Bastard, Courtney Loveís new, all girl, rock powerhouse have completed demoing the groups new material, though the group has been reduced to two members. Veruca Salt guitarist Louise Post and ex-Rockit Girl bassist Gina Crosley have left Love to work on the upcoming Veruca Salt album, due out next summer. Not mentioning the parting of ways, Love describes the new stuff as "raw and really rock." She said, "I have really high standards, and it's not a joke anymore. I love Kittie, but it needs to be Zeppelin-level. And if we can't kick Fred Durst's ass, I don't want to do it. I'm not happy unless it's going to be fucking great." Bastard is now looking for two hot bitches who like to curse and drink too much, and, oh yeah, play music.
