Sleater-Kinney’s Carrie Brownstein Announces New Memoir Slated for This Fall
With Sleater-Kinney’s highly anticipated reunion album, ‘No Cities to Love,’ just around the corner, guitarist Carrie Brownstein has announced that she will release a memoir detailing her experiences with the punk trio. The memoir is expected to arrive fall of 2015.
Brownstein told NME that the forthcoming memoir will cover her time in Sleater-Kinney with her bandmates Corin Tucker and Janet Weiss, from their beginnings with their 1994 self-titled debut up through their hiatus following their last album, 2005’s ‘The Woods.’
While the book will explore Brownstein's music career, she says it will not include her work with comedian Fred Armisen on the sketch comedy show, ‘Portlandia.’
“It pretty much ends with Sleater-Kinney going on hiatus, and a little bit of leading on from that,” she said in the interview. “But it doesn’t even really go onto ‘Portlandia.’”
“Because it’s more about my journey to becoming just a musician and -- I mean, I don’t consider myself a musician -- but becoming a creative person,” she went on to explain. “‘Portlandia’ just seemed like a whole other, I don’t know … It’s in there but not in the same detail as like, my childhood or touring or anything like that.”
Before the arrival of Brownstein’s memoir, Sleater-Kinney’s eighth album, ‘No Cities to Love,’ will drop on Jan. 19.
