Violence Girl with Alice Bag

Alice performing live at the Comet in Cincinnati, Ohio

Alice Bag -a really sweet feminist punk chicana- was kind enough to join Betsy Young (of Aurore Press fame) and I on the radio, calling in from her home in Arizona, to talk about her book Violence Girl: From East L.A. Rage to Hollywood Stage, A Chicana Punk Story.

This came out from one of Betsy’s favorite publishers, Feral House. And I must say I have a number of Feral House titles in my collection (besides this wonderful book) and am quite impressed with their catalog.

Best known as the singer of THE BAGS,ALICE BAG was one of the founders and members of the first and most popular bands of the early L.A. punk scene and were notable for having two strong female members. Their music was fast, aggressive and confrontational. Alice recently penned her memoir about growing up in East LA, life during the 70s punk movement in Los Angeles, and more entitled VIOLENCE GIRL.
