I was watching that movie earlier today! Harper, very entertaining private eye movie with a script by the great William Goldman and a great cast about a private detective "hired by a bitch to find scum."
John Waters told Nico he would like her to sing at his funeral. She said "Ven are you goink to die?"
There was a pretty good film about her middle aged years out a couple of years ago called Nico 1988, weirdly kind of a black comedy about how affected she was by heroin. You need a strong sense of humour to appreciate, it though, and I imagine the real woman would have hated it.
How nice to see the feedback on Nico.There's a book 'Songs they never play on the radio' written by her keyboard player which is worth a read.
As we’re talking about Nico, how about this? Kevin Ayres, Nico, John Cale and Brian EnoHow nice to see the feedback on Nico.
'The Velvet Underground and Nico' was a seminal album of my youth.
There's a wonderful obituary from Rolling Stone magazine and so many facets therein I was personally unaware of.
It also features a particularly befitting photograph.
It could be a Ducati, I suppose. Specifically, something along these - very shapely - lines, only slightly more monochrome...
I think it's a Ducati, because I 'think' I can make out 'CAT' on the fuel tank badge with the photo enlarged and tweaked for contrast. However, I can't find any vintage photos showing Ducati badging in that particular style.I think it's a a modified Triumph Tiger Cub. Single cylinder 200cc. But then again.....
