In an exclusive in ELLE’s May issue, Sonic Youth’s Kim Gordon talks candidly about her next chapter, and what really happened between her and Thurston Moore.
It was time for some gossip on On Almost Every Topic: the breakup between Thurston Moore and Kim Gordon. I’ll listen to a couple of songs by Sonic Youth during my flight tomorrow. And some Alice Cooper songs of course.
Although the band have not issued any formal statements about breaking up, I think there is not much change that Sonic Youth will be playing live any time soon. To my surprise Lee Ranaldo recently issued a rather traditional album with pop songs. Contributors to the album include former Sonic Youth members Bob Bert and Jim O’Rourke, Wilco guitarist Nels Cline, and keyboardist John Medeski.
Finally some gossip on On almost every topic! This is the statement from their record label’s representative:
Musicians Kim Gordon and Thurston Moore, married in 1984, are announcing they have separated. Sonic Youth, with both Kim and Thurston involved, will proceed with its South American tour dates in November. Plans beyond that tour are uncertain. The couple has requested respect for their personal privacy and does not wish to issue further comment.
