Reading Festival Review - back cover, 3rd September 1994

1994 and another Reading Festival review. Note the Court in the Act column on page 33 as a source of great embarrassment to ET, oh and can someone answer Andrew Mueller’s question/mistaken caption (page 35) “Who the f*** is this?” even if it is 14 years too late. Come on…one of you must have slept with her.

Writers: Everett True, Andrew Mueller, Cathi Unsworth, Caitlin Moran, Sarra Manning, Dave Jennings, Dave Simpson, Ian Watson

Photographers: Tom Sheehan, Steve Gullick,Stephen Sweet, Matt Bright

Those who also turned up to get drunk: Allan Jones, Sharon O’ Connell, Simon Price

If you’ve been paying attention at the back you’ll know this one’s for Alex. Why not follow her on Twitter @loopingtheloop – she has a lovely turn of phrase – which, given she’s a journalist is probably to be expected.

Head like a cold…black as your bathroom mold…

“When it comes down to it, I just want someone to stick it in, y’know?”

Michael Mooney, where are you now?

Someday, you will ache like I ache.

It’s late. I am alone but the red wine is flowing so I thought I’d kill the time semi constructively and make sure something got posted for the month of December. Happy New Year to your all wherever in the world you happen to be. I’ll be in Copenhagen with any luck. God only knows where Courtney Love will be.

Hole in Sidelines 15th June 1991

Everett True profiles Hole in Sidelines. Taken from Melody Maker 15th June 1991.

“Courtney in her long and varied history (she’s only 24) has lived through more traumas than most of you f***ing lamebrains will experience in your life.”

Quite. If only Everett could have known then that she was just getting started. I remember when MM reported those first, very early, barely coherent USENET posts of hers around 1994 and she’s still fucking doing it (click Courtney Love -> Blog). Now click into the photos section if you dare. Finally reacquaint yourself with all Courtney’s uppers and downers via her extensive Wikipedia entry here.

Was looking around for something Nirvana related just so I could post this (below), which I saw for the first time this afternoon. Presumably this is well known material I’ve somehow missed but guessing it’ll be new to quite a few of you too. File under bizarre.

Highlights at
0.22 – Gary rips the T-Shirt from his hulking frame
1.26 – Gary does the can-can to ‘my libido..’
1.40 – Mark, surely not for the first time, drops to his knees and slowly deflates under the pressure of Gary’s punishing vocal
2.38 – Jason’s crushing Hank Williams style solo perforates every hymen within the first six rows of the stage
