Nico-Mania in Germany 2018 (Nico - 1938-1988)

Post by Purple Lips » 15 Oct 2018 21:13

Hi y'all

just wanna let you know about all the recent Nico publications/ events this year - quite a bunch!

Nico - 1938-1988, so 2018 is an anniversary year.

- Limited 7'' of Nico's first single ("I'm not Sayin") on white vinyl (Record Store Day release 04-2018) with picture sleeve.
- 180g repress of the "Chelsea Girl" LP (Stereo) - i own a copy, great sound!
- new bio book by german author Tobias Lehmkuhl: "Nico - Biographie eines Raetsels", 280 pages in german language with B/w pics - own this one too but i'd only rate it a 5 out of 10.
- Bio pic "Nico: 1988" in cinemas for a while. https://www.imdb.com/title/tt7186092/
- Exhibition at Cologne's (Nico's birth-place) "Museum fuer angewandte Kunst" from 08-2018-03-2019 https://museenkoeln.de/museum-fuer-ange ... p-goes-Art
- Radio play "Being Nico" at german WDR3 radio station https://www1.wdr.de/radio/wdr3/programm ... d-100.html
- and finally many snippets on german tv and in print media about the anniversary and the publications above.

So not bad for a long-time underestimated and almost forgotten german superstar of the 50's and 60's.
I hope i arose some interest ;-)
