Over 10 years have passed since the release of The Eternal, Sonic Youth's final album, and the subsequent breakup of one of the most distinctive, visceral and formative bands of the past few decades. Kim Gordon reflects on this period, which kickstarted in the early 80s when she formed the band alongside guitar wizards Thurston Moore and Lee Ranaldo, in her bestselling title Girl in a Band, closing the book (as well as a fundamental chapter of her life) with a statement. "I know it sounds like I'm someone else entirely now, and I guess I am​." 

The break–up of the cult noise–rock band (preceded by the break–up of Gordon's and Moore's marriage) gave her the space to pursue writing, film and, above all, her visual art endeavours and experimental noise projects Body/Head (with guitarist Bill Nace) and later Glitterbust (with Alex Knost of Tomorrows Tulips). In 2019, Gordon's first ever solo album No Home Record comes out of the blue, a vibrant album full of hefty corrosive beats, noisy textures, dissonant guitars and fragmented lyrics, inspired by no wave, 90s hip hop, footwork, trap, free jazz, and contemporary avant–garde electronics. "No Home Record functions almost as a non-site-specific musical installation, translating the experience of the empty spirit of a non-place spreading like the sprawl into the territory of people’s lives, erasing, uprooting, purging them of history. It is both liberating and isolating.​ [...] Gordon's bet is that the people are ready for weirdness, that the world can embrace its complexities. And the only way is forward," wrote The Quietus.

This year, Kim Gordon follows up with her sophomore record, The Collective, out March 8 via Matador. Recorded in her native Los Angeles, The Collective continues Gordon's collaboration with producer Justin Raisen (Lil Yachty, John Cale, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Charli XCX, Yves Tumor). "On this record, I wanted to express the absolute craziness I feel around me right now," sums up the artist, taking the album on tour around Europe in summer, stopping at MeetFactory on July 2nd. Tickets for the show will be available via MeetFactory & GoOut, starting on March 8.

Opening the night will be Lambrini Girls, Phoebe Lunny and Lilly Macieira, a Brighton-based duo who have a strong artistic bond over their creative common ground: hot button societal issues combined with a biting, tongue-in-cheek lyrical style all their own. „And so they set about addressing all these issues and more via the medium of fiery, three-minute punk scorchers - music that is virtually unignorable, intensely powerful, and utterly memorable.“ (— DIY Mag)
