sc0004d237Sacripolitical (1982 – 1993) was a punk rock band from Marin County, CA.

The name Sarcipolitical was a reference to the band members’ attitude toward politics. Just as a person who is sacrilegious is irreverent toward the sacred, Sacripolitical played songs, like “Peace: Under our Supervision,” “The Nihilist Void,” and “Napalm Baby,” that were politically and philosophically irreverent.

Sacripolitical was together for the better part of a decade, playing at parties, underground shows in warehouses, in barns, and on the bill with other bands like UXB, The Pukes, Fang, Frightwig, and Camper Van Beethoven. Some shows ended in philosophical conversation; some ended in near riots!

We made a lot of friends, a lot of enemies, and had a lot of fun.
