Kim Gordon

Girl in a Band by Kim Gordon Book 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, 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.

Kool Thing 😎. I have recently moved from New York and it was interesting reading about what the places I frequented used to be in Kim’s era of New York. Enthralling read.

Exciting. Yay

Why did it have to end?. I devoured this book like I was starving. It ended way too soon.

Girl In A Band. Well, this book was frigging amazing. I always had a feeling that Kim's reticence grew from shyness and lack of self-promotion. I felt like I was there- the California of her youth, the NYC of her coming of age, the dread of the discovery of Thurston's affair...she has a real gift for saying a lot and setting a scene with a few carefully chosen words. I'd read her grocery list. VIVA LA KIM!

Sweet read. Kim Gordon is an amazing artist. This book gives a voice to many struggles that loom in my life (female in film) or really any females or artist. "Girl in a Band" was a therapeutic and motivational read for myself, thanks Kim for being such a strong, real, and cool female!

I can't stop thinking about this book. Listening to the audio book is amazing. I love hearing Gordon's thoughts about life and her story in her voice. Planning to finish the book by reading the rest, because I also want to see the way she writes. Lovely words from the mind of an amazing artist.
