LISTEN HERE: Alice Bag Interview MP3
Punk pioneer, Alice Bag’s second book is called Pipe Bomb for
the Soul. It picks up where her first book, Violence Girl, left off, after the dissolution of the Bags. Alice makes bold decision to fly down to Nicaragua, a
country in the throes of a revolution, in the hopes of becoming a better
teacher. Pipe Bomb for the Soul’s
source text is Alice’s
journal from 1986. It is fortified with her reflections on what happened, how
it changed her, and what she learned. Topics include beauty standards, Paulo
Freire’s concept of “banking” education, the FSLN, ethnicity, class, Comandante
Gladys Baez, and personalizing your own revolution.
This is an hour-long conversation with Alice
with Razorcake co-founder, Todd Taylor.
Pipe Bomb for the Soul is also available in blog form here.
