Kim Gordon on Life After Sonic YouthDownload audio (MP3)
Former Sonic Youth singer and guitarist Kim Gordon says that since she was five years old, all she ever wanted to be was an artist. Music, she says, was just an escape from the art world. Maybe so, but Sonic Youth's groundbreaking sound has influenced everyone from Nirvana to Russian-dissident band Pussy Riot. Sonic Youth disbanded in 2011, after Gordon's marriage to bandmate Thurston Moore ended. But she continues to perform, as well as to create and exhibit her visual art.
