Off topic too, Tim Buckley replaced Jackson Browne on guitar on some of Nico's shows in NY in 1967. Has anyone heard of existing bootlegs ?

Nico pics from Head Heritage (Julian Cope's site):

 

Pre-Nico '50s modelling days as Christa Päffgen

 

Like Elvis, Nico sometimes drove the tour bus for the Velvet Underground.

 

Early days at Warhol's factory.

There's also a nice review of The Marble Index by Mr Cope, here.

I used to really like them a lot.
But not so much any more.
First two cd's are the only ones I really like.

Cale has a lot to answer for. Unfortunately, it's commonly known that some of those tapes are rotting away in somebody's basement. It's all pretty sad, because those tapes would most certainly show a different side of The Velvet Underground's story. Whoever saw them live back then says that they were much, much noisier a band live than they were on record.

Thank you so much Jico. Repped already. My God, they were all alive...how much your world can change in so few years. Many things that I heard here, have already read before. So different to see them saying it.

Not much to add just now, apart from some gorgeous pictures and articles that I now have in my possesion and I like to scan on a bigger machine at one point. Apart from that, i've spotted this creature in Shoreditch who was identically dressed and styled as Sterling Morrison on the promotional photo that CHOUT was going on about earlier on this thread, earlier today. White Light White Heat tribute band , anyone?

Off topic but Nico is soooo hot. I really would love to bring back her style. 60's women's fashion is just the greatest.

I don't know, in my opinion she is what we call in French "une beauté froide", a cold beauty to the point of putting you off.

Into this unit one early summer day walked the cocky, troubled Lou. He was escorted through a labyrinth of corridors, unaware, he later claimed, that his first psychiatric treatment session at the hospital would consist of volts of electricity pulsing through his brain. Each door he passed through would be unlocked by a guard, then locked again behind him. Finally he was locked into the electroshock unit and made to change into a scanty hospital robe. As he sat uncomfortably in the waiting room with a group of people who looked to him like vegetables, Lou caught his first glimpse of the operating room. A thick, milky white metal door studded with rivets swung open revealing an unconscious victim who looked dead. The body was wheeled out on a stretcher and into a recovery room by a stone-faced nurse. Lou suddenly found himself next in line for shock treatment.
