“Holidays in the Sun” was the fourth single released by the Sex Pistols and it directly preceded the release of their only official studio album, Never Mind the Bollocks…Here’s the Sex Pistols. But let’s be realistic, the Pistols really were a singles band (and a live act, of course).  Here’s what they wrought:

  1. “Anarchy in the U.K.”/”I Wanna Be Me” (EMI) November 26, 1976
  2. “God Save the Queen”/”Did You No Wrong” (Virgin) May 27, 1977
  3. “Pretty Vacant”/”No Fun” (Virgin) July 2, 1977
  4. “Holidays in the Sun”/”Satellite” (Virgin) Oct 15, 1977

In August 2016, Kim Gordon had this to say about “Murdered Out”

“I met the uber talented Justin Raisen, the producer, offhandedly. He was working on a project with another artist and kept sending me tracks to listen to with the possibility of getting me to sing on one of them. When I learned I could make up my own lyrics, I was in. With the remaining bits of unused vocals, he started what would be “Murdered Out.” Stella Mozgawa (Warpaint) plays drums, based on the trashy drums that Justin first laid down. I went back and did more vocals and guitar and we mixed it…”Murdered Out” was such a great surprise! Looking forward to our next collaboration.”
