Nico, Songs They Never Play on the Radio

Nico, Songs They Never Play on the Radio

Description

Fully updated with a new introduction, this is the story of Nico, former model, film actress, singer with the Velvet Underground and darling of Andy Warhol's factory, when the world had all but forgotten her.

In 1982 Nico was living in Manchester, interested mainly in feeding her heroin habit. Local promoter Alan Wise ('Dr Demetrius') hired musicians, rented a van and set off with the band on a tour of Italy. James Young played keyboards for Nico throughout this period.

Over six years, until her death in 1988, Nico toured the world, encountering poets, artists, gangsters, losers and drifters. Fellow-spirits including John Cale, Allen Ginsberg, Gregory Corso and John Cooper Clarke are among those who appear in this classic memoir of Nico 'the last bohemian'.
