solo art projects and more.
Bummed that Thurston cheated on her. Can see how a massive trust issue exists in the band now. Not counting on them getting together again...
not quite as heart-breaking as if the same situation had occurred within Yo La Tengo
Underscores why DiS doesn't do news any more http://thequietus.com/articles/12071-kim-gordon-elle-interview-journalism
ELLE's piece really is a great article.
why I linked to the Elle article, pretty much every other piece ignored most of what Kim was saying in favour of focusing on the break-up.
Thurston was there with the other woman.
That's about as comforting as going to see your dad on his weekend with you and spending it with his new wife.
It's been about 20 years since the Vanity Fair article on Courtney Love, I don't think Kim would ever be subject to a hatchet job from some tabloid hack but it's funny how the 'establishment' now deal with musicians at Kim's level now and how they properly embrace them as artists as opposed to wannabe rock stars/celebrities/opportunists.
Also, thinking back to something Thurston said ages ago about how they would have made more money by splitting up in '93 and reforming now than they have staying together, it's a bit 'be careful what you wish for'! Whatever activity the band does from hereon will be subject to a hell of a lot more interest/scrutiny. From a business perspctive they could keep it quiet for a couple of years and cash in but from a fans' perspective it's such a shame to lose that momentum the band had after such a great last record, can they ever recapture that?
But really, The Eternal? Ranaldo's contributions aside, I always thought that it sounded like the were just on auto-pilot. Selfishly, if they can work it out on a personal level I'd like to see them return for a final album just so that The Eternal isn't the end point of the SY canon.
It's funny, but for example Antenna is SY on total autopilot... but I love that song so much and in a different way to, say, some of the stuff they sleepwalked their way through on NYC Ghosts.
whatever the separation in years - the two characters and the way they chose/choose to interact with the public and media is completely different.
they were staying at the same hotel at Off Festival. awkz.
is the other woman?
Could be wrong though
it's Eva Prinz, the article is kind of irritating mainly because they cast Eva as the woman who ended Gordon's marriage but the information seem fairly legitimate.
was she previously seeing another member of the band?
didn't know that
