The SAFE EP was released this day in 2002 (November 19th). I remember buying this online – one of my first ever internet purchases.

One review by Christian Hoard said:

Kittie have gotten better in the last year: This seven-track EP continues their ascent from the dungeon of death metal and into the realm of chic goth rock, complete with piano, electronic grooves and, of course, a healthy dose of sludgy thrash.

Congratulations to Ivy & Geoff. Baby Melina was born Tuesday October 23rd.

Meet Malina Jenkins! She was born October 23, 2018 at 3:38 am, after 27 hours of labor for Ivy (whoa), at 18.5″ long, weighing 7 lbs 6 ounces.

Good luck with the recovery Ivy and enjoy those precious moments of staring at your newborn daughter 🙂

Kittie’s debut album ‘Spit’, released 1999, was featured in Kerrangs ’21 Greatest Nu-Metal Albums of All Time’. 

They ranked it as number 16.

For better or worse, nu-metal marked metal revolution in many senses. Even still, it never proved capable of breaking down the boys-club of old. One excellent exception to that rule was Canadian all-female outfit Kittie. Built around the core duo of sisters Morgan and Mercedes Lander – who were 17 and 15 respectively on this debut LP’s release – the Ontario quartet traded in a pulse-quickening combination of snarling riffage and punkish attitude (a blend of Korn’s heaviosity and the Riot Grrrl attitude of Hole and L7) and lyrics dealing with sexism, hatred, ignorance, betrayal and bullying. Song-titles like Suck, Spit, Get Off (You Can Eat A Dick) and Do You Think I’m A Whore bristle with unequivocal provocation. That fits perfectly.

Revolver has released a list of the top 20 essential nu-metal albums. Kittie’s ‘Spit’ is at lucky number 13.

Kittie’s core sister duo of Morgan (vocals, guitar) and Mercedes Lander (drums) were just 17 and 15, respectively, when the band dropped its breakthrough debut album, Spit, which made brash, no-holds-barred songs like “Do You Think I’m a Whore” and “Get Off (You Can Eat a Dick)” all the more shocking and hard-hitting. Nearly 20 years later, the group’s take-no-shit attitude, primal playing and mix of little-girl sing-song and I-am-woman roars aligns them as much with Nineties riot-grrrl firestarters like Babes in Toyland, L7 and Hole as it does nu-metal.

The GALLERY has been updated with pictures from the early days – the Spit and Oracle album.

 

Interviews‘ & ‘Video Interviews’ have been added.

We toyed with the idea of doing an Archive for the website, but it’s easier having everything here. The website itself is now best described as an archive!
