Girl in a Band : A Memoir - Kim Gordon

Girl in a Band

A Memoir

Sorry, the book that you are looking for is not available right now.

We did a search for other books with a similar title, and found some results for you that may be helpful.

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.

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.

WRITE A REVIEW

A Great Read

4

I enjoyed this book, the insights in to the different musicians Gordon knows, has known and worked with. I would have liked, however, more information regarding the creative process behind writing the songs and albums. That would be super-interesting but it is a memoir, not an autobiography. Perhaps that will be the next endeavour for Gordon.
