Review: Hollywood Reporter

July 17, 1991 for CBGB’s, Monday, July 15.


Hole is a threatening, abrasive band, composed mostly of women, who owe most to the Sex Pistols and other ’70s punk. The band, particularly Courtney Love’s raw, primal scream of a voice, sounds considerably better on their upcoming debut disc. Hole became insufferably grating live after a couple of numbers. Sound problems contributed to its downfall.
