Nico - The End...


 Here is Nico's third and final studio collaboration with John Cale. It includes Das Lied der Deutschen which when performed live was accompanied by Eno and Cale recreating the sounds of screaming divebombers and explosions. Unfortunately, but not surprisingly, the Doors cover is the least interesting track. Now go put on your Nazi uniform and fucking hang yourself...

She was a goddess to me in my teens and early twenties. So tragic sexy, so doomed - so dark and deep like a well of black beautiful water.

Having quite a bit of German blood coursing thru my veins, NICO was always my chanteuse of choice!

Eegah Oxyholle!!

Island Records' tag line for the advert for "The End" ran something like, "Don't kill yourself until you've heard the new album by Nico". Not quite suicide prevention, but alas...

Yes, I have a copy of the ad rattling around somewhere. I should post it on my blog sometime soon.
