I think [Coco Moore] is possibly reactionary toward being anything in the public eye. When she was born, it was announced on MTV, you know. So that’s slightly off-putting for her. Kim and I never had any involvement with any illicit behavior. Even on the tour buses she grew up on, we were watching John Candy movies and wearing our pajamas. When we were on Lollapalooza in ’95, when she was just learning how to walk, there were all these completely insane bands around us: Courtney Love, Hole, the Jesus Lizard. But onstage, they play the most straight-ahead post-punk rock music. Then Sonic Youth would come out, and we play the most fucked-up music. We’re squares; the most straight band is playing the most unstraight music. Maybe that’s where we put our fucked-up-ness: in the art.

Kim Gordon getting licked by a horse on the Lower East Side late one night: It was just one of those moments that is the magic of New York. You can be at something like an art dinner, that is so refined, and then be walking in the street at night and something like this happens. It was a police horse and I poked my head in its trailer to look at it, and it licked my face. It was so thrilling! You would think a police horse would be sort of beaten down by the city. There’s something so mysterious about a horse anyway, and this one was so beautiful.

I may be a style icon, to the demographic of alien-geek, record-collector, free-jazz-loving, six-foot-six, skinny, pear-shaped 56-year-old men. I might be a style icon, yeah.

Today I interviewed this guy for a magazine piece. He had kind things to say about my book, which was very gratifying to hear.

Kill Yr Idols….with tie dye. (This didn’t turn out as good as the Black Flag shirt. Shouldn’t have used blue with the blue design.)
