About this site
Bernadine
is a comprehensive database of the musical projects of Courtney Love and Kat Bjelland. The site's title is an eponym of the Pagan Babies' song. The site was created and is maintained by Martin Donohoe -- who also runs The Hole Studio Chronology -- and was created for a number of reasons. The first was to clear up the large amount of misinformation about Bjelland/Love musical incarnations. The second was to bring a new resource to Hole/Babes in Toyland fans and collectors, and the third was... for fun!
