‘Skinny Little Bitch’ By HOLE – Vicious Single Came Out 10 Years Ago Today…

12 March 2020

Band: Hole
Single: Skinny Little Bitch 
B-side: Codine
Released: 12 March 2010 – 10 years ago today
Album: Nobody’s Daughter – the band’s 4th album
NME described it just perfectly: “a balls-out, low-down
dirty rock song, and as fine a signature tune for the new
Hole as you could imagine. Tapping the same lyrical vein as
‘Samantha’, it’s The Stooges fronted by a Joan Jett re-imagined
as the Bride Of Frankenstein. And it’s the sound of Courtney
having fun.”

Score: #19 in the US

COURTNEY LOVE Says A HOLE Reunion Is Possible…

29 May 2019

As former manic grunge legends HOLE celebrated the 25th birthday of their second album Live Through This last month, front-screamer-woman COURTNEY LOVE talked about a possible reunion in an interview with British newspaper The Guardian: “We are definitely talking about it. There’s nothing wrong with honoring your past. I’ve just kind of discovered that. If you don’t, people will rewrite history and you will become an inconvenient woman.” Read the whole story here. I saw the 2010 HOLE reincarnation playing live twice
(Amsterdam and Paris), but wouldn’t mind to see more of the original.

If they come back here are three killers I want them to play…

Portland’s Electro Act CHROMATICS Covers HOLE’s Darksome ‘PETALS’ Track…

28 May 2019

Countless fans are still waiting for Portland‘s electro act CHROMATICS‘ follow-up LP to their fourth longplayer called  Kill For Love released in 2012. Actually a new full length titled Dear Tommy was already announced back in 2014 but except for some singles no new full record yet.

To ease the impatience the band, let by the charismatic Ruth Radelet, has shared their cover of ‘PETALS‘, a song by Courtney Love‘s former band HOLE (from their splendid 1998 Celebrity Skin LP). Chromatics take is more hopeful, more romantic and lighter that the original. Check it out here…

Here’s the original by Hole
