Sleater-Kinney - Sleater-Kinney


  • £14.99

Sleater-Kinney's self-titled debut album, originally released in 1995 on Chainsaw Records, is a visceral and coolly raw record that owes much to the sound of Corin Tucker and Carrie Brownstein's other bands at the time, Heaven To Bestsy and Excuse 17, but also hints at the acclaimed dual-voiced sass-punk pop-brilliance the band would go on the make over the next quarter-century. 

Formed in Olympia, WA in 1994, Sleater-Kinney were an integral part of the feminist riot grrrl scene that grew out of the city in the early-90's. Featuring drummer Lora MacFarlane (Ninetynine), their debut album was recorded by Nick Carrol while the band were spending time in Melbourne, Australia, and further produced by Tim Green (Nation Of Ulysses) back at the Red House in Olympia. 

This edition, remastered by Creg Calbi, was reissued, along with the band's other first seven albums, by Sub Pop in 2014.
