hitsohard1.jpgMy friend Matt Momchilov (artist, Hole superfan, and guitarist for the only all-gay Hole cover band I know of, Butthole) just interviewed ex-Hole drummer Patty Schemel about her new documentary, Hit So Hard, for SF Weekly.

Today she walks dogs for a living and has a family, but the movie focuses on the Hole years, which turned dark due to addiction and music-industry sexism. Patty came out publicly as lesbian in a 1995 issue of Rolling Stone.

The interview covers life with Kurt Cobain, Courtney Love, reality TV, and the latest, mostly-loathed incarnation of Hole, which is Courtney plus "a bunch of dudes."

The movie premieres in San Francisco this Friday. Trailer after the jump.
