Beschreibung von Audible

Editors Select, February 2015 - Kim Gordon: Artist, musician, and trail blazer for women of the post-punk generation. She is among the rare breed of artists who have made a mark on music and on popular culture...and yet she is not someone I'd consider a household name. Sonic Youth, her band, was always about the sound...in all it's wonderful dissonance - the personalities were secondary. In Girl in a Band, Kim gets personal: talking about the break-up of her marriage and her band when she and Thurston Moore split after 27-years together, and about her relationship with her daughter. It's a panoramic and atmospheric look at her life as opposed to a deep look into her psyche. I can't wait to hear her narrate this book, and I can't wait to hear what she comes up with next! —Tricia, Audible Editor

Inhaltsangabe

Kim Gordon, founding member of Sonic Youth, fashion icon, and role model for a generation of women, now tells her story - a memoir of life as an artist, of music, marriage, motherhood, independence, and as one of the first women of rock and roll, written with the lyricism and haunting beauty of Patti Smith's Just Kids.

Often described as aloof, Kim Gordon opens up as never before in Girl in a Band. Telling the story of her family, growing up in California in the '60s and '70s, her life in visual art, her move to New York City, the men in her life, her marriage, her relationship with her daughter, her music, and her band, Girl in a Band is a rich and beautifully written memoir.

Gordon takes us back to the lost New York of the 1980s and '90s that gave rise to Sonic Youth, and the alternative revolution in popular music. The band helped build a vocabulary of music - paving the way for Nirvana, Hole, Smashing Pumpkins, and many other acts. But at its core, Girl in a Band examines the route from girl to woman in uncharted territory, music, art career, what partnership means - and what happens when that identity dissolves.

Evocative and edgy, filled with the sights and sounds of a changing world and a transformative life, Girl in a Band is the fascinating chronicle of a remarkable journey and an extraordinary artist.
