No wonder Sonic Youth members and Ryan Adams get along so well: they all have a brilliantly unrelenting muse. Between Thurston Moore’s upcoming book, solo album, Jandek show, tributes, Lee Ranaldo’s own art exhibitions and Steve Shelley’s new band, it’s getting hard to even keep up with Sonic Youth side-projects as they come through the wire. Here’s the latest update from the Kim Gordon camp:
Rizzoli New York will publish Gordon’s new multimedia art book Performing/Guzzling, reports Art Info (via The Daily Swarm), a collection of watercolors, paintings, photographs, and poetry based on “[w]hat she sees when looking at her audience while performing.”
“Looking out into the audience,” Gordon writes, “light comes from the projector at the back of the hall… They appear as a collective mood… I wish I had a camera to record [what] it looks like.”
