‘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…

To Hell With Blue Mondays – Here’s Rock & Roll Bitch… COURTNEY LOVE

Weekly havoc to kick Blue Mondays in the ass…

You love or you hate her. After reading her 1998 biography Courtney Love: The Real Story by Poppy Z. Brite, years ago, I became a fan. I learned that Love had a miserable childhood and grew up without actually nobody, just nobody, taking care of her. This would affect her mental balance for the rest of her life (and, unfortunately, personally I know very well how psychological problems can mess up one’s mind). But she chose to survive, to fight back and to achieve something and she definitely did, with a middle finger for all those who branded her as a greedy opportunist. Yes, I love LOVE. She was amazing as an actress (The People vs. Larry Flynt / Man on the Moon) and even though she was not an outstanding musician she had brilliant moments with her band Hole (two great albums: Live Through This / Celebrity Skin). I saw her performing live twice and it was bloody ace. Here’s the one and only genuine rock and roll bitch…
