The latest Art Decades release from Confingo finds Dave Haslam investigating a young Courtney Love in Liverpool. One of half of Rare Mags, also at the age of 17, found himself in the Stockport branch of Our Price asking for Hole albums, only to see the member of staff type "Whole" in to the till system, resulting predictably in no Courtney fix on that occasion.
"At the age of 17 – before Hole, before meeting Kurt Cobain – Courtney Love took a trip to Liverpool. She describes the months she spent in the city in 1982 as ‘one of the most important things of my existence’. In ‘Searching For Love’, the third book in his Art Decades series, Dave Haslam explores the stories she’s told of her stay, talks to people who remember her, and celebrates the Liverpool music scene that attracted and inspired her."
