Summary
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. 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 1960s and 1970s, her life in visual arts, her move to New York City, the men in her life, her marriage, her relationship with her daughter, her music, and her band. Gordon takes us back to the lost New York of the 1980s and 1990s, which 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 a girl to a woman in uncharted territory, highlighting unconventional music, art, and the meaning of partnership--and what happens when that identity dissolves
