Laurie Anderson: The Nerve Of Her

Gillian G. Gaar, Rolling Stone, 19 June 1994

THE GENERAL PUBLIC MAY HAVE heard little from performance artist Laurie Anderson in recent years. But that's certain to change in 1994, a hectic year that has already seen the release of her book Stories From the Nerve Bible and a book tour, next up is the completion of a new album and the staging of a new large-scale multimedia tour (Anderson's first since her 1990 Empty Places tour). "I've got so many projects going on at this point," she says. "I'm just trying to keep them all straight."
