Love reunites with Auf Der Maur, Erlandson and Schemel

Add your comment »

Courtney Love has told The Quietus that she, Melissa Auf Der Maur, Eric Erlandson and Patty Schemel have put aside their differences and are currently rehearsing her new material. The four musicians last recorded together on 1998's Celebrity Skin, and disbanded in 2002.

"I started playing with Patty and Melissa and Eric, just to see how that was," Love told The Quietus. "We already played like three or four times in the last week." Love is planning to release a new single, 'Wedding Day', in support of her upcoming May tour of the UK.

Petra Davis talked to the musician at length last night (Tuesday) in London for a full length feature coming soon on the Quietus. Courtney Love Tour Dates:

Erlandsen was actually talented though to what end? Hilarious that decades of dorks fawning over the ersatz 'sex appeal' of "Auf der Mar" has brought her full circle back to... this. You go, girl!

On the year we commemorate the death of Kurt Cobain, this happens.

» the latest, since Courtney Love's Hole stirred up Nirvana with "Live Through This", hardly anyone believes Rock to be a male domain...«

Personally I prefer Live Through This to Kurt Cobain being dead, but each to their own.

Hole for me was always the better band, Live Through This and Pretty on the Inside were underrated albums. Rubbish band live though.

Courtney Love is great but I am not sure if these people are compatible.
