Gordon separated from Moore in 2011, and Sonic Youth have drifted to a halt. "It's hard to say when the life of a band starts and stops… but playing music together is an act of trust. When that's broken, it's impossible to continue."
Wow.
It's nice to see an interview with her, but I wish they had focused on her new music a bit more.
---Edit---
I see it's in the fashion section now, so I guess that makes sense.

I'm really surprised at the dearth of comments resulting from this quote, but this is the most incriminating statement by any band member - by far - on the subject. Ouch. When there's big money involved (Coachella, Bonnaroo, ATP, etc) you can never say never, but Sonic Youth may have already played their last gig...

Well, it's a pretty decisive comment, but pretty much only serves to confirm the rumour that is already flying around the internet. So no huge revelation.

Some hope??

http://www.npr.org/2013/02/17/172096...a-light-moving

It's tempting to view Chelsea Light Moving as a low-stakes act of liberation following the indefinite hiatus of Sonic Youth after 30 years — and, by extension, Moore's separation from longtime wife and bandmate Kim Gordon, though the two continue to work together musically. But Thurston Moore has always been free to pursue musical whims like the ones he chases here, whether that means making graceful solo albums like 2011's Demolished Thoughts or unleashing last fall's bonkers collaboration with Gordon and Yoko Ono.

Do you think this is an informed comment or do you think the author of this write-up believes the YOKOKIMTHURSTON collaboration happened AFTER their seperation?

I think that the author believes that Yokokimthurston was recorded after the separation. The way that it's written doesn't sound very "informed" to me. :/

EDIT
about this, just wanna write:
Whatever, It's wonderful see Kim, Thurston, Lee and Steve doing their b'sides etc;. It's really great. (special Kim to me.)
Now this "stress" around & about S.Y. end or no end, sucks.

I don't know if any of you guys follow Kim on Twitter but she says some quite sad things sometimes.

On that subject I saw Thurston with his new girlfriend in Brighton the other day, she is some young poetess who works at Cafe Oto in London. She always seems to be dressed in black. Normally, Thurston seems to be watching bands when he is at gigs (or the ones I have seen him at) but at this one he was just sat in the corner making out with her, the eternal teenager.

There's something to be said for, at some point in your life, growing the hell up. Oh well. Humans gonna human.

It's been in the back of my mind that SY are done, as far as being an entity that records new music and tours behind it. That statement by Kim was jarring, less for the content and more the fact she actually said it in an interview.

You can't deny that you would like to know a bit more about why they've finished.

True but its not our business to know unless they make it known. However its becoming more plainly obvious now from these Thurston sightings and now this comment by Kim in that interview... it is now implying the obvious of the situation.

If only he was boning the worm lady, we could have at least hoped for major improvements in his attempts at poetry.

well, actually thurston told us everything even before the breakup: if you listen again (and carefully) to demolished thoughts it will appear evident. i realised this in november 2011... i wrote something on an italian forum at that time: i'd like to share, but i'd need a lot of time and effort for a good translation... if you want i can try...

I hate to even get into this discussion, since it is a private matter, but I feel the need to reply. What do the Thurston sightings imply? It's been a year and a half since he and Kim split.

As for Kim's comment, it implies cheating, but none of us know the whole story. I just don't see how anything in this situation can be obvious to us outsiders, based on what has been discussed in this thread.
