Courtney Love has dubbed her new all-girl punk side-project "Bastard." The Hole< frontwoman has tapped Veruca Salt's Louise Post, who has band a pal since Veruca Salt opened up for Hole in 1994, to play guitar. Also onboard are former Hole drummer Patty Schemel, and bassist Gina Crosley from Chicago's Rockit Girl, who was recruited on Post's recommendation, after Post produced Rockit Girl's most recent album.
Love confirmed the lineup on her Web site, www.holemusic.com, explaining that the new band will enter a Los Angeles studio next week to beginning writing the album for Epitaph Records. "We're hoping to make a South of France, AC/DC, fuck-off record," Love explained.
