Julie ruin full album

Julie Ruin is the independent record produced by Kathleen Hanna under the name Julie Ruin in 1997, while taking a break from Bikini Kill. It touches upon feminism, crocheting, aerobics and resisting police abuse. It was mostly produced in Kathleen's apartment in Olympia, Washington. Despite this project mostly being known for the album, Kathleen Hanna started collaborating with her friends Sadie Benning and Johanna Fateman in order to create a live version of Julie Ruin. This group would go on to become Le Tigre.


In December 2010, Kathleen Hanna and former Bikini Kill band mate Kathi Wilcox previewed a performance of their new project The Julie Ruin at the Knitting Factory in Brooklyn.
