Kim Gordon Sounds Off

Some years ago, a woman Gordon declines to name became a part of the Sonic Youth world, first as the girlfriend of an erstwhile band member and later as a partner on a literary project with Moore. Eventually, Gordon discovered a text message and confronted him about having an affair. They went to counseling, but he kept seeing the other woman. "We never got to the point where we could just get rid of her so I could decide what I wanted to do," Gordon says. "Thurston was carrying on this whole double life with her. He was really like a lost soul." Moore moved out. Gordon stayed home and listened to a lot of hip-hop. "Rap music is really good when you’re traumatized," she says.

Here is Thurston talking about his 2005 book, Mix-Tapes

Trying to control sharing through music is like trying to control an affair of the heart — nothing will stop it.

He kept cheating while they went to counseling. Oh dude.

“I never really thought of myself as a musician,” Gordon says. “I’m not saying Sonic Youth was a conceptual-art project for me, but in a way it was an extension of Warhol. Instead of making criticism about popular culture, as a lot of artists do, I worked within it to do something.”

This is one my favourite quote on the interview.

Give it another 10 years and we'll find out he's just another Jimmy Savile.

Is the aforementioned Thurston-lover this lady? Abby Banks?

Thurston helped her with the book PUNK HOUSE: Interiors in Anarchy

'Sonic Gossip' has never been so literal!

halgreen 04.22.2013 03:42 PM

I thought it would be Eva Prinz...
Besides all that I wonder if the debut Body/Head album discussed in the interview is the same as the LP/EP release.

From NY Times review of Punk House,

As Thurston Moore, a member of the art-house alt-punk bank Sonic Youth, who helped Ms. Banks find a publisher for her work and contributed an essay to the book, said recently: “It’s just a completely liberated aesthetic.”

Rob Instigator 04.22.2013 03:47 PM

I am going to use "find a publisher" as my new euphemism for makin' sweet love.

Genteel Death 04.22.2013 03:48 PM

Where is knox when you need her? Rob is already blaming the destruction of Sonic Youth on Phantom Yoko.

Rob Instigator 04.22.2013 03:59 PM

Don't tie me to the knox train tracks man! Kim is the one blaming! I am just researching!

Rob Instigator 04.22.2013 03:59 PM

If Kim G wants a May-December romance I am here. She is 59. I am 39. The difference will be made up for by my balls.

You immediately put the emphasis and curiosity on the woman TM cheated on KG with, rather than on the feelings of the cheated and their relationship with their tormentor. You jumped on the Deathscalator. IT'S TOO LATE ROB.

Rob Instigator 04.22.2013 04:15 PM

the tribulations of the Instigator.

Kim G will rise above! RISE ABOVE! She is my Sonic Goddess!

Genteel Death 04.22.2013 04:31 PM

That's fine, Rob. What do you have to say about Thurston Moore being cheating scum though?

I do not support his base actions. He is not Don Draper.
