“A friend of mine introduced me to Thurston Moore because she thought I would like him. He was playing with the tallest band in the world, the Coachmen. They were sort of like Talking Heads, jangly guitar, Feelies guitar. Anyway, it was love at first sight. His band broke up that night. And we started playing.” - Kim Gordon
Steve Irwin was a huge influence in my youth as he shaped the way I view exotic animals, so to see his son, Robert, carry on his father’s legacy with as much love and enthusiasm as his father did before him really just warms my heart.
“I never really thought of myself as a musician. I’m not saying Sonic Youth was a conceptual-art project for me, but in a way, it was an extension of Warhol. Instead of making criticism about popular culture, as a lot of artists do, I worked within it to do something.” - Kim Gordon
