Kill Rock Stars

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Kill Rock Stars is an American independent record label based in Olympia, Washington state.

The label was founded in 1991 by Slim Moon. Moon initially intended to release vinyl singles with spoken lyrics. However, the label began to expand to include various local bands, such as Unwound, Witchypoo, and influential riot grrrl bands Bikini Kill and Bratmobile, as well as foreign bands like Huggy Bear from the UK.

Later, bands and solo artists such as Sleater-Kinney, The Decemberists, Lois Maffeo, Mary Lou Lord, Elliott Smith, Mukilteo Fairies, Deerhoof, Jeff Hanson, The Thermals and Gossip joined the band. The releases of local bands, on the other hand, took a back seat.
