Courtney Love has revealed she is a massive fan of Savages and wants to tour with the British band.

The former Hole singer singled out 'Shut Up', the opening song from the band's debut album 'Silence Yourself', which came out this May, for special praise.

"I was listening to this incredible new band - it's mostly girls, out of England - called the Savages. They are amazing," Love said in an interview with Vanity Fair. "There is a song called 'Shut Up'. It's kind of very Siouxsie Sioux. The beginning is all spoken word and it's brilliant, about disciplining yourself and not being distracted. And they're gorgeous! Shaved heads."

Love then added, slipping in a dig at Katy Perry: "Anyway, I would love to tour with them. I just wrote them a gushy girl fan letter because I had been listening to their stuff all day and I get so excited whenever I see a new female artist that's good and doesn’t have fireworks coming out of her tits."

Meanwhile, Love also revealed that she wants to call her forthcoming memoir, due this Christmas, Girl With The Most Cake in reference to one of Hole's most famous lyrics.

Describing how the memoir is likely to turn out, she explained: "You know, it ain't going to be [Patti Smith's memoir] Just Kids. When I get older and greyer and really can sit down and reflect and maybe have a little spring cottage on the Thames in Oxfordshire, I can get out an old typewriter and start bashing away. That's not what this is. This is more like the book I aspire to, which I have on my bed stand, which is Russell Brand's My Booky Wook - which is the lamest name ever."

Meanwhile, Love has recently revealed that she is planning to release a new solo album, titled Died Blonde, to coincide with the publishing of her memoir at the end of the year.
