Sonic Youth was the band that paved the road that would be followed by the Smashing Pumpkins, Nirvana and the grunge scene.
Girl in A Band by Kim Gordon is a tale from the heart of Sonic Youth and it’s become one of the music world’s most respected works.
Why We Love Girl In A Band
People said Kim was too aloof, so she sat down and wrote the kind of autobiography that opens every wound and detail of a life well-lived.
She shows us how a musical and personal partnership can change the world and how it feels to watch that partnership collapse before your eyes too.
Her cradle-to-now approach means you don’t miss a moment of Kim’s journey to the top and then down again.

This memoir is one of the most insightful, raw, articulate and frankly, inspirational works we’ve ever read and even if you’re not a Sonic Youth fan, you’re guaranteed to get something out of reading it.

Sonic Youth was a visionary act. Nirvana and the grunge scene could not have existed without them. Kim Gordon’s book from the soul of Sonic Youth is unmissable. Check it out.
