Heavens To Betsy - These Monsters Are Real


  • £7.99

Reissued in honour of its 25th anniversary, riot grrrl pioneers Heavens To Betsy's first 7" EP was released by Kill Rock Stars in 1993. 

Formed by bassist/vocalist Corin Tucker (Sleater-Kinney) and drummer Tracy Sawyer (The Lies) in Olympia, WA in 1991, Heavens to Betsy made their debut at the legendary International Pop Underground Convention. Alongside their peers Bikini Kill, Bratmobile, and Team Dresch, they ushered in a new era of feminist punk whose influence continues to be felt today! 

These Monsters Are Real was recorded by Tim Green (Nation Of Ulysses) and Molly Neuman (Bratmobile, Frumpies) at The Red House, Olympia, WA in December 1992, and this pressing has been remastered from the original tapes.
