What an outstanding compilation of artists who played at the
International Pop Underground Convention in 1991. You read the
performers list; from Bratmobile, to Courtney Love, to Bikini Kill, to
Nirvana, to 7 Year Bitch. This is a beautiful 'snapshot' of the best of
the early 90's west coast, and perhaps more importantly and as the liner
notes accurately put it, “all of these bands have faith in the future
of punk rock and they are, without question, punk rock.”
Kill Rock Stars is an excellent 14-track various-artists collection
capturing the essence of early-’90s indie-rock pop underground. It’s
divided equally between amateurish indie-pop, abrasive punk and riot
grrrl, featuring many of the best underground bands of that time,
including Bratmobile, Mecca Normal, Bikini Kill, Heavens to Betsy,
Unwound, Nation of Ulysses, Some Velvet Sidewalk, Nirvana, and Lois
performing under the name Courtney Love.
If there was a single compliation of “Grunge” this would be it. Between
Bikini Kill, Infamous Menagere and Nirvana, you really get a sense of
what was going on during the early 1990s. I don't think it is over the
top to say that this is a slice of music revolution.
