In a new interview, Courtney Love reveals that she is in discussions for Hole to stage a reunion. This past spring marked the 25th anniversary of the bands’ landmark album Live Through This (DGC). The band, Love, Eric Erlandson, Patty Schemel, and Melissa Aur Der Mar, have flirted with a reunion for years, but been unable to commit for various reasons. Here’s hoping it works out.

Tim “Ripper” Owens and Rudy Sarzo are bangin’ in A New Revenge. The new album, Enemies and Lovers (Golden Robot Records), serves up some good old-fashioned Rock n’ Roll-cum-Heavy Metal hybrid that is sure to get played on repeat for years to come. The songs are timeless in they have a distinctly “Classics” sound already. The music is infectious and it’s easy to sing along with; so many of the songs sound wickedly familiar – just little snippets here and there of guitar work or the cadence of the lyrics.

Captain Marvel finally came out last weekend to smash success, shattering first week expectations. Set in the 1990s the film features an amazing soundtrack to match the film full of pop culture references like Blockbuster Videos, Gameboys, Troll Dolls and that dope vintage Nine Inch Nails shirt (the band is now selling a collabo item). In addition to the Elastica hit song ‘Connection’ heard in the trailer, the film features memorable 1990s tracks by megastars Nirvana, Garbage, Hole, Beck, R.E.M., Salt N Pepper featuring En Vogue, TLC, and No Doubt. The film also features other artists like Heart, Lita Ford, The Hunting Party, The Marvelettes in addition to The Captain Marvel Official Soundtrack Album score by Pinar Toprak. No word yet if the popular songs will be released as a soundtrack yet. The next film in the MCU series from Disney/Marvel Studios is Avengers: Endgame next month.

Do you remember where you were on September 24th, 1991? That is, if you were even alive, since it was a quarter century ago. I was in class at community college in my home town. As usual I was hanging out on the soccer field, guitar in hand, hanging with my usual band of freaks, geeks, stoners, punks, metalheads, and the like. The buzz around campus was this song ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit,’ that was not only all over MTV, but also becoming an actual hit song on the radio.
Having spent part of 2014 as a member of Hole frontwoman Courtney Love‘s touring band, the very prolific Ginger Wildheart has confirmed details of his 50th birthday shindig, to take place at London, Kentish Town HMV Forum on 17th December 2014. The venue was the scene of The Wildhearts first London headline show as an album band twenty years ago, the very same gig where Ginger wore a white tuxedo in honour of his mother’s birthday, and the video for ‘Suckerpunch’ was filmed – obviously a venue close to the Geordie in Wonderland’s heart!
One of the most successful crowd-funded artists of all time, Ginger will be playing hits from his many projects, including the Wildhearts, his solo albums and Silver Ginger 5 and will be joined by many (as yet unannounced) guest appearances.
In addition, Ginger has also announced that on 2nd February 2015, he will be releasing a brand new song, co-written with Miss Love, ‘Honoured‘, a live version of which is has been released on Youtube, and can be viewed below:
And, as if that isn’t enough, Ginger has a new online fanclub, and the single is currently available through Ginger’s new multimedia fan site GASS (Ginger • Associated • Secret • Society) and was released on itunes on the 1st December 2014. GASS is a multi-tier fan club for Ginger Wildheart fans. By signing up you gain access to exclusive content including a year’s supply of new Ginger songs (36 in all!), and much more!
