Live Through This

Last night, I decided I should finally come to terms with the reality that 85 percent of the people I know in NYC live in Brooklyn at this point so off I went to a bar where, at least at a somewhat unfashionably early hour, they decided that playing Hole’s Live Through This in its entirety would be a good idea:

At any rate, while this was going on it occurred to me that too much time spent in the mid-1990s listening to modern rock radio and watching MTV had utterly burned “Violet” and “Doll Parts” deep, deep, deep into my brain, that the rest of the album was totally unfamiliar. The non-single tracks have a less-produced, more riot grrl-y flavor. All of which seems like as good a time as any to link to the Melissa Auf der Maur blog.
