HERE: Angie Skull Interview MP3
Angie “Skull” Garcia has been an active participant in the Los Angeles/San
Gabriel Valley punk scene as scenester and musician for more than thirty years.
Over the years she has played bass for Moslem Birth, Peace Corpse, Insulin
Reaction, Knucklebone, Punkoustica and, most recently, as part of the musical
unit that accompanies Alice Bag on her book tours. She is also a visual artist
of note, including a collection of “Dollbot
” creations, each
unique both in design and backstory. Although not a household name even within
the local scene—it’s no secret that the rhythm section provides a band’s
heartbeat and propulsion, but the lion’s share of the attention goes to the
singer and guitarist(s)—Garcia is not only one of many woefully overlooked
contributors to impact her local scene through her work, she is also one of
very few women and eastside “O.G.” punks to remain consistently active from the
scene’s early days.
Bookended between some fine tuneage, courtesy of Insulin Reaction’s
"Machine" and Peace Corpse’s "Jocko Macho," Todd and Jimmy
chat with Angie about her involvement in the scene, her transition from fan to
musician, parallels between punk and working as a mail carrier, and what has
kept her involved through the years.
