Blonde Goddess to Dark Haired Musician
Nico died 20 years ago and would be 70 this month. As mentioned in my last post John Cale organised a tribute night in London which took place at the weekend. I think it was professionally filmed so will look out for this. Apparently, Cale was also wearing go go boots as a tribute to Nico. (He so copied me!)
John Cale shares his memories of Nico and her music career on BBC Radio 4 at the weekend and this interview can be heard here
Here is a photograph of James Dean Bradfield singing at the concert (Cale on keyboards):

I think that it is very fitting that John Cale is involved with this as he helped Nico on her way to being an established artist. Also Peter Murphy from Bauhaus knew Nico and worked with her.
I just wish I could go but only found out and so can't afford it.
So I bought these boots instead to pay homage:

Strip Tease, 1963
Musique de Serge Gainsbourg et Nico.http://turquoisechildren.online.fr/radio/mp3/Nico%20-%20Strip%20tease.mp3
Strip Tease mp3 - Nico
This was one of Nico's first starring roles and musical experiences.
In Nico Icon, this clip was shown to the music of 'Afraid' from 1970's Desertshore
When put to Afraid it added a totally different dimension and really surfaced how miserable and terrified she was.
Making blunt gestures with her long limbs and reacting to the mannequin falling apart.
Nothing made her happy.
