Missaligned 088: Girl in a Band

featured / Missaligned / News / Podcast / September 13, 2017

Missaligned Reads is back this week! This season, our book pick was Kim Gordon’s Girl in a Band. It was a fascinating read for both of us. It dove deep into Kim Gordon’s life pre-Sonic Youth, as well as life in the band. A common theme in the book deals with this quote that Gordon seemed to receive a lot: “What’s it like to be a girl in a band?”

Notable Quotes:

Chapter 21:

  • “The need to be a woman out in front never entered my mind at all until we signed with Geffen.”
  • “Culturally we don’t allow women to be as free as they would like, because that is frightening. We either shun those women or deem them crazy.”
  • Page 241: “Even when you’re in the public eye, you never understand how you come across to other people.”
