Inspiring Music Series – Michelle Gonzales drummer of Spitboy

March 18, 2014

When I first started going to underground music shows in the early 1990’s most bands were made up of straight, white boys in their early 20s. When I saw the band “Spitboy” I was thrilled. They were an anarcho-punk band from California whose songs expressed frustration at patriarchy. Their song “Ultimate Violations” puts statistics about rape into powerful music. The drummer/lyricist Michelle Gonzales recently published a zine about her experiences touring with the band called “The Spitboy Rule: Tales of a Female Punk Band.” The zine is available at this link for only $5 plus shipping!
Here is a link to one of their songs.
