About Body/Head

Following the end of Sonic Youth, one of the projects Kim Gordon embarked on was Body/Head, a collaboration with respected experimental rock guitarist Bill Nace, who has also played with Chris Corsano as Vampire Belt, as well as with Jessica Rylan, Paul Flaherty, and Thurston Moore. The duo's free-flowing noise rock offered a more streamlined, updated version of Gordon's no wave roots and debuted in 2011 with Fractured Orgasm, a limited-edition cassette released by Ecstatic Peace. The following year, Body/Head issued a pair of recordings on the Belgian label Ultra Eczema, the single The Eyes, the Mouth/Night of the Ocean and a cover of the standard "Fever" for a compilation. Glare Luring Yo, a live album documenting a show with the like-minded Gate (a project of the Dead C's Michael Morley) also arrived that year on Feeding Tube. The band's full-length debut, 2013's Coming Apart, was a double album that offered a slightly more polished version of Body/Head's abstract approach. The following year, Gordon and Nace issued the 7" The Show Is Over/The Canyon. They returned in 2016 with No Waves, a collection of excerpts from their set at the 2014 Big Ears Festival in Knoxville, Tennessee. ~ Heather Phares
