OK so I’m in this group chat right? and I’m talking to these people and one of them finds out about George’s old band and he starts sending us links and I don’t think he has a Tumblr so I might as well post them because someone’s gonna it might as well be me. Apparently George was in this old band called Beats and baby miso. They’re actually pretty good but the camera quality shit because it was like 2010, but trust me that’s definitely George.

Courtney Love prior to Hole was in a band called Sugar Babylon in Portland with friends Ursula Wehr (later of Candy 500 who played with Hole during a date on the Live Through This Tour in Portland) and Robin Barbur.
Robin and Courtney left the USA around 1981 to go visit Courtney’s dad Hank Harrison in Ireland. After Courtney and her dad had a falling out (and a photo shoot with Robin lol) Courtney went to Liverpool to hang out with Julian Cope (of the Teardrop Explodes) and watch bands like Echo and The Bunnymen.
Apart from stripping throughout the 1980s Courtney also was in Faith No More around 1984ish and recorded some demos with them prior to them deciding they didn’t want a female singer.
She joined Sugar Babydoll with Kat Bjelland (Babes in Toyland) and Jennifer Finch (L7) as well as Janis Tanaka (later in a late line up of L7) and another girl whose name is not certain. They lived in San Francisco and played one show and recorded one demo tape. Jane Weems legendary San Francisco punk drummer also played in Sugar Babydoll briefly.
That demo is referred to as Pagan Babies which is actually a band Kat had after Courtney left to go audition for Sid and Nancy among other things.
