STYLE NOW!" this community of musicians, artists and activists inspired young women across the world to pick up guitars and rewrite rock history, changing the face of feminism and underground culture forever.

From guerrilla girls to punk princesses, contributors include a diverse array of musicians, artists, fanzine writers and activists. Told from the perspective of those directly involved, Riot Grrrl is a uniquely comprehensive exploration of this pioneering scene, profiling bands including Bikini Kill, Bratmobile and Huggy Bear.

The book charts the movement's 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 that include Courtney Love and The Organ. At times shocking, always inspiring, Riot Grrrl is a fascinating and important book.

Reviews - What do customers think about Riot Grrrl: Revolution Girl Style Now!?

Exhaustive, but GREAT  Jul 15, 2008
This is better than the Riot Grrrl film "Don't Need You" because this book also talks about the British Grrrls. I like Kathleen Hanna & Allison Wolf, but my favorite bands are the English ones. My favorite band coming out of the earth's core in the early 90's was Huggy Bear. They called out the revolution in a style and urgency than their American counterparts. Great read!!
Loved it.  Feb 3, 2008
I wasn't sure what to expect from this book as it had not been reviewed at the time I purchased it, but I was pleasantly surprised. It's split into 4 sections: the first two cover the history of riot grrrl, the third riot grrrl writing and zines, and the fourth the movement's relevance to feminism at large. The book is very well designed, and is full of colour photographs of bands, flyers, zines, and more. I know this is a book that I will peruse often.
A nice blend of first person information and the history of Riot Grrl.  Dec 15, 2007
Another perspective on a movement that still seems to shoot under the radar. A nice blend of first person information and the history of Riot Grrl. The name is taken from Bikini Kill's 1991 self released first album.
