Pitchfork is reporting that the first couple of indie rock, Kim Gordon and Thurston Moore of Sonic Youth, are separating. The couple has a 17-year-old daughter and has been married since 1984. As far as Sonic Youth is concerned, the band’s future is “uncertain.”
This separation is almost as surprising as the Susan Sarandon / Tim Robins split in late 2009. I figured these two would be together forever. Hell, if they can’t make it, who can? I think Pitchfork’s Amy Phillips’ put it best–
So.... yeah. I no longer believe in true love.
Here are a few of my favorite Sonic Youth videos.
