So, a focus on Courtney Love's music today...
This was Hole's first single from 1990. It comprised three tracks: 'Retard Girl' 'Phonebill Song' and 'Johnnies In The Bathroom.'
The lineup for this single and the follow-up was:
Courtney Love - Vocals, guitar
Eric Erlandson - Guitar
Jill Emery - Bass
Caroline Rue -Drums
Hole -'Retard Girl.' mp3
Hole -'Phonebill Song.' mp3
Hole -'Johnnies In the Bathroom.' mp3
The single was released on Sympathy For The Record Industry.
This single, with the same lineup as above, came out in 1991. Though it was the b-side 'Burn Black' was the track that entered the Festive Fifty in 1991 (or Phantom FIfty, as John Peel named it, because he felt the chart was too predictable, and didn't broadcast anything from it until 1993). It came out on the mighty Sub Pop.
Hole -'Dicknail.' mp3
Hole -'Burn Black.' mp3
This single was the only one to feature bassist Lesley Hardy. Jill Emery had left the band in 1992, while that same year drummer Patti Schemel replaced Caroline Rue. Schemel would be replaced by Samantha Maloney in 1998. This song was the last one released before Hole signed to Geffen for the albums Live Through This and Celebrity Skin.
Hole -'Beautiful Son.' mp3
Hole -'20 Years In the Dakota.' mp3
Finally, as a bonus because the debut album Pretty On The Inside is not available in the UK, seemingly, here is the opening track from it:
Hole - ' Teenage Whore.' mp3
