NEW and REAL

The ways in which Bikini Kill has affected me are nearly infinite, and so are my memories of listening to you.
But the short story is: my heart and body were broken and I was closed and BK cracked me wide open again and made me smile at how quickly my isolation dropped away. You made the world seem NEW and REAL and I felt NEW and REAL every day after the first day I found you.

It’s been at LEAST 18 years since then, and I still feel more sane and settled when I listed to those songs. THANK YOU for a constant sense of renewal!

  1. Greetings from Florida! I’m bored to tears at work so I decided to check out your website on my iphone during lunch break. I love the info you present here and can’t wait to take a look when I get home. I’m shocked at how quick your blog loaded on my phone .. I’m not even using WIFI, just 3G .. Anyhow, excellent blog!
