Corgan's Role In New Hole Album Up In Air

June 18, 1997 12:00 AM ET

Is Billy Corgan off the new Hole project? "At this point, no one is really sure what his role will be [in producing the new album]," said Jim Merlis, Hole's publicist at Geffen Records. Merlis admitted that the band hasn't even gone into the studio to begin recording. At the earliest, they expect the album to be out in late fall. Courtney Love, Hole's singer, told MTV News at the premiere for Batman & Robin that she and Corgan had "burned each other out." Love is referring to their relationship in which Corgan would be the executive producer on the project. And according to Merlis, everything Love told MTV is absolutely true. By the way, he added, "we stand by our girl."

“Whoomp! (There It Is)”

Tag Team | 1993

Cecil Glenn — a.k.a., "D.C." — was a cook at Magic City, a nude dance club in Atlanta, when he first heard women shout "Whoomp — there it is!" Inspired by the party chant, he and partner Steve "Roll'n" Gibson wrote a song around it. Undaunted by label rejections, they borrowed $2,500 from Glenn's parents and pressed 800 singles, which quickly sold out in the Atlanta area. A record deal came soon after. Glenn said the song was meant for positive partying. "If you're going to say 'Whoomp there it is,' and you're doing something negative, we'd rather it not have come out of your mouth."
