Girl in a Band

  $29.99
Often described as aloof, Kim Gordon opens up as never before in 'Girl in a Band'. Telling the story of her family, 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 usher in-paving the way for Nirvana, Hole, Smashing Pumpkins and many other acts. But at its core, 'Girl in a Band' examines what partnership means - and what happens when it dissolves.
