Theoretical Girls, [Detail of note of lyrics for] "U.S. Mille" b/w "You Got Me" (7-inch), 1978, at The Pictures Generation, 1974-1984.  Photo: 16 Miles   [more]

"People pay to see others believe in themselves. Maybe people don’t know whether they can experience the erotic or whether it exists only in commercials..."   - Kim Gordon, "I'm Really Scared When I Kill in My Dreams," Artforum, 1983.

"I don't even know if it's true. But like Kim's performance of 'I Wanna Be Your Dog,' it was a scary thought. And I thought, this woman knows stuff that I don't know."   - Greil Marcus, InterviewAddicted to Noise, 1997.

I did not know that Kim Gordon got the title of her essay from the lyrics of a Theoretical Girls song.  Thank you, The Pictures Generation, 1974 - 1984, at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.  Also, how cool is the vintage, 1978 Scientology shout-out in "U.S. Mille"?

Listen: "You Got Me"
