Published Mar 22, 2011As previously reported, former Hole drummer Patty Schemel has had her tumultuous life story featured in a documentary called Hit So Hard: The Life and Near-Death Story of Patty Schemel. The film premiered at SXSW earlier this month and is said to include a great deal of candid footage of Schemel's bandmate, the ever-crazy Courtney Love, alongside her husband, Kurt Cobain.
According to NME, the documentary features a great deal of candid home footage following Cobain and Love that was filmed by Schemel. This reportedly includes a rare scene where the couple are playing a never-before-heard song called "Stinking of You."
Discussing the last year of Cobain's life in the film, Love is also quoted as saying, "Kurt used to hang around us 'cause he hated his band."
A wide release for Hit So Hard hasn't been revealed yet, nor has any news of a DVD release. However, when the film premiers at NYC's Museum of Modern Art on March 28, Hole members Melissa Auf der Maur and Eric Erlandson will be in attendance, alongside Love and Schemel.
