Kim e Thurston18 ottobre 2011
scritto da Sasha Frere-Jones per il New Yorker
Friday’s news that Sonic Youth’s Kim Gordon and Thurston Moore are separating is, for a self-selecting multi-generational bunch, as bad as hearing John and Yoko split up. Gordon and Moore were the couple who showed us how to remain artists, have a kid, and even how to get the hell of out of New York.
In a 2008 Spin interview, Michael Azerrad asked Moore about the marriage. He said:
There’s no secret. We’ve never sold each other out on anything. I can easily follow the allure of wanting to go out and be with the boys, and play industrial noise and smoke pot and drink, but nothing replaces the reality of our relationship. I can’t trade that for anything. I can’t think of how or where I’d be without Kim’s influence. And we’re like any couple that’s been together for close to thirty years. There’s a genuine psychophysical connection. Sometimes I feel things happening in me, and I know that something’s going on with her. When you’re married and you have that kind of connection, you become really spiritually, psychologically connected. We grew up together, in a way.
