    Indie rock's first couple is calling it quits.

    Thurston Moore and Kim Gordon, married since 1984 and performers together in influential noise-rockers Sonic Youth since 1981, announced their separation via a Matador Records rep on Friday, according to Spin.

    "Musicians Kim Gordon and Thurston Moore, married in 1984, are announcing they have separated. Sonic Youth, with both Kim and Thurston involved, will proceed with its South American tour dates in November. Plans beyond that tour are uncertain. The couple has requested respect for their personal privacy and does not wish to issue further comment," the rep said.

    Moore's Twitter account has not been updated since Sept. 27, when he announced new European tour dates in support of his latest solo album, "Demolished Thoughts."

    The rock couple has one child, 17-year-old daughter Coco Hayley Gordon Moore. Sonic Youth released its most recent album, "The Eternal," in 2009, and released its score to the French film "Simon Werner a Disparu" as part of its SYR series earlier this year.

    I am pretty shocked. And pretty bummed, which is weird because I don't know them obviously. But still. Weird.

    you're just mad bc on skid row you found out that black people are less bug-ridden than crackers? right?

    how's that life where nobody on earth loves you going?

    this is a totally weird white people incidence that i was shocked that i gave one single fuck about.

    but only half their music is godawful.

    although i'll probably forget all about it by tmw.

    Surprised it didn't happen sooner, although he's probably been cheating on her for years.

    Kind of rich and kind of famous homely guys like that are never content with their homely wives.

    It was probably one of those things where he was fine with the companionship but wanted to fuck hot young 37 year old Sonic Youth fans. And she was the antisex even before menopause. Sorry, but life is too short to be fucking just one slot.

    If they aren't mature enough for an open marriage, it's probably for the best they broke up.

    i think it's sad too.

    the thought of them not being "together" is so weird.

    i love sonic youth so much.

    but seriously i bet she is the one fucking around with younger fans.

    i am actually devastated by this. i know it's stupid of me. but i always thought they were perfect together.
    i just don't even know what's real anymore?
    if they can't last forever i guess nothing can.

    For as long as I've been buying noisy records it's been Kim and Thurstan. This is strange.

    also more power to thurston. kim looks like hell whereas thurston is quite fit still and could def do better.
