Courtney Love, Sydney 2014.
My photos from the Canberra gig on Saturday night. Setlist is out of whack but they played Drown Soda (!!) after the band only learning it at soundcheck that day, 20 Years In The Dakota (incl Hey Jude), Pacific Coast Highway and Courtney did Never Go Hungry Again as an acoustic encore.
I was front row with my girlfriend and Courtney held my hand and pulled me towards her during PCH. We also exchanged banter about Garbadge Man. Best fucking night of my life. I also got a rose!
She was in a great mood, looked amazing, chatted heaps to the audience (Born of sour milk and Australian filth!).
P.S. The ‘Honour’ song is called ‘In Your Honour’ and was written by Courtney’s guitarist Ginger Wildheart for her (as a kind of duet…) for his project G.A.S.S. Listen to it here.
I do hope you get to hear the Courtney song too. It’s called “In Your Honour” and is typically catchy rock n’ roll with an edge and a swaggering guitar riff. And she sings it great. I searched for her ideal range when writing the melody, and I think I got her perfect pitch, the one that makes the world seem golden again. When Courtney hits that register (Celebrity Skin/Violet) my skin bristles, and that’s no lie.
