INTERVIEW INTRODUCTION


Courtney Love is Lois Maffeo, who sings and plays guitar, and Pat Maley on drums. Both have spent a lot of time in Olympia, WA, although Lois lives in Washington, D.C. now. Like Olympian peers Beat Happening and Some Velvet Sidewalk, there is no bass player, though that's about as far as the similarities go, since Courtney Love are as soft as the other two are noisy. Lois has a remarkably pure voice that seems to float over her rudimentary acoustic guitar chords and the simple drumming, and her songs are about things like motorcycle boyfriends, sunny days, Goofus and Gallant-type relationships, Bridget Fonda, and falling in love. The end result is sparse, yet dynamic enough to remind me of the Marine Girls with slightly less songwriting variety. Live, Courtney Love covers Beat Happening's "Don't Mix the Colors," and Lois is a chatty, relaxed front person despite her admitted shyness when it comes to singing live. It's really something to see.
