Editorial Reviews

Review

"It's rare that someone at the real beginning of something so monumentally influential is around long enough to put it down in writing. I recommend Violence Girl." - Henry Rollins, LA Weekly


"A riveting autobiographical reflection from the former lead singer of The Bags, equal parts Chicana Lit and punk rock." - OC Weekly 

"An autobiography unlike any other. Powerfully yet simply written. Brutally honest and often tragic. A story of hope and redemption against all odds, with a revolving cast that is sometimes mind-boggling. Deeply personal." - Australian Hysteria Magazine, Feb 2012

"Fierce and funny, feminist and political, and punk as f___, Violence Girl is a true survivor's tale. An introduction to an irrepressible spirit you'll be glad you met." - Bitch


"Absolutely inspiring..in Violence Girl, we find a thoroughly moving story of personal triumph." - The Stranger

About the Author

Alice Bag was there at the origins of L.A. punk, at the famed Masque and Whisky-a-Go-Go, hanging out with Darby Crash and the Go-Gos. But she started as Alicia Velasquez, and English was her second language. She knew Mariachis better than rock music. A certain violence was passed on to her from her Mexican-American father. Alice's feminist qualities were seen in the notorious Castration Squad band she formed in the late '70s.

Alice and her Bags band was featured in the notorious documentary, The Decline of Western Civilization. She is currently married, has children, and lives in Phoenix, Arizona.
