courtney love talks to the NME about ‘hole’

“We just negotiated our thing and it’ll be fine. Everyone has good lawyers.”

That doesn’t sound like the most solid defence for adopting her old band name Hole to plaster all over the long-awaited ‘solo’ album Nobody’s Daughter, but that’s what Courtney Love has told the NME in a new interview on sale from today. We haven’t read the whole thing yet but the NME website gives the impression that Love was either typically blasé about the whole thing or purposefully vague, hinting to the magazine that she and co-founder Eric Erlandson had come to some sort of financial arrangement that would allow her to persevere with appropriating the name. Erlandson had originally made it abundantly clear that he wasn’t happy about Love’s plans as he had not been involved in the album’s lengthy development, but Love claims to have buried the hatchet. “I don’t want to slam him, Erlandson,” she said. “I’m a big sharer. Inside the business I am not known for being a stinge, for sure. I’m not stingy in any way, I give a lot of publishing to everyone” – a claim which seems a little at odds with Love’s almost limitless capacity to tweet apparent gibberish about her messy financial (and personal) affairs.

Anyway, the latest rumoured release date for the album is April, but at the very least it seems it has yet to be mastered. Reading Love’s Twitter, which is not for the fainthearted, it seems she’s still writing songs that may or may not be tucked into the tracklist at the last minute. ‘Hole’ play a sold out show at London’s Shepherds Bush Empire on February 17 featuring guitarist Micko Larkin (ex-Larrikin Love), bassist Shawn Dailey and drummer Stu Fischer.

I almost don’t want to buy this album now – I am so sick of waiting for it. The fact that it still isn’t mastered and she is still writing songs for it suggests it will be much later than April, if ar all this year. Annoying.

I have lost all interest too. It’s embarrassing.
