Released in 1980, Los Angeles, the debut album from the Southern California punk band X, stretches beyond the limitations of the punk scene to deliver one of the most emotionally powerful performances ever captured on tape. The Doors’ keyboardist Ray Manzarek produced the sessions by hanging back and ensuring that the magic of the group’s live energy was left to speak for itself. From the haunting, off-kilter harmonies of Exene Cervenka and John Doe and the splintered poetry that follows junkies and socialites alike through the Hollywood glitz, to guitarist Billy Zoom’s Chuck Berry-inspired manic riffing and drummer D.J. Bonebrake’s peerless tempo shifts, Los Angeles is one of rock music’s most enduring debut albums. The junkie violence behind “Johny Hit and Run Paulene” and “Sugarlight,” the sneering moral collapse of the title track and “Sex and Dying In High Society,” the steamroller cover of the Doors’ “Soul Kitchen” and the dance in the face of the apocalypse of “The World’s a Mess; It’s In My Kiss” all combine to make a flawless statement that never forgets how to rock. Quite simply: a masterpiece.
