About the product

The singer and actress Nico was the first German supermodel, she was muse of Andy Warhol and Federico Fellini, participated in numerous independent films by Warhol and Philippe Garrel, was friends with Brian Jones, Jimi Hendrix, Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen, Lou Reed, John Cale, Iggy Pop, Patti Smith and Jim Morrison.

With her sombre timbre Nico coined songs like "Femme Fatale" and "All Tomorrow's Parties" by Velvet Underground and with "The Marble Index", "Desertshore" and "The End ..." released a record trilogy between sound and delusion, suicidality and addiction. A limiting case of the artistic, musical and performative categorisations of her time, Nico was Pop but at the same time “to be popular" didn’t mean anything to her. With her crossings between genres, Nico played a key role in the subculture of the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s and has since become an important point of reference for many artists.

This book contains numerous Nico interviews published for the first time in German, rare photographs, important record and concert reviews, interviews with companions, as well as contributions by contemporary artists, musicians and authors, which illuminate Nico's work from different perspectives and make it a new experience.
