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 movement's 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 movement's 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 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 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 punk's most influential movements. At times shocking, always inspiring, Riot Grrrl: Revolution Girl Style Now! is a fascinating and important book.

'This is an excellent book, which examines -- whatever you make of it -- a significant and fertile cultural phenomenon' Art Rocker 'A fascinating, exhaustive and balanced overview' Buzz 'An intense but delightfully insightful read' Grafik 'What this book manages to capture so candidly, though, is the identification and celebration of the personal as political; the fundamental element of third wave feminism' PlanB 'There's something splendidly inspirational about reading Riot Grrl' Wire Featured in FinTim, FT Germany, Dagens Nyheter, G2, Studio Voice, Vice Japan, and Subtext
