“Peace is a big word. I can’t isolate a few incidents in my life and say ‘I’m at peace’ when all around me the world is getting fucked by corporations and our country is waging war.” From a 2008 interview with Sandra Vista.

"I remember throwing up behind an amp once. I don’t know what I would have done without the nerves. The energy comes from the nerves. I was getting ready for the attack. I didn’t see the nerves as a bad thing at all. It’s part of the whole performance thing. It drove me over the edge."

Heading to Champaign for the @HipHopPunkFem symposium at University of Illinois. Full schedule here:
Castration Squad would play a show on the anniversary of JFK’s death every year, so it’s only fitting that I mark the big 5-Oh anniversary with Tiffany, Tracy, Elissa, Mary/Dinah and Shannon. From New Wave Theatre.

Thank you to @CypressParkLAPL and everyone involved in tonight’s reading. It was my pleasure to perform for you and I had a great time meeting you all. Thank you for having such good questions! A big thank you to my good friend Angie Skull, I wouldn’t want to do it without her. - Alice

"I’m a punk writer. I am as skilled at writing as I am at playing guitar, which means there are many people out there who are more skilled than I am, but I don’t care. I figured I was going to have to jump over my limitations to write a book, but that’s how I’ve lived my whole life." Alice Bag, interview with MRR, 2012.
