Courtney Publicly Fills Band Hole

Courtney Love placed full-page ads in the Village Voice and L.A. Weekly recruiting rockin’ babes for her live band:

    The ad says, “Women required for International Rock Revolution. Join Courtney Love’s touring band and get famous, see the world.”

    “Must play bass or guitar (really play), and look like a Goddess,” the ad continues. “We like Emily the Strange, Lolita Goth, Patty Schemel’s drumming, Nuggets and ‘Performance’ the Movie. We love Flea but don’t want you to play like him.” Love stresses “NO BOYS” will be considered.

    An address for audition tapes and a phone number are listed. Calling the number dumps callers to an answering machine message from the former Hole frontwoman that says, “Hey, leave us your info. You better be able to play.” The mailbox quickly filled to capacity. [Billboard]

She is working on her solo debut America’s Sweetheart, will play the Reading and Leeds festivals in August, then tour Europe and North America. I wonder if she’ll be flying Virgin to the UK.

Music Review: Henry Metal – ‘War in Heaven’ Offers Pulsating Metal, Stellar Riffs

'War in Heaven' is a heavy-duty album, especially for fans of metal. Original melodies, pulsing with energy and vibrating rhythms, are anything but derivative. Henry Metal’s voice retains a presumptuous vitality that works well, and his talent on the axe is superb – great shredding and ascendant riffs.
