Title: Run Fast
Genre: Alternative Rock
Release Date: 2013

Vinyl LP pressing. 2013 debut album from this band led by former Bikini Kill/Le Tigre singer/songwriter Kathleen Hanna. This release also marks the much-anticipated reunion of Kathleen with her Bikini Kill bandmate Kathi Wilcox. For this project, Kathleen put together her dream group: Wilcox on bass, Kenny Mellmen (of Punk cabaret sensation Kiki And Herb) on keyboards, Sara Landeau on guitar, and Carmine Covelli on drums. Recorded at Oscilloscope Studios in New York, the 13 songs on Run Fast range from sing-along anthems about being part of the underground in the modern economy (‘Kids in NY’) to Punk stompers (‘Oh Come On’) and danceable takedowns (‘Ha Ha Ha’). The album also includes the soulful ‘Just My Kind,’ produced by James Murphy of LCD Soundsystem. Besides a couple of songs mixed by Kathleen herself, the bulk of the album was mixed by Eli Crews (Tune-Yards’ whokill).
