This Weekend I’ll Mostly Be Listening to… Hole July 31, 2021

Posted by irishelectionliterature in This Weekend I'll Mostly Be Listening to....

Was watching one of those old Glastonburys recently on BBC4, the ones you start watching and naming all the bands that appear, incredulous that your children had never heard of like ….Hole, The Levellers or Travis!! … Of course you start muttering how music was better back then……

Anyway I had forgotten how good Hole were in the late 1990’s ……

Do you know, I’ve never listened to them. I don’t know why. They just weren’t on my radar. Interesting though.

I’ve not listened to them much either. I like quite a few of the Riot Grrrl bands from the 1990s.

I remember reading what was probably an unfair commentary on Courtney Love, about how unsurprising it was that she only seemed to write good music while she was with great musicians – Kurt Cobain and Billy Corgan. The implication was that she barely wrote her own music.

I find my enjoyment of Hole (and I was only listening to Live Through This a few weeks back) seriously undermined by knowing too much about Courtney Love. Whom I find to be a deeply problematic and unpleasant person.

The latest example being the kerfuffle with Olivia Rodrigo over the LTT cover re-enactment. This after Love did the very same thing to Smashing Pumpkin’s Melon Collie & the Infinite Sadness cover after her breakup with Corgan.
