Movies: Hit So Hard

In 2007, Hole gay drummer Patty Schemel went up to her friend P. David Ebersole with a bunch of Hi8 tapes she shot over her years with the band. Amazing footage of Hole members Eric Erlandson, Melissa Auf der Maur, late bassist Kristen Pfaff and Courtney Love, her husband Kurt Cobain and daughter Frances Bean. In the tapes appeared also a line-up of female rockers, including Veruca Salt’s Nina Gordon, and drummers Debbi Peterson (The Bangles), Gina Schock (The Go-Go’s) and Kate Schellenbach (The Beastie Boys). Ebersole saw the tapes with the incredible behind the scenes feeling and decided to make a movie out of it. The result was the documentary film “Hit So Hard“, named after a Hole song. The film premiere was the first time Hole’s band members were in the same room after many years. But as Melissa stated: “We’re not here for Hole, we’re here because Patty’s still alive.” A very interesting insight to one of the most influential bands of the 90’s.
