Hole Rarities On The Way

July 31 [Updated 16:00 EDT] -- Hole fans overseas will be treated to "My Body, The Hand Grenade," a collection of rare or previously unreleased tracks compiled by guitarist Eric Erlandson.

The record's 14 cuts include Hole's first recording, 'Turpentine', taped in a L.A. basement in March 1990; three songs from Hole's "Unplugged' performance from Feb. '95; material gleaned from BBC sessions also recorded in 1995; and tracks from their first two singles, "Retard Girl" and "Dicknail."

Erlandson wrote the liner notes, bandmate Courtney Love was in charge of the artwork which includes photographs taken throughout the band's history. The record is due to be released by City Slang on September 29. American fans will have to settle for imported copies, at least for the time being. No American release has been scheduled.
