Alice Bag.
'Born Alicia Armendariz to Mexican immigrants who lived in East L.A., she emerged in the ’70s Hollywood punk scene.  Her furious screams would define the aggressive vocal style of the time. Rising over distorted electric guitar and sped up bass and drums, her voice created a thick dissonant texture — a trademark of the early punk sound that echoed L.A. tension.'

Her book, Violence Girl, should be read by anyone claiming to care/know about early Punk Rock. It’s that good.

"I guess I was a visually-oriented person, but I wasn’t a photographer per se, I’d never done a paid job or whatever. I just started to photograph what I was seeing. It was totally organic. One thing would lead to another."
Sheila Rock’s new book, Punk+, documents Britain’s early punk scene through countless of never before seen images. We had the chance to chat with her about her involvement in the movement and how she became it’s unofficial photographer - read the Q&A here.
