I just wanna take a moment to gush over the fact that my comic strip, The Best Song Ever turned 2 years old this month and I feel so proud and so so lucky, especially for the supremely supportive audience. Thanks for reading y’all.

Generacion Suicida Interview Podcast

Los Angeles is an unsolved mystery that’s shattered into hundreds of pieces: mirrors, daggers, broken things. In Los Angeles, DIY punk isn’t one thing. It’s not a unified scene, which is both a blessing and a curse. It’s a wide, fissured spectrum, a spectrum that also gets routinely shattered or too-thinly sliced by subgenre. It’s fractured by the immense geography of Los Angeles itself. People—punks included—become isolated by rivers, freeways, social class, customs, race, transit lines, and invisible lines that separate neighborhoods, sometimes mid-street that you’d never know about until you live there yourself or are shown by someone who does. Further deepen that segregation with generations-old neighborhood pride and prejudice, to friends parting ways over ego, to hubris, and issues of trying to become the police chiefs of their punk scenes. The isolation and separation doesn’t end at doorsteps. It goes deeper, more personal, to the spelling and slanginess of the words, to birthplaces, to skin color, to the darkness or lightness of skin color within a skin color. To blood, family, things you have no control over when you come into this world.Welcome to Los Angeles.

Generacion Suicida’s a four-piece band. They play icy, angular, catchy punk with oscillating male/female voices creating a serrated edge of paranoia and anxiety. It’s right up my alley. I highly recommend their entire catalog. (Their debut album Con La Muerte a Tu Lado was just released and it’s amazing.) Two of its members are from South Central L.A. One lives in Koreatown, another in Anaheim, Orange County. None are from East L.A. They sing solely in Spanish and remind me of bands from other countries, mainly Umeå, Sweden—in the Ny Våg tradition of the Vicious—and Copenhagen—Gorilla Angreb and No Hope For The Kids—which sort of brings the sound back home to California because those Scandinavian bands borrowed heavily from Los Angeles’s past (late ‘70s Dangerhouse, especially). The irony didn’t escape me. I’m more conversant in the language of songs of many bands that are based 5,317 miles from Razorcake HQ than I am in some of the bands that live less than twenty miles away. It’s not like I’m trying to be willfully ignorant of punk in my hometown. That’s just the nature of the beast here in L.A. One mile past the last bus stop often is the end of the world.Los Angeles is its own country. The up side is this: some of the best DIY punk in the world has been and is being made in Los Angeles. We have a rich, diverse heritage. One that’s as great as it is totally fucked and frustrating. But it’s this real fight to be heard—even in your neighborhood—to make meaningful music that gives it such vitality, such uniqueness. What do White Murder, Wreck Of The Zephyr, Thee Undertakers, Toys That Kill, Neighborhood Brats, Rough Kids, Spokenest, and Generacion Suicida have in common besides they’re active punk bands in L.A.? Not much, except they all rule in their own distinctive ways. And that’s what keeps being a punk in L.A. exciting.

“Jazz is a white term to define black people. My music is black classical music.”― Nina Simone


We’re releasing our first EP ‘Sistah Punk’ and we want to celebrate it with everyone. We’ll have bands, tunes, sweets, bingo, maybe even a dance off. 

Black Feminist Bingo: What it says on the tin. Enjoy our black feminist twist on Grandma’s favourite.

Wolf Girl: The loveliest band in London join us to help make our launch party memorable. Garage punk pop never sounded so good.

Big Joanie: Big Joanie are black feminist punk band who formed in July 2013 to play their first gig at First Timers. We formed to create a continuum for black punks by presenting a strong, powerful vision of black womanhood and to teach people about black punks who came before us.

CELEBRATING BLACK WOMEN IN ROCK AND ROLL: POLY STYRENE

British rocker Poly Styrene, born Marianne Joan Elliott-Said, formed her own punk rock band, X-ray Specs, after seeing the Sex Pistols perform live at the Pier Pavillion on her 19th birthday. Before that, she had been dabbling in the art, recording demos with producer Ted Bunting and releasing her first single, a reggae tune called “Silly Billy”. After creating X-ray Specs, where she sang lead vocals, she began her feminist punk movement and opposed the male expectations of what a female rock star in the 70s should be.
