She says the book won't dwell on her comedy series 'Portlandia'
Sleater-Kinney‘s Carrie Brownstein is set to release her memoir this autumn.
The musician and Portlandia star spoke to NME about the book, confirming that “it pretty much ends with Sleater-Kinney going on hiatus, and a little bit of leading on from that. But it doesn’t even really go onto Portlandia“.
When asked why she decided to cap the book there, she replied: “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. 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. Steve Martin has this book called Born Standing Up – it’s such a great book, and it’s like, here it is all the way up to SNL. Or before that, it’s just really his circus act.”
Sleater-Kinney release their new album ‘No Cities To Love’ on January 19. The band will tour America in February before arriving in Europe in March, taking in London, Manchester and Glasgow. See below for full tour dates.
Sleater-Kinney released seven albums between 1995 and 2005, with their self-titled debut album being followed by ‘Call The Doctor’, ‘Dig Me Out’, ‘The Hot Rock’, ‘All Hands On The Bad One’ and ‘One Beat’. The band’s last album, ‘The Woods’, was released in 2005.
