Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"For decades now, Sonic Youth's stalwart bassist-guitarist Kim Gordon has been a beacon of cool, inspiring generations of girls to try to make their own noise. With Performing/Guzzling, a sumptious art book released by Rizzoli and Nieves, Gordon is now inspiring these same girls to make art." ~NYLON

"Performing/Guzzling functions more as a hard bound artist journal than a monograph filled with page after page of Gordon's ghost like watercolors, text paintings, lyrics/poetry, and photography. The watercolor works are by far the most accomplished, inspired by on-stage performances where the faces in the audience become a dreamy and ethereal blur of color... Performing/Guzzling is a must have book for both artist book enthusiasts and Sonic Youth fans alike!" ~Beautiful/Decay
