SGD 54.00

The new album by the great L.A. punk band arrives, tragically, a few weeks after its founder Kim Shattuck died after being diagnosed with ALS, or amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease. A singular force, Shattuck, 56, and bandmates Ronnie Barnett (bass) and Roy McDonald (drums) formed in the early 1990s. Across six studio LPs and countless L.A. club gigs, they became one of the most beloved and admired area rock bands of their time, even if they weren’t the most commercially successful. Long in the making, the bittersweet “No Holiday” was recorded after Shattock learned she had ALS, which runs in her family. It features songs she wrote between 1991 and 2017. At 18 songs, “No Holiday” is basically a double album, one that sits somewhere along a continuum of epic works that includes the Clash’s “London Calling” and Liz Phair’s “Exile in Guyville.” The determination, the vision, the energy — it’s real. When it ends, the silence is deafening.
