Kim Gordon (formerly of Sonic Youth) has a memoir called Girl in a Band out Februrary 24th, and a new excerpt has been shared in which Gordon claims Lana Del Rey "doesnít even know what feminism is" among other harsh words:
"Today we have someone like Lana Del Rey, who doesnít even know what feminism is, who believes women can do whatever they want, which, in her world, tilts toward self-destruction, whether itís sleeping with gross old men or getting gang raped by bikers. Equal pay and equal rights would be nice. Naturally, itís just a persona. If she really truly believes itís beautiful when young musicians go out on a hot flame of drugs and depression, why doesnít she just off herself?"

ELLE magazine recently did a profile of Kim Gordon, formerly of Sonic Youth. In the article she talks about the band's legacy, what she's been up to since the band entered a hiatus, and sheds some light on the details of her split with frontman Thurston Moore that triggered the hiatus. You can read it here.

In 1999, Sonic Youth's tour bus was stolen, and the band lost all of their gear, much of it highly modified and irreplaceable. This week, however, two of the guitars that were stolen have shown up and been returned to the band.
