Biography

See also “Kim Gordon, Ikue Mori, & DJ Olive”. There were two separate projects, one with DJ Olive and one without.*

Kim Gordon (guitar & vocals) & Ikue Mori (electronics) toured in 2012 [1]. Kim Gordon, a female influence for the riot grrrl movement out of Olympia, WA in the 1990s [2], was with highly talented & popular no wave band Sonic Youth in the 1980s & Ikue Mori performed as a drummer for no wave band DNA in the late 1970s [1]. Since then she has experimented with drum machines and has collaborated with several other artists and has done solo work [4]

Gordon lived most of her early life in Los Angeles, U.S.—her father was a sociology professor and her mother was a “a homemaker with creative tendencies.” Gordon attended a progressive elementary school that was attached to the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) and, in 2013, she provided a description from her time there: ““It was learn by doing. So we were always making African spears and going down to the river and making mud huts, or skinning a cowhide and drying it and throwing it off the cliff at Dana Point.” [3]
After her high school years, Gordon attended the Otis Art Institute of Los Angeles County and was briefly a student at York University in Toronto, Canada, where she played in her first band. [3]

Ikue Mori was born and raised in Japan. She says she had little interest in music before hearing punk rock. In 1977, she went to New York City, initially for a visit, but she fell into the music scene, and has remained in New York since.

    "It's not just Kim Gordon, Ikue Mori, it's 'Kim Gordon, Ikue Mori & DJ Olive' people." Uniform > edit the bio then. There's two different projects listed, one with DJ Olive and one without. See "Kim Gordon, Ikue Mori & DJ Olive"; on that page it says there were two projects, one with DJ Olive and one without.
