Courtney Love – Uncrushworthy 7”K, 1990
Acquired: Love Garden, Used, 2007
It’s sad that I always have to preface the first transmissions from Lois Maffeo as “Not THAT Courtney Love.” This first Courtney Love 7” is about as twee as it gets. Ramshackle guitar strums and drums, airy vocals singing nearly tuneless melodies over the void. I don’t know when reality punched me in the face, because listening to these clumsy songs about crushes and hurt feelings I’m just like “Ungggggg.” And I distinctly remember that I used to like this 7” but I can’t remember how.
