Hole is back, sort of. For this iteration of the project, perpetually embattled typo machine Courtney Love has rounded up guitarist Micko Larkin, bassist Shawn Dailey and Stu Fischer on drums, i.e. no original Hole members, i.e. much to the chagrin of co-founder Eric Erlandson. On Thursday night, “Hole” did the Jonathan Ross show, a televised precursor to a few dates they’ll be doing in London (and eventually, SXSW). They’re promoting the forthcoming Nobody’s Daughter via a new tune, the Linda Perry and Billy Corgan co-written “Samantha.” And while it doesn’t take a high level of sobriety of mind or spirit for Courtney to convincingly sing like Courtney, she looks and sounds better than you might expect. Good enough to speak at Oxford, even (apparently).
