Following the demise of that there band, Kira began working towards a "real" career (as we in the "straight" world call it, even though I'm unemployed at the moment), as well as occasionally recording and touring with her husband (and now ex-) Mike Watt as the double-bass power duo Dos.
Kira was kind enough to speak with me on the telephone for an hour and a half one dandy Sunday night in October.

Justamente Tres is a seventeen song doodling by two of the well-known bass players of punk rock past: Kira Roessler (Black Flag) and Mike Watt (Minutemen, fIREHOSE).
Roessler handles the occasional vocal work and comes off sounding like a more modern blues singer akin to Billie Holiday or Ella Fitzgerald but obviously not nearly as good.
Since Dos (which consists of bassists Mike Watt and Kira Roessler) didn't release its first two records -- 1986's Dos and 1989's Numero Dos -- on CD, the albums were combined for the Uno Con Dos CD in 1991.

Songs like "'Til The Blood Ran" might make one believe that there are electronics utilized on the album, but the whole thing is just bass and vocals, Roessler and Watt in their tripped out, laid-back selves, about as far from their respective beginnings as one can get and be faintly recognizable.
While some of the tunes can be tedious and at seventeen songs it might be a tad too long, real enthusiasts of Watt and Roessler's work as well as fans of instrumental, jazzy bass work will get a kick out of this.

Sleeved in a controversial Raymond Pettibon drawing of a man with a gun to his temple standing near the dead bodies of his wife and child, FAMILY MAN is possibly the oddest of Black Flag's many releases.
The pieces are a combination of sociopolitical broadsides, many of which are punctuated with disturbing images, and wry, self-deprecating, and humorous bits of the kind he would continue to explore in his non-musical work in the future.
Side two is made up of instrumentals by the rest of Black Flag, drummer Bill Stevenson, bassist Kira Roessler, and guitarist Greg Ginn, whose metal-edged solos dominate the varied-length songs.

The Bill/Kira rhythm section, though not being as fierce and brilliant as the Biscuits/Dukowski/Cadena (see 84 demos bootleg) lineup, is more than adequate, even though when you see bill and kira live, they are not as energetic and animated as henry and greg, but this is really splitting hairs and and i know this.
The editing was also fabulous from the standpoint that someone took the time to incorporate all the camera angles into a flowing whole complete with fades, cuts, cross fades, etc. I do have a bone to pick with the guy who edited some of the in between song stuff.
Gregs guitar and Bills drums are quite audible though, but kira's bass needs to be twice as loud, but you *can* hear it.

Although Black Flag was unquestionably one of the greatest and most explosive live rock bands of all time, few of the band's shows were documented on video before its breakup in 1987.
Although the band only managed two British tours during its existence, a professionally shot video surfaced in 2000 of a U.K. show from 1984 (at the Bier Keller in Bradford), entitled simply Live.
Another bummer is that they cut out the time in between songs, when the band interacts with the crowd.

I just recently got a copy of Black Flag's "82 demos plus more" and there is an interview near the end and Kira is in it so I was like wow, I know nothing about Kira, lemme do a search.
as another reader said, I was aware of Kira's place in the Black Flag universe, but I didn't know much about her as a person, so that was really interesting.

Though the band didn't officially break up until 1987, 1985's IN MY HEAD was Black Flag's last studio recording, as well the last release to feature longtime drummer Bill Stevenson, who left shortly after these sessions to rejoin the Descendents and later form All.
Capping two years of exhausting productivity--four studio albums, a live album, and an instrumental EP--IN MY HEAD finds Stevenson, singer Henry Rollins, bassist Kira Roessler, and guitarist Greg Ginn moving back toward straightforward punk after a period spent exploring jazz-tinged heavy metal.
Neither as manic as the band's earliest material or as sluggish as the fruit of its metal-thud era, the 12 songs on IN MY HEAD are mostly mid-tempo rockers with plenty of room both for Rollins' political broadsides and Ginn's metallic solos.
