Kim Shattuck, who first gained notice as a member of the Pandoras and later led the pop/punk band the Muffs, died this morning in LA at the age of 56 after a two year battle with ALS aka Lou Gehrig’s disease.

As a rocker and a screamer she was second to none. The first two Muffs albums hold up as well as just about anything released in the 90s. But sometimes her songwriting displayed a gentler and occasionally BB’s influenced side. That was probably why she and her Muffs bandmates appeared at one of the Wild Honey shows in LA some years ago and performed this:

Seeing Kim taking on one of the most complicated Brian melodies is a little startling and though she might have done better tearing through, say, Little Honda, there’s something gentle and childlike in her delivery that fits in. She’ll be missed.

Maybe I put too much faith in atmosphere

I don't know her or her music but 56 is a tragically young age for anyone to die. I hope she has found peace now.
