“Onstage the following night in front of maybe 50-60 people, Alice was a deranged primal shriek from the depths of an inner rage I couldn’t at first fathom. Seething. Breathless. I’d never seen any woman so angry. I was agog. Terrified and psyched at the same time.” - Brendan Mullen, recalling the Bags’ first show at the Masque in August, 1977.
