Kim Gordon: la biografia


Il 24 febbraio via Dey Street Books (Harper Collins). Ha finalmente una data d’uscita l’attesa biografia di Kim Gordon che ripercorre la sua vita partendo dall’infanzia fino ai giorni nostri (rottura dei Sonic Youth compresa). ‘Girl In A Band’ è il titolo del libro, e non poteva essere altrimenti, che viene così presentato: “Often described as aloof, Kim Gordon truly opens up in Girl in a Band. Telling the story of her childhood, her life in art, her move to New York City, her love affairs, her marriage, her relationship with her daughter, and her band, this is a rich and beautifully written memoir. At the heart of the book is the examination of what partnership means—and what happens when it dissolves. An atmospheric look at the New York of the 80s and 90s that gave rise to Sonic Youth, as well as the Alternative revolution in popular music that Sonic Youth helped usher in, paving the way for Nirvana, Hole, Smashing Pumpkins and many other acts. One of the most revered people in modern rock and roll, Kim Gordon is also a highly regarded fashion icon, visual artist, and the source of much fascination”.
