I've always been a huge Sonic Youth fan and will continue to be, despite their breakup. (never say never???) But it's also been really intriguing to see the upswing in visibility of and interest in the spectacular Kim Gordon, who has been performing in her new band-duo (with Bill Nace) Body/Head, and also with artist Jutta Koether often in museum contexts, such as here at the Moderna Museet in Stockholm in 2011--noisy arty fun--and more recently in conjunction with the travelling Mike Kelley retrospective. And are the second lives of indie icons via Twitter these days? Gordon has a very active Twitter feed, and has garnered lots of publicity for appearing on Lena Dunham's HBO series Girls. I was struck by the cool imagery on her tweets, such as below a superstar-bohemian garden party snapshot featuring Gordon, Michael Stipe, and the venerable William S. Burroughs. Yikes--several of my past obsessions compressed into a single photographic mashup!
